365 Day Photography Challenge- Day 6- Animal Documentaries and Photography

Today was spent in the city (Sydney) with one of my best friends Jayson. I have known Jayson for about 4-5 years now. We met at a part time job we were working while we were both still at University. We discovered, after a short time, that we are quite similar and thus have been friends ever since. In one of the hardest years of my life last year, Jayson was there, he’s been there through great, life changing times, and horrible, life changing times. It sounds corny, but I know that we’ll always be friends. We’ll be old grandma and grandpa listening to Triple J and watching animal documentaries together.

Jays and I went into Sydney today to watch a documentary at the IMAX theatre called “Born to be Wild”. Many things made this an excellent doco, mainly that Morgan Freeman narrated it, but also that it showed two women who have spent their lives saving orphaned animals, one saving elephants in Kenya, the other saving orangutans in Borneo. Some amazing people doing amazing things and it makes me want to get out there and take some risks to help these animals.

We also went into Sydney to take photos. Jays just recently got a Nikon D5100, one model up from my Nikon D5000 and wanted to test it out. Unfortunately it was quite a grey day in Sydney today, but we still had fun. We rode the monorail, many times, got annoyed at Sydney Aquarium for no longer letting teachers in free, met some nice foreigners (hey Jays?). The photo is Jays on the monorail, you can see Centrepoint Tower (which I think it’s now commercialised state is called Sydney Tower) in the background. All in all it was a great day, and I’m exhausted. We’re heading to Taronga Zoo in a few weeks to take more photos so stay tuned.
