If only all hitchhikers were so cute and cuddly.

Great fun, well spotted!

Lee Spangler said...

What no seatbelt! You'll have to come out here for a visit. You have many friends here in Astoria, Seattle, Stanwood and Bend and we could show you and your family so much!

Love the look on his face. This is what we were talking about. This is why you carry the camera everywhere. Nice capture Jacob.

Lovely photo of a monkey on a Dodge. Does it stay there all the time or is it just resting?
Gorgeous flowers at the Sholom Park.

Aw poor baby, he looks so of weatherbeaten. I hope he doesn't fall. MB

That is a cute picture. I wonder how many times kids point to that and want to either get it or to stop the man before it falls off.

Patty has her 73rd birthday today. My wife for the past 54 years has a blog. If you have time, take a look and say hi. Old Lady Lincoln

Cute! I'd even let him in to sit beside me.

Very clever shot!

cute pic

Hilda said...

Heehee! Sweet! I just hope it was put there on purpose and not that a child left it there accidentally!

Memphis MOJO said...

Now there's one funky monkey -- interesting. I assume it was tied to the bumper?

Cezar and Léia said...

I want one!
Just adorable!
Léia :)

I was thinking - "there aren't any of those any more" as I was scrolling down. what a delightful post - I like the use of blurring to focus on the subject.

Lois said...

That's cute Jacob!

jusdealem said...

Very cute! Much better than a typical bumper sticker!

Dan J. said...

I love the humor in this pic. Funky effects.... great smile.
As always.... a lot of fun :-)

Daryl said...

Wonderfully done

Jarart said...

Aw, how cute! We need one of those on our Dodge truck bumper. Oh, hubby says no.

B SQUARED said...

He gives hitchhikers a good name.

Frank said...

How did Mr. Monkey get there. I've been looking for him for ages. (He looks well-loved.)

Sean said...

Cool shot!!

cieldequimper said...

MDR! :-)))

Jacob said...

@ Ciel - What is MDR?

Jacob said...

@ Frank - I could say he climbed up there when the truck was at a traffic light, but that would not be true...I imagine he was a bad monkey and the driver made him ride on the bumper until he learned how to behave!

I bet this little fella could tell us lots of stories, well, if he could talk. (; Cute catch!

tapirgal said...

This time I like the Photoshopping :) The focal point stands out (or sits, perhaps) very nicely.

Paula said...

Well, I hope he's safe, I hate to think he could take a tumble. Love the soft focus.

JM said...

Very funny! :-)
