Zoo of the Uncanny
So I was walking through the Saint Louis Zoo the other day, and I turned around to witness the strange Arbusian scene of a little girl trying to coax a small flock of exotic birds to be her friend. After taking the picture above, I started to think about how really strange the whole zoo environment is, with all of the animals tidily on display for their (often disgusting) human counterparts to look at, all wild-eyed. The zoo is a fantastically odd place, and I tried to snap a few photos that relayed this feeling that I was having at the time. Enjoy.
