Today I was supposed to do a demonstration. However, when I got to the hospital I ended up watching a demo that a co-worker was doing. Then I had lunch and was told that my demo had to be rescheduled. So I was free to drive back to Tulsa. So that is what I did.
The ride back was a long two hours on a rural highway. All along the way I saw signs of major ice damage and flooding damage. There were also many many farms. In the middle of the the ride between a half dozen farms I came across an Amazon.com shipping center and then right back to farms. There were so many cows and horses and I really wanted to stop but decided not to because it was a highway and I always see a shot I want just as I go by it. So if I wanted to take the shot I would have had to be able to see it well in advance so I could slow down to take it. However I am in the practice of taking shots with my eyes. I try and see things and compose a shot in my head that way I continually train my eyes and mind to see shots everywhere.
When I got to Tulsa it was around 3:00pm. I did a quick check online to see what time the Tulsa Zoo closed and I took a ride over there. The family membership to Capron Park Zoo came in handy because it got me a half price ticket. So $4.00 for two hours seemed fair. The ice damage was very evident around the zoo too. It looked really sad compared to the time I was here in 2006. It was such a hot day but the Zoo was really looking good. Here is the Tulsa Zoo photo set from 2006.
I was able to walk around for a while and take a bunch of photos of the animals. At first I was pretty disappointed because most of the animals were asleep. However, I have learned that patience is the best skill when dealing with animals. You have to take your time and let them do things at their own pace. I really get annoyed with slack jawed yokels who roar at the lions and shout to make the animals move and whatnot. People annoy me a lot sometimes.
Of course I think I may have been interrupting something when I took today’s PAD. But they both look pretty happy to me.
Here are the rest of the photos I took at the zoo.
And this was an unexpected good thing that happened to me today.
