"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Never Trust A Monkey.

I've has just enough time to...   be cautious of a monkey.

Taken in the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali where monkeys dictates.

In the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali; monkeys are everywhere. And even where you do not see them, sneaking up on you. They fear no man nor beast for after all, they are the descendant of God. But godly creatures they are not. They have been away from their god Hanuman for too long and been near to man for longer still. They lost their noble ways and gain the wiles of human and that is not pretty. They traded their innocence for the intelligence of man not knowing that the soul was part of the bargain. So the monkeys there are there now are more man than beast and that is sad. So sad.

For now, they don’t warn you when you’re down in beautiful Bali “Never trust a man.” They warn you “Never trust a monkey.” And it is all man’s fault. For it was not a monkey’s nature to covet and steal till they saw it in the intelligence of man stealing from their neighbours.

Never trust a monkey!


  1. A 1000 Reasons
    I was in the Monkey Forest in Bali when I noticed this monkey ready to take advantage of this kind lady's broad shoulder. With a leap from the beast it was riding it landed on the lady who kindly tolerate the intrusion. I managed to catch the monkey in its act.

    Great in action shot,Thou and quite tragicomic !!!!!!!!!!
    I feel so sorry for their lost innocence and their inevitable corruption by the human beings.
    You competently dramatised the situation my friend and I have to admit that your theory does hold water ...

  2. Not content with having a shoulder to sit on, the curious monkey reach out its paw to grab the ladies's chain while she is posing for the camera. When you give it a shoulder, it wants your chain! Never trust a monkey whether the furry type or the ones that walk on two legs. :P

    LOL :D

    endearing moment.
