Mooove out of the way

12 August 2009

there’s a new paparazzi in town.

The latest member of the Hall for Cornwall’s ‘Jack’s Cows’ project released
into the wild is on a mission to capture photos of the public around the

‘Blue Lady’, which has been sponsored by the King Harry Ferry Company, has been fitted with a webcam to take images of its surroundings.

Using the latest mobile phone technology, Blue Lady’s cowcam will click
every 30 seconds and upload images online to www.kingharryscornwall.co.uk/cowcam.

The King Harry team hope it will start a craze for people having their photograph taken by the fibreglass cow.

“When we decided to be part of the ‘Jack’s Cows’ project, we wanted to get
people more involved with the cow and so decided that taking their  snapshots was the best way to get them interacting,” said Tim Light, King Harry Ferry’s managing director.

''The cow was on Events Square in Falmouth for the start of Falmouth Week and we had hundreds of people standing in front of the cow phoning friends around the country to get them to take a look, it was just fantastic.

“Changing the location regularly will hopefully make ‘Blue Lady’ a familiar sight around Cornwall and we may even get a herd of followers!”

‘Blue Lady’ will be travelling around Cornwall until September 1 when it will be on display at HfC before going to auction to raise money for the theatre’s Loved to Bits campaign.

"We'd also like to say a big thank you to Paul Harry from www.falmouthphotos.com, who fitted the cow cam and did a fantastic job of
making the idea work," added Tim.

To follow its movements so you can be photographed in front of it please visit www.kingharryscornwall.co.uk/cowcam.

Anyone who wants to see all the cows while they're out and about can get a
copy of Jack's Udderly Fantastic Cow Finder map to help them locate the whole herd. The maps are available to buy at HfC and a number of other selected outlets around Cornwall.
