Thanks Steve.

It's definitely a long and tedious task Martha. Seeing some of the old memories in front of my eyes did help and bring a few smiles to my face.

Very nice images. It's always a challenge to make quality images in any commercial setting, but some of these do not say "zoo" at all, but only say "animal".

My admiration for your scanning project. I haven't the courage for it, though I definitely have the material that is begging to be scanned. But: some of the images my grandparents took in 1900 have held up far better than the ones I took in the 1980s and had processed at Walmart.

Penguins are such a funny bird, like evolution couldn't figure them out and said Let's Make Them Fancy. laf

Thank you for sharing! S-

Thanks Steve.
The kids really love the polar bear in it's pool. Some of them have to be dragged away by their parents after spending a long time in front of the glass.

Love the polar bear, I can definitely see the charm. You might well have to drag me away, too, if I were there. The penguins are also great. They are one of my captive animal favorites. Edited quite a number of photos of them in the wild that my sister took on a trip to the antarctic. (She is a world traveler, and insists I edit all the photos and videos from her trips.) Also time consuming projects that I am now a couple of years behind doing. She nags me constantly to catch up and is taking another trip late this summer.

Thanks Martha.
I understand. My brother, the same one that had me scanning 2,360 photos for him, takes a vacation every year and gives me the photos to edit. :)
(Not sure if he likes my editing or just wants to rub it in that he can afford vacations and I can't.) :D :D
