Thanks and a Victorian Monkey on an Elephant’s Back
Before we get to the photo for today, I want to say thank you. Today starts the beginning of my fourth month of blogging, and I am truly amazed and humbled by the response this blog and my creative photography have received. I am honored. So many thanks for all those who visit, like, subscribe and comment on my work. I truly appreciate it. And I hope I can keep this up. (:
Now on to this aristocratic looking monkey. (:
I was over at a house that had a lot of Victorian and antique objects — some just a feast for my eyes.
There was this one object, an elaborate brass elephant with a monkey on his back. I was just fascinated by it. The monkey in certain ways looked human, which puzzled me, and there was just something about him that entranced me.
I shot this photo in early morning light. I placed the elephant on a table where the sun was shining, so he would be lit where the sun hit him, but all else would be in deep shadow.
Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/10.
