Doe's Taste Of Summer ...



“… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”
                       ~ “The Peace of Wild Things”
                                      ~ Wendell Berry
                                       ~ born 1934
                 ~ American novelist, poet,  
                    environmental activist,         
                      cultural critic & farmer

My favorite white-tailed deer doe enjoys a taste of summer as she savors an apple on a beautiful July evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.

In The Cold Spring Rain ...



“…I’ll go walking through
With the rain in my shoes
Searchin’ for you 
In the cold Kentucky rain …”
                    ~ “Kentucky Rain”
              ~ written by Eddie Rabbitt & Dick Heard
     ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                                ~ 1970

With a cold spring rain falling lightly on a chilly April afternoon, a man soaks in the quiet beauty as he walks in Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania in this artistic interpretation.

In The Pink Of Spring ...



“In the spring, at the end of the day,
you should smell like dirt.”
                           ~ Margaret Atwood
                                        ~ born 1939

I spotted this pink bicycle left near a tree at the Springhouse of Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania as sunset knocked on the door of a picturesque April day. No doubt the bike’s owner was off exploring the beauty of the outdoors … in the pink of spring.

The log cabin close to the bicycle was part of Springhouse, the summer home of General Harry C. Trexler (1854-1933), an American industrialist who built a business empire in Allentown. The park is his namesake.
