You may remember the last time I posted about the fun Greg and I had attending a Steampunk event here in Seattle.
(Oh yes, that's right. On very special occasions my nerd and I dress up in costume and go out. In public. It's typically awesome, and the event we attended recently was no exception.)
We were very excited when we heard that our local zoo was going to host a tropical expedition with a steampunk theme. We even got up early for the occasion. But coffee was, of course, required.
(You may note that a lot of these photos were shot with my fisheye lens. That may or may not be because I picked up a Maya Road Gear book that I may or may not be using to make a minibook about this adventure.)
When we got to the zoo, we were greeted by the free-ranging peacock. It was a little chilly, so he was just hanging out by the classroom tent.
So there were about 20 of us in the class, all adults. Our instructors were funny, focused, and quite knowledgeable.
Everything was going swimmingly, until we went into the tropical house. And my lenses TOTALLY fogged up. Dangerously so. That's what I get for going from Seattle weather to the tropics in less than three minutes.
There was just a ton of really cool stuff to see. Among other things, we saw jaguars, frogs, snakes, birds, monkeys, and even some gorillas.
