We were sent to Edinburgh Zoo to take some photographs to use in our portfolio. I, of course, had forgotten all about the trip and was woefully unprepared. The T-Shirt I was wearing (despite being a very cool Rolling Stone amp T-shirt like the one pictured below) was nowhere near waterproof and did very little, if anything, in the way of keeping me dry.
But as I said to my classmates at the time skin is waterproof so I plodded on and got the job done without being a whiny little girl about it. Unlike some I could mention…
When we arrived we were told by our teacher that we were going to be given a tour and then set loose to do our photography. I however had different plans having worked at the Zoo for a few years. I had no interest in doing the tour and just wanted to get stuck in so I could get the hell out of there before anyone recognized me and had me thrown out.
Despite the rain I got some not too bad shots of some of the animals and have posted them below for you to have a look at.
Lioness/lion with a haircut
Rhinoceros/funny looking giant pig
Black eyed bear of some kind. Possibly a Panda.
Sea Eagle/massive pigeon
Sergei the Meerkat
Larger image of the Pelican.
Now all there is to do is use Photoshop to make adjustments to the images for my course.
