I hope this image qualifies, since it's not really from a farm but a simple enclosure in the garden of some village house. And believe me, a real candid, as well :-)

What a sweet image! Look at thosedarling eyes...he looks thrilled to be feeding the cow! Looks like you had quite a contrasty situation there to photograph...it's a good thing your subjects were in the shade as there's not such harsh contrast there from the sun. Good for you! :-)

Good observation, StitchBabe as one can expect of you. After all, it was a september afternoon and the Aegean sun was piercing enough.
And I'd welcome your kind compliment for the country boy very willingly,who, in fact, is my boy.
He loves animals soooo much :-)

Great work! The only thing I would be concerned about is the boy getting bitten. I don't know how agressive cows are in this situation.

Bahadir,

Lovely candid shot. The look on the youngster's face is charming. As stitchbabe said the lighting was challenging but you managed to pull this off wonderfully.

Aloha

Bahadir, you always manage to portrait children wonderfully. This picture is no exception (although the cow was supposed to be the main subject since we are talking about farms). The little boy has a wonderful expression and the cow is probably thinking...c'mon, enough pictures already...give me my food, kid!?! Great job,as usual!

Thanks for your appreciation Tullio.
Children are simply great creatures, indeed:G !!
I am amazed by their vivid and crazy perception of the world.. And I beleive that it is not possible to copy a child's picture, no matter how delibaretely you try to apply simple or incorrect draughtsmanship.
Besides, I am also amazed by the unavoidable programme in them which allow them to raise under every circumstance and meanwhile utilize even the slightest possibility of game!!
