Shadow Shot Sunday 2 - Jaipur Cows Resting in the Shade - February 19, 2012

A beloved Indian friend and fellow blogger gets a bit annoyed at me when I
post pictures of cows or elephants and the like.  He tells me I am not showing
the true beauty of India and I am giving people a distorted view and feeding
in to stereotypes.  Well, I have to disagree with him.  I absolutely love India
and will post pictures of all that I see, including the amazing temples and
their ancient history, the interesting festival, the beautiful faces of the
people, the interesting modes of transportation, AND the animals.  I, for
one, love the cows - their sweet gentle faces and so I take many pictures of
them.  I guess, having spent several years of my childhood on a farm, I am
drawn to these creatures.

So, dear blogging friend, forgive me, but, for two days in a row, my post
is about cows.  I post it with love...of India, its beauty and its creatures, and
of you.



I am participating in Shadow Shot Sunday 2 - post your shadow shot and join
in the fun!
