Oh Bull!

“There comes a time in the affairs of man when he must take the bull by the tail and face the situation.” W. C. Fields

I met this big fellow, hiking out at night from a lake. Only a bit of moonlight, first clued me in to him standing nearby and eating. Not that harrowing, in that I fence line separated us and I didn’t use a flash. But, that was/is naive comfort no doubt.

Ranch Life: What does this mean?

I came across these two poles some fifteen feet or more in the air with strands of barbed wire strung across the from pole to pole and wedged in between the strands of wire was a large bone (femur?). Now I have no idea what that signifies. Maybe nothing but good humor or something more obvious to those that are around the ranch life. I took a photograph and planned to research the meaning. I have come up with zip, zero, nada.

Maybe it is a good luck gesture…or to ward off bad juju gesture…or a sign of the cattle and ranch life…or some one has a big appetite. Maybe someday some one will comment here and let us know. Probably obvious, but not to me.

OK: Update….I contacted some land owners near this interesting landmark and received this explanation for the large bone suspended between posts on barbed wire: some time ago the owners of the land placed the large bone up above as a humorous item to promote conversation and suggest the cattle rancher’s life out West. So, kind of artistic and tongue in cheek.

The Bull…A Photograph in the Dark

I was recently traveling on a back road on the East side of Mt. Hood. It was about dark and the silhouette of the mountain against the fading light seemed to have possibilities for a photograph. I took a few shots. As I turned to enter the rig next to a fence line, I sensed movement beside me. I looked but could not gain my depth perception at first. When I did, a large, dark face stared at me. The passive face stayed that way as I snapped a shot. I messed with the exposure so you could enjoy the big guy’s head.

The shot of Mt. Hood on the East side. The shot didn’t turn out as I had envisioned.

The Bull chewing his grass. Not the best shot but still the chance meeting over a fence line at last light was ‘fun’. Being a city boy who escapes to the country for sanity, I am not familiar or at ease around car size critters.
