You all must be aware of this challenge by now. I was so thrilled when Cee at Cee’s Photography Blog asked me to join for this challenge. On the same day Marilyn also asked me whether I would be interested in it. I said, ” Why not ?” It offers so much fun and creativity and moreover all my friends seem to enjoying this.
Here is my photo
Oh My God ! He is so close…..my hands trembled for a second while I tried to take a close up of this unpredictable creature. Tarun was not at all happy about my bravado nevertheless he was the one who was on steering and managed to bring the car so close so that I could get a perfect close up. I thought he would run away but hats off to this character… he did not budge from his place despite we were at shortest distance away.I slowly positioned my camera, slid down the window glass clicking one after the other. Once I download them I found that the focus could have been better. Might be I was holding the camera too tightly since I had this fear of him snatching it away all along I took the pictures. Really he was within the reach.
As a little girl I heard the story of langurs slapping the children from my grand mother. The Hanuman langur is capable of doing nasty things at times like, breaking the wind screen of the car with his tail tip which is generally looping towards his head or jumping on the car roof to bend it nicely. They are considered sacred in Hindu religion but the irony is they have to steel food to survive in urban areas because people feed them only in temples. Farmers harm them for raiding their crops and biting people.
We stood there for sometime, parked our car to enjoy the misty weather. I took pictures of the trees, the valley and some more langurs. Finally we winded up and left for our home. Tarun asked me,” What will you do with so many photos?” How can I make him understand the importance of these pics? I will need those for next four days. lol……
The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
1) Post a photo (or more!) each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or nothing more than a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to you.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is supposed to be fun. It is not a command performance!
I would like to sent invitations tomorrow as all of whom I thought have already been invited by other participant bloggers so let me check with others. Have a nice day.
