Day 185 – Working With Clay

Post for Sunday, July 4th

We visited the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where there is no shortage of good pictures to be taken. More often than not though, pictures of the animals in zoos aren’t always as good after the fact as you think they will be; or they just look “typical”. So, unimpressed with those, I continued to search for a photo subject for the day that had something more to it.

We came across an area in the park where there were lots of interactive things for kids (and adults), including bongo drums, a clay working area, and a nice shaded, grassy area filled with hula hoops and jump ropes. Needless to say the kids always jump right in and go for it, but surprisingly there were just as many adults hula-hooping as there were kids. We all had our turn at it too (and NO, there will not be any pictures of me hula-hooping posted here – but I will say… I was good! haha).

While I watched the kids work with the clay, I took a peek through the camera, zoomed in and was really intrigued at how cool this looked, with the sun hitting the little hands covered with water and clay.
