My personal 365 project.
I’ve always pitied cattle. While they generally look placid and unconcerned, their lives are spent penned in a field (if they’re lucky), eating the day away and blissfully unaware of the rather horrid fate which awaits them. They’re not cuddly, nor particularly cute. No one rides them (except under the rather cruel circumstances of rodeos), kids don’t clamor for them as pets, and they seem to have little enjoyment in their everyday life. Given all that, I didn’t think a standard shot would convey my feelings about their dismal lives. This is what I came up with to express the emotions I feel when I see cows.
