H.E.L.P.

Photographers are violent people.
First they frame you.
Then they shoot you.
Then they hang you on the wall.

Handsome cock! I love the quote. I tell our students here I want to line them up and shoot them--with my Canon. Terrible, aren't we?

@cutekitty @yorkshirekiwi @365anne @tibles @gigiflower @sarahlth Thanks so much! This guy was not happy with getting his photo taken. He thought I was paparazzi and had not gotten permission. It was a hoot n holler! Chickens and roosters roam all over and rule the roost in Old Fair Oaks!

@alophoto I live in Carmichael, on the border of Fair Oaks! My dentist is in Old Fair Oaks so as a treat, after my visits, I get a nut burger at the Sunflower, an old hippie/health food place with great vegetarian food! Where did you move to?
July 7th, 2017  
@brender Very funny, Brenda! This guy was in no danger from me since I have not eaten any meat in 25 years. He just didn't want his photo taken and kept crowing up a storm! :)
July 7th, 2017  
@fbailey @moviegal1 @brett101 Thank you so much. Glad you liked the quote too. The rooster was in no danger from me since I don't eat meat or chicken. He just didn't like me following him around to take a photo. He was crowing up a storm! :)

@ludwigsdiana @fayefaye @lynnz @susale @wendyfrost This rooster hangs around a walk up eating place called the Sunflower, looking for handouts. He was not interested in getting his photo taken and was crowing for help! So funny! There are roosters and hens all over Old Fair Oaks. They have a Chicken Festival in September.

@maggiemae @seattlite @tonygig @evalieutionspics Many thanks for the nice comments and favs. This rooster didn't want his photo taken and he let me know it by crowing for help! He should consider himself lucky since I don't eat meat or chicken...nothing to fear from me! :)

@gardenfolk Had friends there. Moved to Cincinnati, OH. Loved both places, but here has my whole family!
July 7th, 2017  
@alophoto I understand. I have a friend who lives in Cincy and may visit her one day! She is on 365 too! :)
