Perhaps it was Andy Lewis’s stellar slackline appearance during Madonna’s equally impressive Super Bowl half time show. Or maybe it was simply due to a lack of waves…regardless of the motivation, my dear friend Kadri DB Kurgun and I were inspired one sunny morning in Rincon, Puerto Rico to do a slackline photo shoot in a large field with massive palm trees, beautiful ocean background views and what we thought would be innocent bystanders - some of the local cows.
Little did we know when we set up the line that the seemingly uninterested cows would even take notice. Choosing a set of palm trees based on the lighting, we anchored the line expecting the cows to stay in their herd in the background. But as soon as the line went up things rapidly progressed. Turns out cows are totally into slacklining, or very curious about it at least.
Special thanks to Kadri Kurgun for sharing the experience and always making me laugh (even when cows aren’t involved). Check out more of his work at www.kadrikurgun.com
