Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces

This face is fascinating! I sat watching the king of the mountain at the SF zoo for a while. He just chilled out watching the crowd making sure his peeps were safe sunning on the rocks. There is an intelligence to his eyes I just can’t get over. The fact that the picture captures it is absurd and creeps me out a little. Dont ask me why. I think it is just a natural or primal reaction bred in us for hundreds of years that requires me to be afraid of this beautiful and powerfully dangerous creature.

I caught him on two different camera’s. One shot he’s looking right at me.

Sorry for the raw shot. Thought you might want to see him checking you out πŸ™‚

  1. The sepia gorilla is awesome, looks like it was taken 100 years ago. Kinda looks like King Kong, you should photoshop a miniature girl in standing next to him looking up πŸ™‚
