While scanning through my daily feeds, I happened upon a story linking to another article that linked to this: “Monkeys” [link] on what I think is a Russian(?) LiveJournal blog.
At first the pictures just made me laugh, but then when I looked a little closely, staring into their eyes, I got the feeling that I was looking at, dare I say it, a distant cousin or long lost relative!
The more I looked the more human they looked. Their faces are all different yet have all the characteristics of any human portrait picture. Bewilderment at what the hell is going on, frustration as to why something so simple can take so long and with out a doubt — failing to smile when the picture is actually taken.
Takes me back to those school photos, god how I hated them!
