The not so living desert....

Jennifer and I went to this thing called the living desert yesterday afternoon, getting there was an adventure in itself. Google maps REALLY needs to update their maps or something cus all of the directions that we have gotten off of there lately take us WAAAAYYYYY out of the way to get to a place that like 2 miles away. So after getting lost and calling Jens brother William we were finally on track and on our way to this place. Basically its like the Wild Animal Park but it focuses on desert wildlife. We thought “hey its probably pretty cool” I wont say that the place totally sucked but it definitely was not as cool as we thought it could be. For one its not even half the size of the Wild Animal Park, the exhibits are really small so you feel kind of bad for the animals and it was really hot too so all the animals were asleep the whole time. It wasn’t all bad though cus they had this butterfly exhibit going on an I got really excited. I have been dying to try out this new toy I got (oh yeah I got some new toys, but ill update on that later) its called the Nikon R1-C1. Its this kit of 2 small wireless strobes that can attach to the front of the lens and are perfect for macro work. Do they work? LIKE A FREAKIN DREAM!!!!! We stayed until the place closed and had a lot of fun. When we got to the parking lot I saw these cool trees with yellow flowers. I knew they would be great against a yummy dark polarized sky mmmmmmmm delicious, I got off a couple of shots before leaving. That was pretty much our day and we went and hung out in downtown Palm Springs after that……..then we went to do some night shooting…….hahahahaha. Sorry for the long story, heres some pics for you. Enjoy.
