Cow Pasture

Portland's a pretty good size small city(how's that for an oxymoron?), but all around the outskirts you can catch rural scenes like this. On Westbrook Street, on my way into the city, I captured this 'field of dreams', at least for this bovine. I pass it quite often, and there is usually a 100 head or so of cattle on both sides of the road. In the spring, during calving season, it's always fun to see the 'babies' struggling to find their way, running this way and that. This reminds me, anytime is a good time, in this hustle and bustle world, to stop and 'smell the cow pasture'. This intense jolt will bring you back to reality, in most cases! I'll go another route away from reality for a few hours today, taking in the Maine State Music Theater's hilarious production, "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels".


  1. Hope it's a 'moo'ving experience. Have fun.

  2. Every city needs a few cows around it to keep in touch with farms that feed them! Nice cow.

  3. Great looking cow. Thanks! I needed that!

    You have captured the essense of cowdom. He has an athletic body, great eyes and ears and the owner is fattening him up for the next phase of his life. His surroundings appear to be any cows dream, plenty of green grass to eat, room to roam, and the fields seem to be alive with the sound of music.

  5. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a
    great job with this. In addition, the blog loads
    very fast for me on Safari. Superb Blog!

  6. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who was conducting a little
    research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch because I
    stumbled upon it for him... lol. So let me reword this.

    ... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to talk about this matter here on your website.
