and by that I mean…this shoot is one of those lovely mysteries. The place I came across it offered no background info or credits. Hence, I am not able to either. I think it is just spellbinding though. So serene….
We are those that stand and look out at the sea…yurning…as if for a lover. Feeling so unsatisfied to stay within the boundaries of this skin. So overwhelmed by the immense expanse of rolling, beckoning, seducing depth. Our lovers breath is sweet and salty. It’s beauty, immeasurable. It’s love, boundless.
We stand at the edge of the sea and ache to be one; to sink beneath the waves. To become boundless love…
This extraordinary scene took place recently at the Sanaga-Yong Chimpanzee Rescue Center in Cameroon, West Africa.
When a chimp called Dorothy, who was in her late 40s, died of heart failure, her fellow apes seemed to be stricken by sorrow.
As they wrapped their arms around each other in a gesture of solidarity, Dorothy’s female keeper gently settled her into the wheelbarrow which carried her to her final resting place – not before giving this much-loved inhabitant of the centre a final affectionate stroke on the forehead.
