This blog was originally started Nov 11th, 2009 for a project called 365 in-Camera. After year 1, the blog was changed to a daily photo site continuing until Dec 2011 (778 shots). After a year off, a daily photo begins again Jan 1, 2013. All photographs on this web site are protected by Creative Common licensing and cannot be used for commercial purposes without permission.
We visited the Toronto Zoo for the first time this year. The gorilla exhibit is always rather bittersweet for me as I love seeing these beautiful animals up close, but I'm often saddened by their captivity. Last summer, the older female Samanda died and reports said that the family definitely showed their sadness and perhaps that was what was on this gorilla's mind on Friday. I think this may be Charles, the older male, but I'm not certain.
