~ Hanging out with the animals – Perth Zoo ~

Today I took a trip to the zoo with my daughter and the munchkins, I haven’t been to Perth Zoo for about 15 years.

I thought it would be a good chance to join Jude with the Lens Artists challenge – textures. Sure enough there were plenty of opportunities. All kinds of wood, fur, shells, sand and leaves. Also as it involved walking, something for Becky’s Walking Squares.

On arrival Elena hired a small wagon for Lachie and Rose, once they are in it’s hard to get them out to walk, especially Lachie!

We had chosen a fantastic day weather wise, not too hot and a cool breeze blowing through the trees. Also not busy at all with a few families with small children and some school trips.

More textures of smooth and rough

Textures is not something I’ve ever considered before, but since reading Jude’s post I’m now seeing them everywhere and appreciating them more.

This was a compromise after being told they couldn’t buy yet another toy or animal in the gift shop. Christmas will soon be here with many more presents on the way.

We did see most of the animals out and about in their enclosures, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, zebras and many more but I have so many of these photos and everyone knows what they look like!

Off we go walking together to see what is up ahead.


  1. It looks like a great day out, love the little wagon what a good idea. And lots of lovely textures too with the fur and the lovely carved kangaroo (?) head (the ears don’t look big enough) which looks to have been worn smooth by all the touching it probably gets. Thanks for the lovely walk around the zoo Alison. I’m sure my grandsons must have been there when they lived in Perth – it seems such a family oriented place.
