HUMOR IN SYNCHRONICITY
Category: Spontaneous Moments

Does this image reminds you of the Theory of Evolution? Mount Popa is a sacred volcano in Bagan, Myanmar. I was walking down from the summit when I noticed this gentleman waiting for his family. A monkey suddenly joined him, calmly sitting in the same position. Their expressions made everyone laugh, including the gentleman’s family. I have a large print at home and friends often asked me if this is a painting. You can see the texture and fine details including the graffiti, and more importantly, feel the human connection with the monkey. It brings a smile to everyone who sees this image.
