The Odd Couple

With lots of people still off work on holiday, and the final day of the school holidays being warm and dry, there was quite a crowd at the zoo.

They oohed and aahed over the tiger, who paced and posed before them, and crashed out in true cat style.








They smiled as they snapped the lions, especially when one rather large cub sat on the other, almost as if she were trying to mate with her, as their mother looked disapprovingly on.






But no one was taking much notice of the people most used to being the centre of attention, and having their pictures taken.

And trying not to be intrusive I only got some rather blurred shots. But there she was in her black furry hat with ear flaps, and there was he, his crinkly grey hair.

The odd couple.






Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.

for real? Wow!!! And those cats are BIG! I don't think I'd know either of those actors if I tripped over them! lol

Er, JoJo, Tim Burton's a very famous movie director - Edward Scossorhands, Sleepy Hollow, Ed Wood, Alice, The Corpse Bride, to name but a few. He pretty well made Johnny Depp.

Good spot Val..I doubt I would have noticed them, not among all those wonderful animals

I didn't, Eliza. I was standing there mooning over Jae Jae when someone came hurtling round the corner babbling that they were there.

JoJo said...

I've heard of them of course, i just would never recognize them in real life. Wasn't Helena Bonham Carter 'Bellatrix LeStrange' in the Harry Potter movies?

val said...

She is, JoJo. See how literally I take things? Her family's pretty high-powered. If you ever saw the Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy, her cousin Crispin was Mr Bingley. Her dad was a financial bigwig.
