i agree, there isn't an understanding of 'freedom' as we understand, but you can see the longing for release. I agree with your point completely, and yes, I agree with their care, but yeah, just breaks your heart when you see something like that.

Really though, I see not much difference here than a house cat, stuck in a 9th floor apartment. These pets will never see or taste the great outdoors, never climb a tree or roll in fresh grass. It's really heartbreaking

Thank you for sharing and you have an eye for saying something with just one photograph.

Day after endless day I stare into existance. this barrier blocking me from that which I most desire. I have what I need, and only want for what I crave. Freedom.

I took this photo in Cape Town (Sea Point Aquarium) last month & it truly touched my soul. Everytime i look at it, it saddens me. I wanted to share it cos I am sure others will feel the same as i do.
This lonely guy just standing there looking outside the window. One could feel on the inside how it longs to be out there, free. For many it is, or will be just a photo of a penguin. Guess cause i saw this guy staring at the window for minutes on end, it got to me. I eventually just moved along. As i walked away i kept looking back, and it kept staring at freedom, while i was walking out to freedom.
These animals get fed very well & they are looked after extremely well in all other aspects. Nonetheless, this one got inside my soul.
