Mooooo… Appreciating Cows

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

The first time I remember seeing a cow was in the Chicago Lincoln Park zoo in the farm animal section.  Of course from the time we are little we learn the sounds animals make and where mild comes from.  I am just not the type to have a “relationship” with an animal… as cute as people think they are… I just don’t relate.  But, I love taking photos of interesting creatures.  The big dark eyes with long lashes on cows just seem so expressive.  Grabbing my camera on Friday, I drove up to Snohomish County with a girlfriend and she drove by several farms with aging pastel barns and fields of cows quietly peacefully hanging out.  Then I come to find out it is actually “National Cow Appreciation Day” and I was there to photograph these beautiful animals!
