Last September I visited a group of locals to discuss Herd Immunity so today I went back to a different group to see how they felt about it. They didn’t seem to care or even entertain the idea but everyone was full of other advice.
They all felt that I should shoot wide and we argued about it for a few minutes while I shot at f/4. Finally I reluctantly switched to f/2.8. After viewing all the shots it was more about composition that aperture but this one is my favorite.
When I was finished she asked me about cow tipping which confused me but it turned out that she wanted a tip. So I thought for a second and asked her if cows have Buddha nature. She said Mu and we called it a day.

I was reading an article on the CNBC website where Dr. Fauci said: “If the U.S. allowed the coronavirus to spread unchecked in an attempt to try to achieve so-called herd immunity, the death toll would be enormous.”
This didn’t sound particularly good to me and I wondered how other residents felt about this. I found a herd and asked ten locals for their opinions. The first eight thought it was a ridiculous idea.
The ninth had a terrible cough and the others kept their social distance. After a few minutes this one, possibly the leader of the pack stood and stared at me. Her neighbor kept hitting her in the face with her tail to help get the flies off.
After a brief staring contest (which I won) I asked: “Well what do you think?” She thought about the question for a second and was about to answer when she got hit in the face again. Then she said: “Just shoot me now.” So I did.
“If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.” Dalai Lama XIV
When you realize that by changing your perspective, big things can be seen as little things, it becomes much harder to worry about anything.
