This was my first real attempt at nature photography. My equipment wasn’t ideal: manual focus, ridiculously loud shutter snap from a film camera, 50mm equivalent lens (basically what you see with your eyes) instead of a telephoto. Still, this family of deer let me intrude on their breakfast foraging during my first morning in Yosemite. Of the photos I took on this roadtrip, these were the ones (at least from the color – haven’t seen the b/w stuff yet) that I was most excited to share, because, maybe more-so than the others, they have the look of my mental state at the time of capture – that sort of subjective, non-communicative… something. I hope you get lost in the moment, like I did.
Still, there is communion in nature;
Often removed, rarely a stranger.
