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.

Don't Fence Me In ...


“Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evenin’ breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don’t fence me in …”
   ~ “Don’t Fence Me In”
     ~ popular American song written in 1934, with music by Cole Porter and lyrics by Robert Fletcher and Cole Porter. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time. The song was recorded by artists including Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Bing Crosby, Kate Smith and Ella Fitzgerald.

The Candid Doe ...

 My favorite white-tailed deer doe seems to say hello as she strikes a candid pose while seeing me walking toward her 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.
