Time for Courtney's monthly photo challenge where we show off how we clicked it up a notch. This photo was taken just today, and I am so excited to show it off!
My friend, Laura, and I left the kids at home today and visited the Pittsburgh Zoo by ourselves. And our cameras, of course. It was a gorgeous day! Our main mission was to see the new baby gorilla that was born on February 9, 2012. And, as you can see, we were successful in our endeavors. We stalked the gorilla exhibit for about an hour. And then came back later to see them again. It was difficult to get decent pictures because it is so dark and you need to photograph them through the glass windows. (They will go outside once the weather warms up a bit.) I'm so excited about this photo. The way he looked up and appeared to be smiling. I had to use a super high ISO and still had a slow shutter speed so it is a bit grainy, but this little guy is so adorable that those things don't even matter. :)
