Auckland Zoo


Today Jeremy and I went to the zoo. We took the Canon with the hope of capturing some really beautiful shots of the animals but arrived to discover that even though we brought the camera along, we had sadly left the memory card at home. So unfortunately our day was instead shot on our iphones which doesn't allow the same freedom and quality, but hopefully you get the idea! Getting up close with the cheetah was probably the highlight of the day, but the meerkats, otters, seals and lions were firm favourites too.

Officially we have internet in our new home now as well, so my hiatus from blogging wasn't as long as I anticipated! Looking forward to getting back into it and documenting life in Auckland :) x

  1. the feeling of leaving your memory card at home is horrid! i've done that a handful of times & hated myself for it, too! and my phone camera -ha, let's just say, i'm dinosaur age w/ my phone.

    love that you had coffee cups in your hand, totally our style, too! :D

    i'm hoping to visit our zoo when it's not toooooo humid out!

  5. Despite not having your card, these photos are really nice! I can't wait to go to the Melbourne Zoo and use my camera, hopefully you will have reminded me to double check my camera for the memory!

    I was hoping you could take a look at my new blog and leave some feedback if possible.. I'd really appreciate it, thanks Amanda!

  16. It's curious that you guys are in Oz and all the animals featured in this post are African, haha.

    I'm going to a little zoo I discovered recently on Saturday. I cannot wait!
