It's taken me a while to get the photo for today up because I took literally hundreds of photos today and choosing my favorite was extremely tough. Why? Because I spent a large part of the day tracking down cows that are part of the Cow Parade La Jolla Art Exhibit.
You can read more about it here (http://www.cowparadelajolla.com/).
It's something that's taken places in other cities before, but it's new to San Diego (the exhibit runs from March 15 through June 15). Basically, 40 local artists got blank white cow statues that they were able to alter to fit their vision. Each cow is sponsored by a local business as well. At the end of the exhibition, the cows will be auctioned off and the proceeds donated to charity. I have a few favorites, but nowhere to put them, so I won't be bidding, but I enjoyed photographing the ones I was able to get to this time around :-)
I still haven't gone through all my photos, but I figured I better get this posted so I choose one of my favorites so far (I had many). This is actually the first cow I visited!
If you're interested in seeing the rest of the cows, I plan to post the entire parade (or at least those I was able to find and photograph) on my other blog (http://lilikoi44.blogspot.com) sometime this weekend!
