Doe's Summer Portrait ...

“Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive.”
             ~ Elliott Erwitt
                ~ photographer
             ~ born 1928
Leaves softly frame the face of my favorite white-tailed deer doe as she peeks out of the trees in this black and white portrait I shot in the late afternoon of a mid-August day 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.

Ain't Nothin' Like A Summer Day ...

“Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
           ~ Henry James
                 ~ 1843-1916
Under the cool shade of trees in late August, a hammock I saw on a property along the Saucon Rail Trail, Hellertown, Pennsylvania paints a quintessential scene in sepia of a perfect afternoon in summer, my most favorite of seasons.

Ain’t nothin’ like a summer day!
