I took this a few years ago while visiting a local zoo. Now I have mixed feelings on zoos. I love seeing the animals, I think they could have a better life out of captivity. Anyway, this is not really a debate about the ethics of zoos, although to me this captures everything about this statement.
The monkey looks so sad, despite getting the best care the zoo can offer.
Not to blow my own trumpet but I love the how the light and shadows play in this shot. The dark edges making the focal point confined to the centre of the frame.
If nothing else this makes a change from me writing about Greek mythology.
