Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! no! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right.)

Howe'er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)

haha haha haha.

A Mouse and an Elephant where walking over a wooden bridge.
Said the mouse to the Elephant "What are we loud stamping, right" ?
TFS dear friend.
Greetings from Jan

Namaste Manuj

Nice symmetry of the 2 elephants with good sharpness & wonderful color on the face of the one at right. Good shallow dof, & even a third elephant, in the distance. Tfs!

Nice work. Beautifully captured; good PP treatment to introduce the blur.

Hello Manuj,
Lovely long legs. What a wholesome scene, it looks wonderful to go for an elephant ride. The scene is well exposed and there is good color management. My best regards from Wash. D.C.

Hello Manuj.

Hello Manuj,
i like the song you wrote very much. It is quite funny and academic also.
The shot above is lovely. Real action and original. The elephant to us us is very hard to see, except in zoos.
Well composed with great sharpness and clarity.

Hi Manuj,
Legs don't come much bigger than these. A good contribution to the theme, good one.

hello dear manuj

how are you

surprized to see me here....
any way good shot with great sharpness

IMHO, blur is good but next time take care... bcoz elephants are sharp where as grass and other object around them are blurred.. it looks unrealistic, also right arm of 'mahout' is burnt out.


Very sharp photo with a perfect POV to give a sferish story of the elephant and his passengers.

Hi Manuj,
What a superb picture for the theme.Well composed.TFS.

Hola Manuj,
magnífico disparo y escena,
simpatico tema y detalles...
buen encuadre, pov y dof.

Hello Manuj !

Fine ''tuning'' of these elephants. I like the composition here. The blurred background is perhaps a bit too obvious but I believe you did it on purpose to enhance the Legs theme.

I love the expressions of the ''pilots''.

Hello, there!
Wonderful posting, Manuj! Really well taken my friend! Superb details and touch of vibrant colors!
Congrats and tfs!
Best regards,

Hello Manuj,
Great capture of an Indian every da life.
Great quality.
Regards caesar

This is another beautiful picture of your. I did not know that they painted on the elephants, your people love to put colors everywhere, I just love the idea. Nice framing, good POV. TFS..

My regards, Susan
