|"The tower" was never intended as a zoo, and eventually
became quite inadequate (not to mention, smelly). Yet it wasn't
until the 1830 that a new zoo was built in Regent's Park.
Notice the importance of carefully framing landscape shots as seen in the poorly cropped lower photo. The pool at the base is quite as important as the waterfall itself. Compare the two photos in this regard.
|As fascinating as zoo animals can be, the artist
should always be aware of human interactions.
