This is one of my favorite images from Bali.
While in Indonesia, Alisha and I went to a nearby temple on the edge of a forest. Because the temple was so close to a heavily wooded area and not used very much by the locals, the temple had become over-run by monkeys. For the most part, the monkeys are friendly and curious.
Alisha took some pictures of the monkeys and showed them themselves on her camera’s display. Eventually, we realized the monkeys were more interested in their reflection on the glass then their actual picture.
Watching the monkeys interact with each other made me really realize how close we are to each other and how small our world really is.
