This series of photographs of primates living in captivity named ‘Behind Glass’ is by Atlanta-based photographer Anne Berry. From South Africa to Belgium she traveled the world to capture photos of apes and monkeys living in small zoos, in hopes of truly reflecting and capturing life on the other side of the glass/barrier. Most of the captive primates in Anne’s photographs look quite sad, but she insists her work is not to advocate against zoos. “I think zoos are doing a better and better job of keeping animals and replicating habitats that don’t exist in the wild anymore,” Berry said. “It’s not the best that you’d like, but it’s keeping species alive.”
The name ‘Behind Glass’ refers both to the glass or boundaries of an enclosure and to the glass of the camera lens. The somber mood of the photographs isn’t accidental either, she shoots them in black and white and uses a wide aperture on her 80mm lens. She does this as the black and white images feel both aged and emotional, each photo clearly showing the solitude of the animal. “I think it makes people have more empathy for them and stop and look at the picture. If they feel sadness and nostalgia, they might think about what’s happening and the challenges the animals face in the wild due to the increasing loss of their natural habitat,” she said.

President Obama was to be on his best behavior at the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy today. He almost passed muster, but was that a big wad of gum in his mouth during the solemn ceremony? Twitter seemed to think so.
Judge for yourself (via Weasel Zippers):
This time the president managed to offend the French as well.
What sparked that? This absurd defense of Hillary Clinton from Sen. Claire McCaskill:
Oh, of course! Evolving and stuff. Some suspect McCaskill is trying to “evolve” herself right into a job:
She couldn’t possibly have, could she? Ha! Just kidding. We couldn’t even type that with a straight face.
Bingo. And here is a key reason why McCaskill’s absurd spin is an utter fail:
Ding, ding, ding! Nice try, McCaskill. But no cigar. (Hello, Bill!)

Fox News’ Brit Hume is traveling through the United Kingdom and is hitting the links while there.
A bonny and braw Scot laddie!
Hume isn’t just hitting the links: He’s hitting the funnies, too. UK coverage of the birth of the royal baby tickled his funny bone.
And then he posted a photo of an awesome headline and cover from a British mag:
Keep the tweets coming, Mr. Hume. Scots wha hae!
