Ok, I will admit, I'm not an artist. But I have been blessed with knowing MANY artists in my life. Out of all the artists in the world, I can
honestly tell you there are two types that I can NOT stand, and it's because of their over-inflated ego's. Writers.......and photographers.
I understand photography isn't easy for many, and can be expensive to have the right gear. But the ego's of these people really make me want to
smash their cameras over their head. Not all, but many. The things they will claim ownership of is ridiculous.
Now yes, I get that the camera belonged to the guy, so he wants to claim ownership of the photo. I've also heard stories of a photographer using
someone elses camera to take a photo for the owner of the camera, finding that it was an extremely good shot, and trying to claim ownership of it all
because they were the ones who took it. In this case, the guy didn't take the photo, but because it's his camera, he wants to be paid for it.
In my personal opinion, I don't think they should have to take it down. I say this, because if the monkey didn't take the camera, he never would
have had that shot in the first place. It was his carelessness with his camera, that allowed the monkey to take the camera and take a selfie.
I do love the photo, it's like the monkey knew exactly what the camera was. XD
