"The sounds of their growls... filled this canyon" - Old Zoo, Griffith Park


Jill and I took pictures of each other this morning at the Old Zoo in Griffith Park. Leave it to Jill to be new to LA and know of all the good abandoned places in town... 
Advances in the zoological sciences have deemed these former chambers unfit for animals. This vintage faux fur Jordache jacket is perfect in such an environment (as I channel a very frustrated polar bear). It really belongs in the disco but Jill has yet to discover an abandoned discotech... If I didn't know the provenance of this coat I would have expected to find a vial of cocaine in one of the pockets. 
If you ever need a good place to do bad things - this is probably the spot. There wasn't much evidence of wrong-doing aside from the graffiti. I think the worst has already been done. Those poor bears, macaws, elephants, reptiles, lions, monkeys and goats etc... What an existence...

Thanks Jill! I needed to get an outfit post out of my system - it was a long time comin'...

Hope everyone is making the most of their weekend. Satisfying cravings, urges and the like!

Le lieu est fascinant ! Quel drôle d'endroit pour un shooting, juste parfait.
Avec ton manteau magnifique, tu es la panthère ou le tigre blanc oublié dans les méandres de ce vieux zoo : j'adore !!!
Eye of the (white) tiger, you've got the power...
Sauvage et dangereuse, tu as du bien t'amuser ;)
