Oakland Zoo Fun

David Cheung whips out his Canon S100 for a quick shot of Dianne Tanaka in front of the elephant enclosure at the Oakland Zoo.

I would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who came out for our Camera West Photo Walk at the Oakland Zoo this morning.

The weather was just about perfect and aside from the bashful lions, we saw our share of interesting animals to photograph. The biggest challenge of the day was not getting run over by all the baby carriages moms were pushing. I think zoos are enjoyed most by kids and photographers alike.

Most of our group were accomplished photogs so I felt more like a zoo guide than a photo guide but that’s ok as long as we all had fun!

Rather than post my photos of our outing, I’ll link you to David Cheung’s Flickr site. David, one of the photo walk participants did a much better job of documenting our morning at the Zoo than I did. Check out his photos here.

And speaking of photos, today’s participants will soon be sharing their photos on our Camera West Photo Walk Flickr page, so be sure to check them out later in the week. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

As always, check out our future photo walks and workshops on our Events tab to the left of this post. We have some good ones coming up!
