Happy Holiday Monday

Even if you don’t have a holiday today, hope you get a chance to relax for at least a bit like this chimp:

ISO 100 f.5 1/25 50mm

The reality behind this photo is that it was hot at 8 in the morning and every being was looking for a bit of shade.

Cheers!

Chimp with an iTouch

Technically, it is my oldest child that has the touch, the chimp is just looking at it:

ISO 100 50mm f/5 1/25

I didn’t actually notice right away what my child was doing, I was taking photos of another chimp at the time.  Then I noticed that a crowd was gathering and that my child was talking to the chimp and showing the chimp pictures of itself and other animals.  The chimp seemed pretty interested.  This isn’t a great picture technically speaking, there was quite a bit of glare and the glass was really dirty right in that spot.  Still, it was an interesting moment.

Cheers!
