one of my all time favorite photographers is nick brandt. his photos are mind blowing. the type that leave you wondering how the hell he’s able to capture a single photo like he does…let alone hundreds. somehow he’s able to get extremely close photos and still implement some sort of tilt shift magic into his shots. craziness. anyway, this was my first time to the national zoo! it was a really quick trip mostly due to the rain, but i still managed to get a few shots that i don’t mind lookin’ at.
