Almost every time I visit my local library, I walk by a dentist’s office and can’t help but stare at what I see on the inside wall, right by the door. I find it a little awkward to go inside and ask the receptionist if I can take a picture of the pictures frames for my daily blog. Would you look at me funny if I made this request? I also tried to take pictures through the office’s glass door but the glare always delivered poor quality photos.
But today I saw my window of opportunity and I seized the moment. It was a very hot day in San Diego, and very humid as we rarely see it here, and the dentist’s office door was… open! I stopped the kids in their tracks – something hard to do where they’re trekking to reach the library’s front door in search of new books – and explained I had to make a permanent record of this cow and its friends. I present you with a whole barnyard of round-bodied animals on skinny legs:
Notice how the pig and the cow are at hanging out next to each other. I love the pig pattern, by the way, very panda like. Now I have absolutely no idea where these frames come from but I noticed the cow looks familiar to the cow I saw on stove burners recently, yet not quite the same. I also have no idea why this dentist would have pictures of farm animals on his (her?) office wall. If you have a theory, I’d love to hear it. Are they supposed to have a soothing effect on dental patients?
Overall I feel it’s my lucky day since I’ve been trying to capture this cow sighting for months. If I had enough motivation in me, I’d go buy a lottery ticket to seal the deal but it’s still too damn hot and sticky to enjoy an evening stroll.
