Gorilla story

Email from cousin Vicki in response to my post of 11/25/11

Hi Victor.  Your blog reminded me of this picture.  I’ve attached it and hope you can get it.  My friend Greg worked at the Bronx Zoo for a few years and he worked with the silverbacks.  After being gone for 5 years he returned to take his daughter to the zoo.  At the exhibition she stood by the glass to see the gorillas.  One of the silverbacks, Julia no less,  recognized him and came to the glass to see him.  I love this shot because it looks like both his girls are standing together looking at him.
Hope this works.
What a story! I never thought that there could be such a connection. Six degrees of separation.

    For one moment I thought they were side by side. Great capture and lovely story.

  2. I too thought they were standing together. What an illusion!
