Hooded Eyes

For some reason the chimps and gorillas bothered me the most seeing them in the Calgary zoo. Maybe because when I looked into thier eyes they seemed so sad or just resigned to living like they do. This fellow was sitting and just watching the huge amount of people milling around the enclosure but he looked right at me when I started taking his picture. His intent stare almost made me feel ashamed that I was even standing there looking at him in a zoo...it was an awful feeling. Every time I look at this one I wonder just what he was thinking. :(
