animal portraits

I suppose, in some ways, these image are a complete insult to the incredible work that wildlife photographers create from finding these animals in their natural habitats.  Alas– these are only simple images made during visits to zoos in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Diego when my wife and I took our daughter to learn about these amazing animals when she was very young. I tried to approach these as human portraits, hoping to reflect, as anthropomorphic as it may be, something of each animal’s “personality.”
