Oregon Zoo

It's a view from a bridge.  Specifically, the bridge over the elephant enclosure.

I hadn't been to the zoo in years, and I like the new elephant habitat.  It's much larger than before, and with dirt or sand underfoot instead of concrete.   It's designed to keep the elephants more active and mobile.

And they did keep moving, albeit slowly.  I started to sketch one elephant at a feeding station, and then another came up and nudged her out of the way.  So my composition kept changing.  They both left before I was done and I had to complete the lines from memory, and put in shadows wherever I thought they belonged.
