Eye Contact

Uploaded: February 07, 2006


This photo was taken at the Philidelphia Zoo on our anniversary at the beginning of January 2006. I had to wait a while before he would turn around. He was too proud to pose for me. Shot with natural light and automatic settings. I used PS to blur the background further, and to enhance his color.
