When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.
A lot closer to home this week. About an hour away from us, we have an ape rescue centre called Monkeyworld. It has an international reputation, even has a TV series following life at the park. It is mainly known for rescuing chimps who have been used as props in the tourist trade. But their interest, really, is any ape which has been forced to live outside of its natural habitat.
What amazed me was that there are online groups, where peoplevisit the sanctuary so frequently, they recognise individual chimps. So I found out that my photo today is of Marjolene. I love her pensive expresssion. I remember having to play with the camera settings, as we were indoors, she was behind glass, and I didn’t want to get glare by using a flash.
