Monochrome flowers

Flowers are one of my favorite subjects for photography. I always have flowers in my house. Either on a vase or my orchids are in bloom. Colors are an important reason for why I like them, but editing to monochrome is great to. It becomes more about shape. And the shapes of flowers are amazing too đŸ™‚

Monochrome monkey babies

Babies, what’s more beautiful …? It does not matter whether it is human or animal babies. It’s all cute. I am a big fan of primates and monkeys. I can watch them for hours. If there are also little ones, then it becomes extra special. I share new edits of a number of monkey babies. Hopefully you will enjoy this as much as I did when I took the picture. Under each photo you can see in which zoo the photo was taken.

Mike & Co

Recently I went to Dierenpark Amersfoort again. They have beautiful animals. This time it was I enjoyed it a lot as usual. My absolute favorite in Amersfoort is Mike. Mike is a now alderlychimpanzee with a beautiful appearance. In 2015 I made my favorite photo of him (the last photo in this blog). Meanwhile the years are starting to count, I think. He is very calm and I have only seen action when there was something to eat.

Mike was the leader of the group in the past. He is still a full member of the group, but a son is now the new leader. There are chimpanzees of different ages in the group. The youngest is Wingu. A grandson of Mike.

I share a number of photos that I took. The first is one from Mike. This was the only good photo I made during my last visit. He was constantly right behind the window. Maintenance was carried out in front of the enclosure. He made a complete study of al the activity.

A photo of Wingu. He always has something naughty about him. I love it đŸ™‚

It looks like a contemplation. I am always early and the chimpanzees are not really awake when I am there. Hence a number of photos that radiate tranquility.

Galdiolus

Today I bought flowers at Passie Flora Salland to photograph. Many flowers, too many flowers: P I only photographed one this afternoon. I found this gladiolin so beautiful! The soft color the beautiful shapes. All beauty. The rest will be in next posts. If at least I have enough time to photograph them all before they are withered đŸ™‚
