Gemini and Personality Two

My astrological sign is Gemini and up till now I didn’t feel like the definition fit. But looking at an Internet definition a Gemini is, “Expressive and quick-witted, Gemini represents two different personalities in one and you will never be sure which one you will face.” Ok, I may be indecisive at times. And the tug of war between going out to be with others, or just staying contently alone at home may fit. Yup, I’m a Gemini when I come to think of it. Probably explains why I’m busy sharing my life in this blog, and why  you just don’t hear from me sometimes. Just saying.

Here are some Sacramento Zoo photographs I captured in twos.

Thanks for pointing out my imperfections,

I can spit further than you!

If I stay very still, they may think that they are seeing double.

I will follow you…

Hold me, squeeze me, never let me go…

Is the photographer still there? I’ll come out when she is gone.

We are there for each other.

And today I am in a sharing kind of mood.

People who need people are the luckiest people, or so they say. What do you say?

Until the next time.

 

Goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo

Camera Totin’ Tuesday met at the Sacramento Zoo last month, and right away we each decided to become members. Now I can visit often and get to know the animals.

The morning is the best time to capture active big cats.

Chimpanzees always look like they have much on their mind.

Mallard Looking At You

Once before I captured a flamingo in this pose. It is printed and hanging in my room.

I expect that I will get well aquainted with the Sacramento Zoo, understand the nature of the animals and get better photographs.  See you soon.
