Close encounters

Close encounters of the deer kind. This one was SO tame I could have walked up and petted it!

Eye contact

Saturday evening sitting out the back when this deer walked across the gardens then stopped to eat some weeds at the edge of the hill. It also patiently waited till I went back inside to pick up my camera.

What’s that?

Then as I slowly approached it started walking over TOWARDS me. I must have taken about 100 shots; it was one of the coolest things that has happened to me in a long time.

She’s off!

Then just as quickly she ran off into the woods.

Technical stuff – Pentax K5 (for once I actually just put the camera in auto and started shooting not having time to figure out the ISO/exposure compensation etc.) Tamron 18-200mm lens, shot at almost full zoom. These are pretty much straight out the camera.

P.S. 3 posts in a week!!! Check me out being all bloggy and stuff!

Transient: Lasting only a short time. Impermanent.

Some old photographs (again) but sums up my idea of transient. Isn’t nature wonderful?


A moment of love

A dream

A laugh

A kiss

A cry


Our rights

Our wrongs


A moment of love

A Dream
