Toronto's Tigers and Elephants

We both had time off at the end of June, so Andrew took me to the zoo.  While he took some excellent photos with his Nikon, I played with the TiltShift Generator App on my iPhone.

Zoos have always tickled me. Every fall my parents would take my brother and me to the zoo in Winnipeg.  October or November were the perfect time—cold enough that the tigers were slinking out of the coolness of their dens to have a prowl around, paw at the glass, and give us a growl, for good measure.

And this latest trip to the Toronto Zoo was on an oddly cool day in June, so the cats were on the prowl, and everything else was either squawking, honking or enthusiastically burrowing noses into sand, on the hunt for some juicy grub.

I haven't been to the zoo in ages, and am dying to go. Loved visiting vicariously through you. Really fun post. :)
