Day twenty-eight of our photo journey …
When I am looking at the world through the viewfinder of my camera, I am notorious for being aware of absolutely nothing around me.
I am lost in a world of my own, as everything but thoughts of the scene in front of me slowly begin to fade away.
I was trying to focus in on this old barn, when something changed.
I became aware of a stillness all around me, and had this overwhelming, eerie feeling that someone was watching me.
“Lawd, please tell me that I haven’t trespassed where I don’t belong.”
I began to turn toward the direction I had wandered from, just as I felt the sensation of hot breath on my face.
At that same moment, my viewfinder suddenly turned black.
“chit! Chit! CHIT!”
“Oh goodness! What have I gotten myself into now?”
I was a split second from wetting my pants, before I realized that it was a black angus cow right in my face, and not the boogie man.
“I wonder if she knows how bad her breath is.”
At first I started laughing so hard that I was still in danger of wetting my britches, but one look in this gal’s face told me that she wasn’t any too happy to see me this close to her new calf.
No worries you
butt ugly gorgeous looking, pissed off friendly cow.
See! I’m leaving quietly now.
Did you know you have a fly on your nose?
Yeah, I didn’t reckon you cared.
Shhhh… It’s okay…
Good lawd! That was enough wandering for me today.
Maybe I will stick around town tomorrow.
