Oakland Zoo


Another zoo. The same questions. Why always exotic animals? Why is there never a section dedicated to local wildlife?

I know it’s nice to push the preservation of all the endangered species. At the same time, we’re paving so much local open space that reminding people what we stand to lose around here would be nice to see as well.

In any case, the Oakland Zoo is nice in that the animal enclosures are big yet encourage the animals to hang out in the open. This makes photography both easy and hard. Easy since you can see the animals. Hard since they’re just chilling and sleeping and not really doing anything and there’s nothing really to frame them in.


And some photos of friends/family having fun as well.
