White-Tailed Deer In A Montana Cherry Orchard
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go no further than just a few steps outside your front door to see beautiful creatures such as these white-tailed deer? Well maybe not, if you’re a gardener. As a photographer though, I was happy to see these young bucks and does deer roaming nearby on a beautiful autumn day in Montana, just off the shore of Flathead Lake where I was visiting family.

The Bench Man
I saw this nice gentleman, the other day from across the park. I was there walking with my dogs at Howard Amon Park in Richland, Washington. He’s sitting under sycamore trees along the bank of the Columbia river. There is an empty bench very near, almost as if an open invitation to join him.
Just witnessing him there, enjoying his morning in solitude and complete tranquility, led me to the conclusion that I would benefit from spending more time on a park bench.
The theme of the Benton-Franklin fair this year is “Best Week Of Summer”. It looked to me that these cute piglets at Old MacDonald’s barn were having THEIR best week of summer while napping together. That all ended in a hurry though as soon as their mamma strolled by, bursting with milk. For the next few moments, it was pandemonium and survival of the fittest. Note the three barely visible piglets at the bottom of the pile. I’m not sure how they manage to avoid suffocation in that position, but it didn’t seem to phase them one bit.
“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky and want,
more than all the world,
― Mary Jean Irion
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
When the world feels upside down, I like to look up. The sky is an ever changing canvas, from night to day, from season to season. A multi-colored canvas painted with dramatic compositions and vistas as a constant reminder of the glory of God, the creator.
Who better to share your secrets and burdens of the day with than a loyal and trusted furry friend?
DOGS — Big one, little ones, pure bred, mixed breed, fat, skinny, fluffy, fast or slow. I haven’t met one I didn’t like yet. I have two of my own — a red heeler mix cattle dog and a mini-schnauzer. They make quite the pair. Not a day in my life goes by that they don’t brighten it up in one way or another. If you are a dog lover, I know that you know exactly what I mean by that.
Dogs are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. To learn more about my “petography” sessions, contact me with the form below for more information. Let’s take a walk in the park (or your back yard) and create some CRAZY BEAUTIFUL images of you and your BEST FRIEND for memories you will treasure for many years.
