398. National Geographic
Great photo Radu. I'd never have guessed this was a Gibbon ... looks more like a Chimpanzee really.What funny little titties too :)
I love your write up.A really inspiring story.
It almost makes me feel ashamed that I let my childhood trauma and depression get on top of me so much. I guess I've still had a pretty amazing life though,although I've suffered heaps too. Still its not too late huh?
I'm only 47 and I can run faster and jump higher than when I was 20. I must be doing something right.
You are an inspiration to us all.

A great photo and a great story. Sounds like things I did in my youth! I brought home so many creatures my mom would stop me at the back door and make me empty my pockets before I was allowed in the house. She was really pissed when she would see all the snakes, lizards, turtles, and other creatures I would try to get into the house. Yea I read to many National Geographic's myself. That is a quality shot befitting the cover of NG.

A great picture,very sharp and detailed,the note is as well a pleasure to read,think a lot of us have the same dreams when growing up and a few will actually accomplish their dreams,
well done and TFS
With the kind of pictures you are taking these days, I will not be surprised to see your dream of getting published in the National Geographic come true one day, Radu. All the best!
Your note touches a chord in the heart of every imaginative human being. You are brave and you have realized your dream to a great extent.
The picture of this black gibbon you have posted today is so outstanding in form and content the NG would be the losers in not comissioning you instantly for an assignment.
Keep going, youngman.

Great shot of that siamang. Very soulful expression.
I wonder what she was dreaming about.
