The weight of the world on his shoulders.... by lwain

The weight of the world on his shoulders....

I am just going through all my photos from a trip to Sydney last week and really enjoying my zoo photos. This Gorilla was sitting and watching other gorillas at play and seemed to have the weight of the world on his shoulders.
Favtastic.

He does look sad and you can see the intelligence in his eyes!

Such a sad face, great shot Lindy.

Superb portrait, even if he does have a sad face. They do say that animals cannot make expressions, but I don't believe that it doesn't make sense.

this is such a great capture Lindy. It shows clearly how closely related the great apes and us humans are. ..Definitely a lot of emotion in that face.

A wonderful portrait but he looks so sad, do you think the other's wouldn't let him join in?

Oh this is so expressive and sad. A wonderful image.

I do wonder what is on his mind. A beautiful face. Well captured!

@myautofocuslife I'm not really sure that she was really sad. She may have just been watching a couple of young gorillas that were playing a vigorous game of rough and tumble nearby. Maybe she was just remembering what it was like to be that age and have all that energy.

Sad but a wonderful photo. The zoo always leaves me with a little sorrow, especially the primates.
