I’m looking for challenges where I can dig in my archives for challenge entries. I saw Marilyn’s entries in Cee’s Painted challenge at: http://ceenphotography.com. The Oregon Zoo is filled with large painted attractions so I’m posting 3 that are favorites. Last year the zoo invited a carousel company to setup shop for the first few weeks of the new season. Families flocked to get rides as it was very colorful and entertaining. It therefore provided photo opportunities. Also in the off season the zoo sent out all three of its train locomotives to be refurbished and painted. I am particularly fond of the old steam engine.

  1. Love the photos. I wish you could have been with us a few years ago when I gave Scott a class at the zoo. We both went to prepare the steam engine for the day. It was so much fun.
