Default Out of the shadows...

There are very many of them around. Around us. Some are out in the open, obvious.

Others are well concealed. Sure way to know thier presence is when they open their mouths.

No mistaking them. They too serve a purpose. Some of them believe they serve a very high

purpose.


I thought about the categories to place them in..Portraits, Wildlife, Art, but settled for this

forum. Please feel free to move it to any appropriate forum, where they fit. Amongst their kind.

Thank you.

Yes indeed, some of them even run countries.

Joking aside, I like this portrait. Lovely animal. I would opt for putting it in the portraits or still photo (pun intended).

Must be a real heavy burden to bear. So many countries. continents, languages; different colors

too!

p.s if moved to portraits give me a few seconds to make some minor correvtions there!!

Fahim,

Allegories aside, this a colorful picture. It's impressive that folk would decorate the humble donkey! Shows its more important than one might give credit, given its name!

I would never look down on a donkey. If a donkey accepts you as friend - he will do a lot for you!
I think that the decoration is also linked to the appreciation by the owners.

Thanks for showing.

Best regards,
Michael
