An elephant watching a temple entrance in Pondicherry.
Despite his elegant make up a little tear run out of his left eye.
Not a good job for an elephant!

Ciao Livia, bel primo piano al bestione con le tipiche decorazioni Indiane.
Una foto minimalistica per colori e luci e di grand eeffetto.

sono impressionato....un taglio perfetto con un po di spazio alla sinistra e un ritratto quasi umano.. e se vado indietro due passi, vedo un squadro astratto moderno.
Per me e´ una delle migliori da te ! Bellissima !
ciao, complimenti, Christian

nice closeup shot of elephant and your emotional note thanks for sharing.

nice one. usual for an elephant to have a secretion like that, the biologists will tell you :)
i wd like to put some imagination into the work it is doing for humanity rather than roaming freely in wilderness, that is making it to cry.

Livia, what an impressive shot!
the head decoration and skin depigmentation make this photo look very "stylish", but then something strikes: this is its eye. Elephants have so impressive eyes! the "tears" is fine for me (as for biologist:-)), but the impression, the look... How deep it is!
Ohh, I can talk about how wonderful elephants are forever...
Thank you, Livia.

Hi my friend Livia
Great detail you captured here, a little tear run out of his left eye.
Excellent details and well framed.
All the best

Ciao Livia, povero elefantino, ...sembra veramente triste... o forse è solo stress... :o)
ottimo il taglio e la composizione, complimenti!!

Hi Livia, this is an interesting close-up view of an elephant's eye. It looks almost human. Good cropping eliminated unnecessary detail to focus on your subject. Perhaps the light could have been better - the sun seems to catch the other side of its head. But good work anyway, I like it! Regards,

(This time in English : you still have photos dating from 2002 that you can show us ! Amazing, I wonder how many more are still hidden in your computer...
It's a moving detail, I like the idea and the framing.
Nice sad (and intelligent) eye !

I have read the remark about it being normal for elephants to have these secretions...so ok. Still, I would much prefer for them to be able to be free instead of serving mankind...often not treated with care and respect...
This is one of your most beautiful ones I do find, simply beautiful, great crop, colors and light and sensitive note.
