Nuzzle ...


“Bless the beasts and the children ... give them love, let it shine all around them.”
            ~ “Bless the Beasts and the Children”
                                  ~ 1971
 I feel so blessed personally and as a photographer to have witnessed this tender, precious moment as this beautiful white-tailed deer doe nuzzles her sweet fawn on a mid-March evening when winter is about to segue into spring at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Stand By Me ...


“When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No, I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand my me
Oh stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry
No, I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin’, darlin’
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you’re in trouble, won’t you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won’t you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me”
       ~ “Stand by Me”
      ~ originally performed by Ben E. King
                            ~ 1938-2015
                 ~ released April 1961
      ~ written by Ben. E. King,
             Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller

According to Ben E. King, the title is derived from, and was inspired by, a spiritual written by Sam Cooke and J.W. Alexander called “Stand by Me Father,” recorded by The Soul Stirrers with Johnnie Taylor singing lead. The third line of the second verse of the former work derives from Psalm 46:2-3.

There have been more than 400 recorded versions of the song, performed by many artists. It was featured on the soundtrack of the 1986 film “Stand by Me.”

A majestic four point white-tailed deer buck and beautiful doe stand side by side as a peaceful hush sweeps across the field just before a midwinter snowfall begins to tumble from the sky in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured in the park in the late afternoon of a February day.

Goodnight Sun


“Know where to find the sunrise and sunset times and note how the sky looks at those times, at least once.”
