A Moment of Grace

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Aurora Billings

I was on vacation in New York City and made my first trip to the Bronx Zoo. I've always adored gorillas and was fascinated to see and capture this wonderful, tender, affectionate moment. As a photographer, I want to capture moments like this in hopes that other people will be able to see what I see: that comfort, love and family are boundless and that we as humans are not the only animals who experience feelings and bonds.

Location: Bronx, New York, USA
