We were so distracted by the animals we kept forgetting to take photos of each other. Here is one of the few.

I couldn’t decide which I like more, the movement from the ripples in the water or the stillness with him staring at his reflection.

Singapore: The Zoo part I

All the times I’ve been to Singapore I’ve never been to the Zoo. So for this trip I made it a must-see, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! One of the highlights of our trip. You can tell how much fun I had because I took a butt-load of photos. My way of saying you can expect a few more animal themed posts in the near future.

The zoo is a bit of a ways away so leave early, we left our hotel at around 8:00 and got to the zoo a little past 9. Take the MRT to Ang Mo Kio and from there take the number 138 bus that’ll will drop you off right at the zoo. Once there ask for a map with the animals feeding schedules and various shows they have prepared, then just plan accordingly.

Enjoy!

Aside from a breathtaking view of this massive lake they also had a gorgeous orchid garden. A great place to stop and recuperate in between all your exploring.

I nearly lost it when I saw they placed the meerkats next to the desert warthogs. It’s Timon and Pumba! haha someone definitely had a healthy sense of humor when they thought this up.

Portrait of a Horse

I got it in my head that I really wanted to photograph a horse. The last time I had the opportunity to photograph a horse was in Inner Mongolia and France. Now I was itching to do it again. Luckily I found a stable and went for a quick visit and got a 5 minute portrait of this gorgeous guy.
