Holy cow! They're here!

650Here they are, the colorful cows in the very heart of the business centre and seem to be neglected by people. I'm sure kids will love to see them but they don't have a lot to deal with in the business district, right? I wonder who picked the venue...anywaz, this is the Cow Parade, a charity art exhibition touring a number of cities, and this collection showing in HK originates from Prague.

No Cow Parades in Singapore yet. But we have similar cows, icons of the restaurant called Marche.

I love these cows. When I was attending school in Chicago about 10 years ago they were all over the place, in parks, peering out of windows, up high on the sides of buildings. They added such spirit to the already spirited town of Chicago - and I hope they do the same in Hong Kong.

Here we don't have those parades lamentably. Here, some clubs organize parades about spring, my city is called the capital of spring, strange title isn't it?
You Lisi and your wonderful pics, I love them!!

Greetings from Perú

Thanks Lisi for dropping in a link to BA blog. It was funny to look back at my first photo blog ;) Nonetheless, I like the yello cow a lot, more flashy than the green one in the background. Nice shot.

I love how the fire red and yellow one seems to be chasing that guy across the walkway!

I think we had them in sydney, but a long timebefore I was doing photoblogs.

They're so much fun - loved seeing them all over Paris.

We had something similar where I live but instead of cows we had polar bears. They were a little cheezy for my tastes but lots of families enjoyed them.

HI, thanks for the footprints. I was quite surprised to find the Cow Parade here and without much publicity, but I think it's good that HK is part of this art charity event. The yellow cow does look very flashy, especially under bright sunshine when I shot this photo.
