How do you like our new logo at Friday My Town Shoot Out? Ginger and Mersad have been busy weaving their own sort of magic to give us a face lift. Hop over here to check it out.
It's not very often I barely have to think about what to post for FSO. The first words of the prompt were "A congested highway or waiting for the cows to move off the road," and my mind springs immediately to the day not long ago when there had been an accident out on the highway and the detour was very much the long way to town (both in distance and in time).
Livestock on the road is a much more common sight for me. This morning I was quite surprised to see the young bulls out on the road with no farmer in sight. They were in no hurry to move, enjoying their new found freedom. After I got past them, I chased them back in the direction from whence they had escaped, my good deed for the day.
One rainy day it was sheep being moved along the road.
Here on the farm, rush hour is the time before and after milking when the cows are moving to and from the milking shed. This is taken from my front deck.
I was at Barge Park a while back when there was a rush of young runners competing in the inter-school cross country. They were past me and away before I could life the camera.
We are looking to give FSO a new lease of life. Don't be shy if you'd like to take part, you only need a home town and a camera. I know I felt intimidated and visited for months before I dared contribute but there's no need to be shy. You will find some wonderful supportive people there and also some amazing photographers who are happy to share their knowledge. I can't begin to tell you how much I've learnt since I've been participating.
