BON (Blanco Orejinegro)

Bos taurus


Blanco Oreginegro cattle is one of the greatest herd of tropical-adapted Colombian criollo cattle. Bred in several pure and crossbred nuclei at the coffee plantations areas of Colombia. They are hardy, disease resistant, very fertile and maternal, docile white cows with black ears. Blanco Orejinegro means "white with black ears".


They are my favorites, they are really docile. This is a scanned picture I took with my 35mm in 2008.

Oh congratulations!! It is very scary doing photography for a bride hahaha :P That lion spotting is a perfect moment to capture, such a fleeting moment. Do you have a flickr or website? I'd love to see some more photography!

I just had my first wedding last saturday! And yes, is reallyy stressful. I mean you can't ruin it, its like the biggest day a girl has been waiting for, and if you don't do it good its kinda like a sin haha. But it also happens with animals. Remember my lion spotting? (first picture) She just posed to me, two seconds later she changed position.

Cartier-Bresson is a wonderful photographer with a lot of wisdom :) I too understand the 'decisive moment'--if you ever photograph anyone's wedding.. the whole thing is a decisive moment!! kind of stressful hehe

Thank you Tim! This was the first time I understand the decisive moment of Cartier-Bresson... Two more seconds and I probably couldn't have the same simetry.
