Scott Kelby Photowalk 2010

Saturday, July 24, 2010
Honolulu Zoo

Jalna, Susie and I signed up for Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk which was held at the Honolulu Zoo. We got to go into the zoo after it closed for the day and practically had the whole zoo to ourselves. Our guide took us around hoping to get us that "perfect" shot. This walk also comes with a contest, grand prize winning a $1000 gift certificate from Adorama Camera! (But you are also competing against people worldwide, I definately can kiss that prize goodbye!!) :(

I didn't come up with much, but these were some of the better ones. Not sure which one I'm gonna enter yet...

Wow- you got up close huh? I didn't know they had skunks (was it a skunk?). I like the goat looking thing- or gaselle? antelope? Guess I don't know my animals that well.

skunk?? Hahaha! no, that was a porcupine....the gazelle looking thing, I have no idea what that was, our guide couldn't remember it's name. He was in the gazelle area though. Isn't he sooo cute?

I was able to run to the orangutan section and be the first one there so I got to plop my butt down right in front of the glass before anyone could get in my way! :)

K, your entry is going to be either the b/w hippo or the goat looking thing in the greens. :)

Les said...

the hippo? really? I think the goat guy is cute...I was leaning towards the gorilla with the stuff coming out of his mouth, but i dunno...

Betty Townsend said...

The gorilla one is good...I do like the antelope like shot. The hippo is good too. Wishing you well.

gazelle thingy!

Les said...

Thanks Betty! It's hard when I don't have any good ones to choose from!

Kat...hmmmmm....

Gorilla? What gorilla? Great shots by the way . . . choke better than mine. All my animals are people.

Les said...

yah, yah, yah, what did she say they were? Primates? Orangutan?? Who knows, I was barely paying attention! I don't blame you for taking pictures of people, half of them belong in the zoo anyways! hahahaa! :)

I like all the ones mentioned -- the b/w hippo, gazelle, orangutan pics -- but I also like the first black monkey one, too. I think the colors really pop. Do you have to enter just one?

Les said...

ok, you're not helping me! :) Yah, we're only allowed one entry...

teresa said...

K. If I HAD to choose, it'd go with your pick, the orangutan with the straw in his mouth. He draws you in with that look and the straw is just cute!

Les said...

hahahhaa thanks Tree!

Looks good to me! Great shot of Rusty or is that is girlfriend? Nice hippo shots too, usually they are in the water and you only get the top of their head. Looks like you had a great time.

Les said...

I think that's both Rusty and his girlfriend, I have no idea which one is which though! We got lucky with the hippos, our guide fed them while we were there so we were able to get up close and personal :)
