    • Glad you liked it, Jet πŸ™‚

      I wanted to post these images for a long time, but the quality of the images were not so good.
      But seeing the theme for this week, I couldn’t resist πŸ™‚

  1. OMG MONKEY! I don’t know if you remember but I LOVE monkeys πŸ˜€ So seeing your photos has made my weekend even better!

    Such a creative interpretation of this week’s theme. I wonder why the monkeys decided to follow the man with the umbrella. Do you know what those things are on the floor? They look like flowers (or piles of rubbish?) to me and the monkeys seemed very interested in playing with them.

    • Yea Mabel, I do remember that πŸ™‚

      If you were there, you would have had a great time just watching this monkey brigade in action…

      Temples are safe heavens for them, as no one would hurt them or drive them away.
      They will get enough food from the devotees and from temple itself. In fact we have to be careful πŸ™‚

      Here, this old gentle man, wanted to venture into their territory, to wash his hand or something, they took it seriously, and he had no option, but to back off πŸ™‚

      • “monkey brigade” πŸ˜€ I love how you say that!

        The last time I saw a crowd of monkeys like that was up in the Batu Caves (caves and temples up a steep slope) in Malaysia. These monkeys were very fierce, reaching out to passerbys and grabbing their bags to, what I assume, find food. I hope the monkeys aren’t like that in India. It sounds that they might be a bit so… πŸ™‚

        • You are right, Mabel πŸ™‚ I had been to Batu caves in 2010 Nov. and saw them in action.

          They are no less different here in India too, never ever try to feed them or show the food stuff in your hand. In some places I had to literally fight my way through them to reach the destination… some times it’s really scary.

          But most of times, it’s sheer fun watching them, if you keep some distance and got a telephoto lens πŸ™‚

        • “…saw them in action.” Your comments never fail to amuse me. Sreejith πŸ˜€ You have great potential to write an action-packed novel that sells well!

          But back to the monkeys. Yeah, monkeys can be very demanding. Never, ever bring bananas along with you if you’re visiting monkeys πŸ™‚

  3. How fun! and I agree with the other readers – and I also really like the feel of the man being barefoot – pants wet – almost like a full alive feel ing (like life’s too short to not take off your shoes and splash in puddles)

    and then in the second photo we have the one pant leg that fell from its roll – which gives the feel of a little time between picture 1 and picture 2 – both photos are a perfect pair for twist – and glad your lens was there to capture it! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much, Yvette πŸ™‚

      I was in no hurry that day, and just watching the action unfolding right in front of me.

      I had to be a bit careful though, always looking left, right, behind and above πŸ™‚

      The temple monkeys are relatively less aggressive, but it all changes so fast, if they spot anybody venturing to their territory… That’s what happened here, they drove this person away in no time πŸ™‚
