When I saw that today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is Pleased, a little smile came to my face, as I a bit pleased with an idea that crossed my mind.
The idea was to put a smile on your faces with a bit of silliness. And who knows more about creating a silly scene than a bunch of cows trying to get their picture taken?
The source of this image is a bit amusing, as I actually was trying to get a landscape shot of the farm, where these cows resided. However, curiosity got the better of these wonderful bovines, which brought them over, just in case I had some food for them.
During my (then) rather lengthy daily commute, I always opted for the scenic route, which, albeit 10-15 minutes longer, was much more relaxing than using the highways. And it had the added benefit of providing some interesting scenery to enjoy!
One of the points of interest is a set of farms near the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border, one of which literally had a road right through the property of the farm. This did make for slower travel and the occasional scent of true farm life, such as organic fertilization; from time to time, I would stop here and capture something or other.
On this fine day in April, I wanted to get a bit of a wider image of the cows feeding in the very New England farmland (read: large rocks intersperse grass and mud). However, the cows had a completely different idea!
As soon as the cows saw that I had pulled over, they decided to come over and find out what I was up to…after all, there may have been food involved! So rather than getting the wide shot, I got this wonderful close-up of the cows vying for attention.
