Cock a doodle do!

Cock a doodle do!

A cock in Bunratty Folk Village struts around protecting his patch of ground from a nosy photographer.

Don’t think I’ve ever heard the nursery rhyme of the same phrase.

Cock a doodle do!
My dame has lost her shoe,
My master’s lost his fiddlestick,
And knows not what to do.

  1. Hehe, they do pierce the soul don’t they?

    I was in a hurry when I took this shot and as I walked away noticed the top of his head was slightly cut off. The curses I used then can’t be repeated here.
    Cropping the bottom off seems to help IMO and makes it more symmetrical.

    Well it’s the first time to see this odd use of symetrics, for cropping the bottom details off from the main subject. You lost his shoes – crop off his hat or hair; his legs – the head; his left hand – crop off the right one too, onbehalf the symetrics. Where would you stop?
