One of my favorite things about visiting the Aran Islands in Ireland and staying for two weeks on Inishmoor, the largest island, was 100 million percent the animals all around me. I love animals, just because, and since I’ve had my fancy-schmancy DSLR camera I’ve also had a blast photographing animals as well. They’re a challenge. And they’re kinda cute, too. The perfect combination.
I’ve also never seen so many different colored cows on one tiny island in my entire life. It was pure aesthetic bliss, they contrasted so strongly with the bright green landscape and grey rock walls all around them. Perfection. Aside from just the cows, I saw horses, chickens, cats, dogs, donkeys, mules, horses… when it comes to farm animals, you name it and it was there. And taking pictures of it was so awesome, I had to make a photoessay. And then captions of what these animals were thinking at the time. I’m a little strange and I know it, it’s fine, continue on now!
“I’ve never had my photograph taken while I’m eating, this is new.”
“I think someone might be there but whatever, I’m too cool to care.”
“WHO ARE YOU?” Cow behind him: “WHO IS SHE?”
“If you don’t finish this picture in the next ten seconds, I’m moving.”
“Love me. Pet me. Where is the food?”
“What, you think you’re the first person to take pictures of me? Hah! I’m hot shit. Everyone does it.”
“I’m a seal and I don’t give a fuck.”
“Thanks for not making me get up for that shot.”
“You should see me when I’m showered, you know. I’m gorgeous.”
“Come any closer to me and I’ll… move away.”
“Indeed, I’m a horse with a mustache. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
“Take one step closer to my baby and I’ll ram you with my head, ya jerk.”
“My house. My car. And you’re one step away from trespassing.”
“Humans. So predictable.”
And the grand finale….
Which animal is your favorite? Are you also obsessed with photographing animals or other weird things?
