Around ten in the morning the wife and I were working in the backyard in the garden. I happened to look over the fence into the neighbor's back yard, and to my surprise I spotted this cautious little mule deer doe. She looked back at me and then continued browsing on the grass. I ran in the house and grabbed my camera and began shooting. She glanced at me occasionally, but seemed more concerned about eating. I assume that after a few seconds she grew nervous at the sound of the camera and decided to move on to greener pastures.

I went on a day trip this morning to an area that's about 30 miles from home. Someone recently told me about the great scenery I could photograph there. Aside from the flowers, I wasn't much impressed with his assessment of "scenery." The road is about a five- miles- per- hour- passage that seems to go forever; well it seems like it when you can drive only 5 to 10 miles per hour. Actually, I drove about seven miles before deciding the guy was either smoking something when he was there or to him it really was beautiful. Decide for yourself.

This small grove is probably my favorite subject in all of Rainbow Canyon. Of course the entire canyon is scenic, and each time I head down it, although I take the same route, I always see things in a different way and manage to take 50 or 60 photos. (22" x 15")

A medieval city in the south of France. A fascinating place, pretty much the same as it was centuries ago except for the modern vendors pushing their wares. We spent about an hour there before it grew too dark to navigate the narrow streets. The wife and two of our three kids are in the scene. Our older son must have been chatting with a mademoiselle at the time.
