PT Challenge 178: SOFT

Many thanks to Marianne for hosting this week's challenge. A great theme, with loads of possibilities!! Here are my contributions:

1) The soft glow of a candle: Glow I

2) The soft-eyed look of bliss on this Barbary Macaque's face as it is groomed by it's mate:

Barbary Macaque 2

3) A soft bud, waiting to open: Bud 2

  1. Love the way you have caught the reflection of the candle in the wax. I think the ape is in Nirvana somewhere. You captured the look in his eyes perfectly. The bud looks like it will burst open any minute. 3 great shots.

    1. Thanks Pat. I took a series of shots of the Macaque while he was being groomed by his mate. In the next shot after this one, he'd dozed off. LOL.

  2. I do like your candle light shot.
    Soft-eyed fellow with very soft fluffy hair too.
    The bud is my favorite.

  3. Very nice, Mitch, especially the candle shot, something mystical about it.

    sorry for being so late with commenting, started off and then the power went, we have had stormy weather all day. Got 45mm of rain in 30 minutes, the hail yesterday was terrible too, my poor garden, all the delicate lettuce is ripped, soooo not a happy chappy.

    1. Thanks Marianne :-)) The candle one was the first one I thought of for the theme. Took a while to hunt it down though, I'd forgotten which folder I'd filed it in!!! LOL.

      Sounds like your rainstorms are even worse than mine!!
