Monday Photo(s): Reactionary

with 3 comments

You guys get a special two-fer today!

The Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence currently has a big dinosaur exhibit going on–they’ve got a whole bunch of maybe-not-life-sized-but-still-pretty-big animatronic dinosaurs, so of course we had to take Kelsey, who loves her some dinosaurs.

The downside of taking Kelsey to see the exhibit? We had to take Laurel, who’s not so much down with the dinosaurs…or really with anything else that might scare her. At all.

The sculpting on the dinosaur models was pretty decent, even if the actual “anima” part of “animatronic” was a bit lame–most would just kind of move their torsos up and down a bit, though there was one that actually spit water at passers-by. That would be this one:

And this would be Laurel’s reaction to the Aquaexpectosaurus:

Poor kid. She’s never going to be able to watch The Land Before Time again.

  2. Slightly off topic, but if there’s any way I can force the Deadly Fists of Kung Fu to include these pictures in their “official” CD, is that okay with you? I’m just enthralled by them. Dunno why.

  3. Sure, Tim, as long as you give me a photo credit. :)

    I’m a little wary of the dinosaur pic, only because of potential copyright issues, but since I doubt anyone remotely connected with that exhibit will ever see the DFKF album, I’d imagine it’s not a problem. But you can slap the pic of Laurel wherever as long as you don’t Photoshop something dirty in there. :)
