At the Belle Isle Zoo Again





We went near sunset. Many of the leaves have fallen, but some still remain. I would have liked to have explored more, but we would have been visible to the nearby road had we gone any further. We were not vandalizing, just looking and taking pictures, but we wouldn't anyone to think we were responsible for all the destruction there.

1)BB observes the old zoo from underneath the elevated walkways.
2)inside the lady's room
3)inside the office/entryway
4)a leaf in the courtyard.

Enjoy your week!

Greetings from Australia.
Unusual angle in the "ladies" room - I like the way you did that. The first photo is wonderful, makes me wish I was there looking at that glorious tree.
Cheers.

Like the perspective in the ladies room and the amazingly red leaf.
The expression of BB in the first photo says everything...

Thank you BlossomFlowerGirl and VP.

It was VERY DARK in the ladies' room, and I did not have a tripod, so I set the camera on counter itself, though I must admit that I took some time trying to get the position right.

I agree with BFG. Very well done. I find it particularly intriguing.

Stop on your way back to HS in the spring and I'll show it to you if its still accessible.

Someone expected lots of school groups and delighted children at those sinks. Sad to think that someone painted all those charming butterflies only to have them sit in the dark and cold.

The desolation is palpable! The colors are superb. Even the animals are great!

I like this kind of exploration but agree it's smart to keep out of sight. This is such a fun place to photograph!
