Point and click...

Point and click...
...for the monkey business! In 2010 I first time participated onto online photography group where the goal was to take and upload one picture per every day during a year. Because one very likely desperately needs to find out some subjects to photograph, I spent almost every Saturday on shooting soft toys, and used them to practice home studio photography and editing.

If you point your mouse over the picture, you will see there notes of the same image, and if you click on one of those note images, you will get some of the old monkey business pictures that I have uploaded here on Ipernity.

With this picture I also participate to The Sunday Challenge of "advertisement posters". I used notes for deliberate annoyance. This is kind of a private joke of mine to illustrate how Web advertisements are nowadays "polluting" almost every Web site. All kinds of pop-up notices are flashing all over the page when we open one. So, this is kind of SPAM advertising my own photography.

Heidiho, Don Sutherland, Wierd Folkersma, Annemarie and 11 other people have particularly liked this photo

I hate that pop-up stuff. You block them and they only find some other devious ways of getting you. That's the worst part of the internet for me.

Nice concept, though!! :-)

Thank you everyone for the comments and favorites =) I corrected the caption a little. And what comes to notes I used, they seem to be even too annoying, and people clearly did not want to click on any of them =D Well, kind of pity because you then missed those other pictures of mine, but on the other hand, I managed to make these pop-up notices super annoying =P

Thanks Wertti =) Every now and then I consider to continue it again... maybe when winter comes and it is just way too dark and dull outside.
