  1. Sandra Knauf says:

    What a majestic animal! That is one of the most amazing portraits I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Nancy Wilsted says:

    Such dignity. The portrait imbues the reverence which this animal deserves.

  3. Betty Armstrong says:

    Myron Wood is one of the unsung heroes of Colo Springs. He has left such a photographic legacy for the city. I wonder if he has received any official recognition for his talent and contribution. I Iove his book O’Keefe At Abiquiu which was published after his death. Wood took photos of the artist over a period of 2 1/2yrs at her home in NM.
    PS The gorilla is truly majestic!
