There's an iPad app for the Western Lowland Gorillas at the NCZoo. Check it out and let me know how it looks. I can't see it. Haven't earned my iPad yet. https://itun.es/i6xK9HC

Here's the very first post at the blog about the baby gorillas at the #NorthCarolina Zoo. Bomassa will turn one year old Sunday, so we thought you might like to see how much that little #gorilla   man has changed! We continue to visit weekly, take #pictures, and share the story with you, our treasured readers. We should do a #wordcloud !

The #WesternLowlandGorillas   at the NCZoo? There's an app for that! 
Only for #iPad so far though. So yours truly,  the author of #ZooBabyBlog can't even check it out. 

If you can, write and let us know how you like it!

Does Jamani's little uncle look familiar to you?   You might think this is her son Bomassa, born in 2012. But no, this is Jamani's Uncle Monroe, born in 2011.  I have seen other pics of Monroe, but I really did a double take on this photo. In this particular photo, Monroe seems to be the spitting image of Bomassa Gorilla from the NCZoo.

A Lasting Impression

“During your life everything you do and everyone you meet rubs off in some way. Some bit of everything you experience stays with everyone you’ve ever known, and nothing is lost. That’s what is eternal, these little specks of experience in a great and enormous river that has no end.” - Harriet Doerr

This is Monroe, a baby gorilla that I use to visit almost every weekend at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I learned so much from spending hours watching this little guy… not just how to photograph animals, but about how sensitive and emotional they are; from joy and sorrow to everything in between. He made me laugh with his antics, and even brought tears to my eyes. He made a lasting impression on me. 

(BTW... just found out that the San Francisco Zoo just had a new baby Gorilla born 4 days ago! I am sooooo happy!)

It's funny, because I always say that Apollo looks like President Martin Van Buren, with the hair the way it frames his face. And here Monroe is a gorilla that is named after a president!  http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/martinvanburen

And here ya go. I #challenge anyone else to have a #wordcloud looking anything like this! This is the result of one year of reporting on the baby gorillas at the +Visit North Carolina Zoo!

Thanks, +Delbert Warner for the idea of turning my random posts into a blog. The project has been A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

Olympia Gorilla by +Wade Brooks 
Now at the #NCZoo and mother to Apollo, she's the  daughter of Zoo Atlanta's  famous Willie B. His is quite a story in the annals of zoos, which at one time, mostly consisted of cages around small cement floors, with no opportunity for the animals to step onto soil or grass at any point of their lives. He lived alone there for many years in less than stellar conditions and at one point, was given a television in the hopes of alleviating his boredom. Efforts to create better living conditions for Willie B were pivotal in a radical redesign of the zoo, which now provides a much more healthy and natural living experience for all of its animals. Olympia's dad Willie B was named for the same William B. Hartsfield for whom the Atlanta airport was named, and who, as Mayor of Atlanta, helped to bring about the much needed changes at the Atlanta Zoo, now known as Zoo Atlanta.
 
Gorilla Portrait

At the end of June I visited the NC Zoo one morning and took a bunch of photographs. Mostly of the Gorillas and the Lions, but a few others, too. I still haven't processed all of the images from that day.

I like to get out and shot a few days every week and that means I need to process a bunch of images. I am learning to take fewer pictures and end up with more keepers, so that's good. I probably just need to work on my overall workflow speed.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great rest of the week. 

Cheers,
Wade
