Roll 14: Oreo Cows

There is a ranch near our house that has “Oreo Cows.”   Of course, this is not their real name but it is what my family calls them every time we drive by the pastures of black and white cattle.   I believe the technical breed name is “Belted Galloway” but that is totally boring when they look like Oreo cookies to me and my five year old son.   You be the judge …

I was actually trying to get a good shot of a newborn calf in the field but they must have figured out that a car stopped on the side of the road means people with cameras so this herd wanted nothing to do with me.  I even tried going to the other side near the interstate.   Go figure, the cows didn’t want to be near the freeway, either.    But, I still managed to get a few interesting shots.   Oreo cows or not.

This is a test strip of road.   I have no idea what they test.   The signs have always puzzled me as I drove past at 80 mph.   Hmmmm.   That speed might be why I haven’t gotten a good look at them.

I love road signs.   What is so appealing about them?

This view should have more snow.   I love the spring weather but I’m still praying for snow.   I saw some hope in the weather forecast the other day.   Go ahead, East Coasters, send the snow back out West!

This roll of 35mm, Kodak ProFoto XL 100, was shot on my beloved Nikon FM2.   For more from my other cameras, please check out my blog at Gingerlea Photography.

  1. article is quite interesting and hopefully true happiness rays began to warm the hearts of us all, when we can share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama 🙂


  2. “Oreo Cows” is perfect description. Whenever I drove cross-country (too many times to count really), I would always ‘moooo’ whenever going by a field of cows. Heck even in town here I do that. Yes more snow out west would be good. I like the sign shot, great colors with the background mountains.
