Milking a "cow"

Posted by
Magda (Vancouver, Canada) on 7 October 2008 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

On the weekend I took my girls to an Apple Festival. They got to milk some "cows" - it was their favourite thing out of all other activities. It was so much fun to watch them "at work"! :)
It took me a long time to figure out how to put them into a collage so I could show you more photos at once but there it is! ;) Enjoy!

Thank you so much for taking your time to visit and comment on my photographs. It is greatly appreciated! :)

@Craig: Thank you! This was my first collage and I almost gave up because I couldn't figure out how to do it! Now, I will probably go "collage crazy"....! LOL

I love the vivid colors. Great shot of the milk squirting in the bucket on that last shot. Very fun! I think I need to find a farm like that for my kids too. For that matter, I would love to try milking a cow :)

@Marion: Thank you, Marion! You should, the kids of all ages seem to fully enjoy the farm life, especially when it doesn't involve the "real" work.... :)

Wonderful, Magda - I love the sequence of shots.
The collage/montage works well; they also work vertically w/three photos, as the center one shows up in the thumbnail view, but each of the three is shown 800 pixels wide. ;D

Try Googles Picassa 3,the Montages are easy there...Love watching children trying something new,their concentration is amazing .

7 Oct 2008 6:50pm

@Jeff: Thank you, Jeff! I tried Picassa2 and couldn't find the option to arrange my photos the way I wanted them to be..... I used Corel for this one. I will look at the Picassa3, for sure. :)

João Mourão from Amadora, Portugal

Spectacular images. The collage works perfectly and I remember when I did it for the first time in my granparents house. Only then the cows were real...

7 Oct 2008 10:16pm

@João Mourão: Thank you! I remember milking cows (for fun) at my grandparents' farm too... And I remember, like yesterday, how exciting this experience was. Much harder though than "milking" the glove! hehehe

Beautiful triptich. Now they use machines to milk the cows but it is great to know the old way to do it...

Shawna from Regina, Canada

wonderful triptych. I do not make collages very well. PS is a lot of work to do them in. I don't know any "secrets" on how to do one this well. Great job. I love the story it tells

8 Nov 2008 2:51am

@Shawna: Thank you! This one was my first attempt to making a triptych using Corel.... I was so happy to finally figure it out! ;)
