His Ziggy Stardust obsession went a bit too far.

"Do you realize that because of you this city is being overrun by baboons?" "Well, isn't that the fault of the voters?"

First, that quote is from Naked Gun 2 1/2: the Smell of Fear. And I won’t go into the baboon/mandrill debate. I just thought of the quote

OK, I shot this indoors at Potter Park Zoo, and in kind of low light. When I was editing it in Photoshop, I knew I wanted to darken the features and make the colors jump out a bit more.

I loved the colors on the face and wanted them to be the main focus.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with it, but I may mess around with it again.  What do you think?
