OH NO IT'S RAINING MONKEYS by CorazondeDios OH NO IT'S RAINING MONKEYS by CorazondeDios
OH NO! IT'S RAINING MONKEYS!



This shot is made from a slide I took in 1970 of my sock monkey who accompanied me on a hike up Twin Sisters Mountain in Colorado,
[link]
and a shot I took with a digital camera some 36 years later, out of our van window as we sped by the Dallas skyline on our way home from summer camp a few years back. I have not posted the Dallas shot anywhere online, its on my hard drive.

Love it! My immediate association when I glanced at this was the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz. But yours are a lot more whimsical.

The only time I was in Dallas it rained hard and had lighting that was mind-boggling. There could have been monkeys in that mix. Who would know?

Dallas has THE most kick ass thunderstorms EVER! The lightning infests the sky constantly, with writhing megabolts of death. It is truly awesome to drive into Dallas from Oklahoma during one of the megastorms!!!

I had a sock monkey when I was a kid! I saw this and it brought the memory back. Thank you for that!

The blue building? I personally call that one "The Monument". Flour City did that one and I wish I'd been there when they did it. I'd have loved to work on it!
Love,
Anj
