I LOVE Cows - 2004 Before DSLR


In 2004 with my trusty little Kodak Point and shoot 3.1 mp I begged this long horn to look at me... There isn't she beautiful? Wish I had the DSLR and Long Lens....



Mama Brahma and Baby Brahma... Awwwww  We used to pass them on the way to church but now Progress and miles of 6 lane highway has moved them far away from my camera.

Those horns look menacing but the baby is cute.

A lovely baby but I wouldn't want to get too near the mother with her instinct to protect her young one.

The camera was 3.1 megapixels? REALLY?? I'm surprised as the photos look very good to me.

Love those "olden" photos. We were having brunch at a restaurant in Chicago on Sunday. There were three youngish men and a baby sitting at the next table. One man pulled out a polaroid camera and started snapping. I asked how old the camera was. He said "from the 1960s". I asked if he could still get film and he said the film he had was also from the 1960s. Wow!

Best,
Bonnie

i love cows too.
I currently only have a Kodak point and shoot and my cell phone camera~ so that is what I have been working with since staring my blog all this time. I have gotten pretty skilled macro by cell phone lol, I look forward so much to having the money to upgrade to a good camera by Spring.

George said...

Your point-and-shoot camera did a good job of capturing these photos.

I always see such great pictures as we pass things on the freeway...no place to stop and take the photo...so frustrating.
Love the cattle.
A fellow blogger Bev is flying in from Florida this morning to spend a week with us.
I'm so excited to see her. The last time we were together was when I met her in Nashville for a weekend with the Christian singer Sandi Patty. That was almost 2 years ago.
Blogging does make true friends.

I live in Cheshire home of the cheese and am surrounded by dairy farms and hundreds of cows.. wonderful beasts.

Susannah said...

Never mind looking at all the cattle around here. We had Holsteins on our farm. Good pics, Sandra!

DawnTreader said...

Never seen any cows with horns that long here. I don't think we have them in Sweden... I'm hardly an expert on cattle, though!

The pictures are wonderful. I love cows. My grandpa always said he wanted to come back as a cow so I always thinks of him when I see them.

oh I love cows. This is a real Beaut and her wee one. Perfect take.

Oh the goverment has to spoil it don't they.

My little deer who I had up in my picture last week standing looking at my hubby wit the car.
Deary deer was killed going across the hyway in the night. My neighbor infromed me.

I look out the back and not see him. How sad. We miss his friendly walk up's to my hubby.

Ginny said...

The Brahman ones look like they have anorexia,they are so thin. Maybe that is the way they are supposed to look. They are all posing for you. Cows are very curious!

Rebecca said...

I actually saw longhorn cows in PA, very unusual. I felt like I was in Texas.

Eva Ason said...

I love these cows with their long horns.

Ann said...

We recently had dinner at Longhorn, I hope it wasn't any of this ones relatives that we dined with...lol
I always enjoy seeing the cows

Barb. I am using 8.o mega pixels. I like it as I can slide it in my pocket or a small purse or just take the carrier for it. Not having to take a big camera. My good pointof this camera is. I got the Easy Share dock for it.It was a cost five years ago. So when I am out for the day like Yesterday picture taking for hours. I just load my camera on the Kodak dock when I got home.To recharge. Plus I never ran out of batteries or more disk space to take with me..

I have thought to get another camera but I am so spoiled with not having to worry about running out so I am stuck with not doing anymore pictures. Other wise being in a jam..What camera do you have now?

Did you ever have the dock? Then you would know what I mean. You get spoiled.

I used to have where you had the little window above to see on the camera.

Then now. It is a guessing game to really see with out it when the sun is too bright.

They say now adays. it is nil. They have done away with it.So guessing game.

So I think. Am I best to change or keep my little treasure.

I just feel having a better zoom would help.As you know Kodak zoom is only so far.

Suggestions or you Barb? Sorry I have taken your blog space.

Great pictures.

Mersad said...

Adorable images. When you shoot in the golden hour, I think you could even use a camera obscura and get great and amazing results!

photowannabe said...

Hi Sandra, you are so correct. The Bev is one and the same.
She just arrived and we had lunch/supper and are just relaxing. Bible Study meets at our home tonight.

Chatty Crone said...

The photos look good to me too. I do love cows - but not their slobbery mouths! lol

Gail said...

Beautiful.

So its the photographer and not the tools...great work.

Michaele said...

I love it when you dig in your archives and get us remembering-when.

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, that is one very cute calf. Looks like mama is keeping a close eye on you and her baby.

Back then most of us were using the point and shoot digital type camera. I think I still had my little 1.5 mp.

Betsy Adams said...

I love the way they are looking at the lady with the camera!!!!! ha
Hugs,
Betsy

magscorner said...

Nice shots of the cows sweet Sandra. No matter the camera you use you always take super pictures! Hugs

I always think 'What if I had had digital when I was young?' It is almost depressing to think about it.
