Photography Friday – Silverbacks
(Today is the last day you’ll see fresh content on pofgblog.com! Luckily for you, I moved the whole thing to joerob.com. Go there and click the orange rss button in the top right, or the email subscribe button next to the orange rss button, so that you won’t miss any great content! Starting tomorrow, all you’ll see here is “We’ve Moved!”
Time for another Photography Friday post, where I share some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken with you. Today’s photos come from a trip to Zoo Atlanta in 2005. They are photos of the majestic silverback gorilla, and I think they are cool. Enjoy!
These are such amazing animals! I especially love the top photo. The alpha male noticed the small group of us gawkers that had gathered to look at them. You could almost read his mind as he walked towards us – “What are these things? Are they a threat? Do I need to defend my family?” To me, it was just another example of God’s amazing creativity and imagination in creating the world. These gorillas are not on the level of humans, who are created in the image of God, yet there definitely seems to be something more to them than to, say, a mouse. Simply incredible!
