Today we are neighbours on the site, and even in our thoughts. ;-)
How nice of you to dig out this photo from your archive. Here the nandi is as black as I remember it. Maybe the WS photo shows more of it, and its cultural context, but the monkey is so well placed in the foreground and also tells us of the natural environment on the hillside. I don't remember what photos I have from this place, but in any case it's much more complicated to retrieve my old scans.

The monkey and the Nandi together exemplify India and its culture. Excellent capture, well framed with very good colours and clarity.

Une très belle composition ressortie de tes archives qui doivent être très volumineuses tellement tu as voyagé partout dans le monde. Le moment est très beau ainsi que le singe.

The temple is the most what I know it of the three picture.
But your main picture with the monkey is a nice picture.
Light and colours are pleasant.
Sharpness and clarity of the pictures
Very well done, TFS.

Yes, this is the black nandi of Chamundi Hill.
So in 2004 it was still black. I don't have an idea when it has been cleaned ... Perhaps they do it regularly now ...
There's another difference with the nandi of today. It seemed to have real eyes in 2004.
Very funny with the monkey on the foreground. It seems to have seen something of great importance. Maybe one of the visitors is eating something :)
Very nice of you and also interesting to make this comparison with my picture.
Best regards, Paul

A different and special composition, with this contrast between the great sculpture of the Nandi bull and that monkey up on its pedestal.
Magnificent color, which gives great strength to the image.
Very good brightness and perfect sharpness.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

I’ve seen Paul’s photo as well and the difference between before and after the cleaning is stunning, it looks almost as new now. This is a great photo too, a good close-up and the inclusion of the monkey in the foreground is superb as well.

Interesting view with sculpture and monkey, a good timing to take the view, good contrast between the virtual and the real animal, tfs.

Bonjour, chère Mago,
Cette prise de vue n'a rien perdu de son charme. Et il toujours intéressant de pouvoir comparer différentes époques.
j'aime beaucoup la présence du singe qui semble assurer la garde de cette sculpture géante.

The monkey and the weathered old statue of a cow go well together. Excellent use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the monkey. Superb graphism of the dark stone sculpture against the lighter sky. Tfs!

It is nice to compare the then (your photo) and the now (Paul's photo) views of this grand statue. I am happy to see the transformation.

Catching up on your gallery, I find this delightful photo which reminds me of my trip to India some years ago ! I didn't go to Mysore, but I saw many statues of Nandi and many monkeys. Your capture is excellent with the brighter-coloured monkey sitting by the dark bull. So typical.
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.
