Cowboy Country Sayings
"Man bleibt länger obenauf, setzt man sich auf den Sattelknauf."
This pictures are out of a calendar I made as a birthday present for my sister. It's my kind of revenge because she sometimes gives old fashioned calendars with boring country sayings as Christmas present - at least not for me. My idea was to create a calendar with Wild West Country sayings for every month. Therefore I rhymed some sayings and shot photos. As models I used small plastic figures I got from her some weeks ago. A great first test for my new macro lens.
I'm not going to translate the phrases because it's nearly impossible.
