The statue is so life like !

Both the guard and the elephant have such a majestic air about them .

Great pic as usual Indrani .

He does indeed appear to be frozen. (like your title) I wonder how they an stand so still for so long. I'd faint for certain!

Anya said...

The elephant and the guard are both
~ emotionless ~
Would he start laughing when we tickled him ;)

Laura Hegfield said...

I think it would be fun to see the guard sitting on top of the elephant!

Robin said...

I love the elephant - in that size it looks like a cute little baby.

As a real fidgeter myself I've always wondered too how those guards stand so still. I wouldn't last three minutes in that job!

Beth F said...

I love how the elephant and the guard seem to have the same straight and determined look. Nice catch.

Laura@SouthernPirates said...

i wonder how you can stand this still too..great photo

Robyn Jones said...

It's hard to tell whether the guy is a statue or real...Great photo! Thanks for sharing!

The Twitterer said...

"don't move, or i'll jump," says the elephant.

"ssshhh.... quit talking, someone's taking a picture. just pose," replied the guy.

happy WW!

Alvis said...

Nice shot. I like the comparison between the statue and the person who looks as still as a statue.

I did a Project 365 last year. I'll be checking back with you.

Alvis said...

Oops! Not a Project 365, I see. You are just numbering your Wordless Wednesdays. Still, I'll be coming back. :)

Tarun Mitra said...

what about making him inhale some black pepper :P :D

The Ranting Mommy said...

WOW! Great narrative shot. Do you know what the meaning of the box he is standing on is?

Indrani said...

Thanks for the lovely comments.

I have no idea what the red box is for.

Carver said...

What a great shot. The elephant and the man both posed and still as statues. The elephant looks so real I did a double take. The guard almost looks like a statue.

Kate said...

Hi;
Found you through Wordless Wed. What a great photo! Thailand is tops on my list of places I'd like to see...

Pat said...

It must be hard to stand still for so long. Nice composition in your photo!

M. Soga said...

This photo says so much with it's motionless subjects. Very majestic.

Titanium said...

There is silence and stillness here, almost like Earth waiting to take a breath.

Mariposa said...

The guard is trained to stand that way whole day,I suppose. The elephant is cute. Nice photo! Mariposa's WW

Sandy said...

I totally agree with Shubd!

tigerfish said...

Shrinidhi Hande said...

Looks royal! The magic of the picture also lies in the angle at which you shot it... A perfect scene for Wordless Wednesday!
