Drawing inspiration

          Speaking as someone who can see the pictures but needs the aid of the camera to capture the moment, I’m always fascinated (if not a little envious) when I see someone putting pen or paint to paper with such wonderful results.  Bearing this in mind when we came across a group of students in the “Parc Zoologique de Lille”  I was just as happy to photograph the students as I was the animals they were capturing on canvas.

79. Laughing kookaburra.

81. Red and green macaw.

91. Rhinos.

          If you do visit Lille, and I believe with its own Eurostar stop it’s becoming a popular location for a weekend city-shopping break, be sure to take a little time to visit the “Parc Zoologique de Lille“, its one of the few zoos that I’ve actually felt comfortable in, I could have quite easily have spent the whole day there with my camera.
