Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

For my weekly photo challenge: Room, I am using photos from a recent school trip to our Columbus Zoo. I love animals and nature. ¬†Zoos make me rather sad. Rarely do I see an animal and think, “Wow, is that a happy animal!” And while they teach us about animals and might bring more awareness to conservation, I can’t help but be sad. There are some horrific zoos in the world and ours is supposed to be one of the best. Still, it is sad. I think if the animals had a choice, they rather be doing what they are supposed to be doing, out in nature. I don’t think they think they have it good and are being protected by poachers or hunters or even their natural predators. I think they think, “Is that all there is….?” I think they think that their room is confining and limited. Imagine if my mother kept me locked in my room (as great as my room was) for my entire life. Not a life at all.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

I love Jellyfish. I got to see a super cool display of them at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD. That place is FANTASTIC! I wish I could see that exhibition everyday. I used these shots for the Free Spirit challenge because the jellyfish seem to be so free, going with the flow,  just doing their thing. Beautiful and Free! It is a glorious way to be!!!
