Red Monkey



Red Monkey

Like what I've said in my last post, I met up with new friends last Saturday and together we explored the walled city of Intramuros. While in Fort Santiago, brother asked me to take a picture of him, and when he was climbing one of the walls to pose for a picture, I noticed this monkey figurine on the corner along with some of the concrete debris. I don't know why it was there (maybe it was thrown away because it was broken), and I don't know what's the connection of the monkey to the place, but it did caught my attention and I just couldn't help not to take a shot of it. Brother was upset a little because I took a photo of the monkey first, but one of our companions actually raved at how I took notice of the monkey.

It looked a bit eerie, so even if I wanted to take it home, I just can't. =) FYI, Fort Santiago is where the national hero Dr. Jose Rizal was imprisoned before his execution in Luneta, now known as the Rizal Park.

The red ape looks as if he has found a home, like he is leaving his lair looking for food and excitement...

Very cool and a little freaky. I would have taken a picture of the monkey first, too :lol:

Found objects are often great photo subjects. Very nicely done.

The weathered look adds so much character to the monkey.

That's a great photo for Ruby Tuesday! I think the monkey does look a bit eerie though :O)

Raven said...

Nice shot. He looks like he has seen better days. I think he looks a touch diabolical myself. But interesting, especially in bright red.

You have a good eye. If I had seen this, I would have taken the picture, too. IT is interesting -- and rather sad -- laying there discarded.
