  1. The giraffe has tender little eyes…right before he starts lifting weights and making those muscles rippp and flexing them for little kids, you know, like what always happens at the zoo

    • Yeah, he’s definitely going to be handsome when he’s all grown up.

    Where was this taken? It’s a beautiful shot, but those are stark surroundings for a giraffe.

    • This was taken at the Virginia Zoo. The giraffe was inside because some guests were coming to feed it. Normally it would be outside in its large roaming area.

    i can’t tell you how sad this makes me. the wall (corner) just reaffirms my disdain for zoos.

    • It does look stark, but the giraffe was just in there waiting to be fed. It can walk outside anytime it wants.

    Such a weird juxtaposition. It’s like the giraffe’s a delinquent and been sent to juvie giraffe jail. Beautiful contrast, though.

    • It does seem that way, but luckily there’s an exit nearby. The giraffe’s free to roam.

  6. What a contrast the Neopan film gave to this shot! I never try BW film and rarely seen user of BW in 80-90s years. You keep it alive…

    • The good thing is, lots of people still shoot black and white film. It should be around for quite some time.
