Fota Wildlife Park

My family had a lovely, fun day at Fota Wildlife Park in Cork last weekend. The giraffes weren’t camera shy and even seemed curious of the public. I firstly took a normal photo of a giraffe and then tried a few different angles. Which photo do you like best?

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight

An Amur tiger relaxing in Dublin Zoo. The largest in length and the heaviest of all cats, Amur tigers also have the thickest fur to protect them from the bitter cold of their habitat. Humans are their only predators and, although legally protected, they are still killed for their fur and body parts for use in traditional eastern medicines and as ornaments or charms. Estimates of their numbers in the wild range from as low as 150 to over 400.

Post title is taken from ‘Eye Of The Tiger’, the Survivor song made world famous by Rocky 3.

Every Dog Must Have It’s Day (Dulux Dog)

Dulux Dog

I did my first photo shoot last Saturday for my local hardware store. One of their attractions for the kids was Aslan, ‘the’ Dulux Dog instore. Kids had their chance to get a photo taken with him. I was surprised by the amount of people that turned up to get their photo taken; over 200. It was a relentless but fun day and I was getting a little bit worried that I’d run out of space on my 2 memory cards. But all was okay in the end. Here’s a few pictures of the start attracion- Aslan.

The Old English Sheepdog is the brand mascot for Dulux paint. The dog was first introduced in advertising campaigns in 1961. Since then they have been a constant and highly popular feature of Dulux television and print adverts wherever the paint is sold. So much so, that many people in those markets refer to the breed as a ‘Dulux dog’ rather than a Sheepdog.

The wire takes away from the picture a lot but I like it a lot so decided to include it. Taken at Fota Wildlife Park in Cork. A great day out for the family.
