Life in Focus-Deer in the Snow

Deer in the Snow
Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
Eddie Cantor (1892 – 1964)

So many of us don’t make time to enjoy the journey; and in my opinion, the journey is as important as the destination. Great photo, BTW. How can anyone harm such a lovely creature?

Great photo of my favorite animal (other than dogs, of course). Beautiful!

Gorgeous photo! And oh so true!

What a gorgeous photo!!! And I had no idea Eddie Cantor was so wise. :)

That is an AWESOME photo, Kacey!!!

It’s one of my favorite photos that I’ve taken in awhile. The snow was falling on his back. Close enough that I could get a good close up shot of him. Have I mentioned I love my camera?

Kate February 3, 2008 at 8:12 pm

What camera do you use? I’m in love with mine, too but am still trying to figure out the relationship. There’s so much we don’t know about each other. Oh, I must take another one of these emotion things and insert it right here. :typing:

Good pic of the snow on the deer. Very nice.

Kate, I have a Canon xti. Love it. Just got it in October. I had a 35mm camera ages ago, and a fairly decent sony point and shoot. But I wanted, had to have, a DSLR. It’s been a learning curve, but honestly, I adore it. I’m still learning new things on the camera though.

Fist I saw life through my eyes, then my young sons, now my camera.

I’m insanely jealous of both yours and Kate’s Canons. I’d love to upgrade to a DSLR. Even though my camera is a high-end camera it is still a point-and-shoot. It definitely has limitations (like shallow depth of field). One day…

Christine February 4, 2008 at 12:20 am

Oh wait! Kate, you have a Nikon D80… still jealous!! :lol:

Hi Kacey. Wow, this photo of the deer is adorable. And great words to go with it. Lent is the perfect time for slowing down.

Kacey February 4, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Colleen! Just love this! “First I saw life through my eyes, then my young sons, now my camera.”

Christine. I really do love my camera! I use it everyday.

Britt-Arnhild–thanks for stopping by. I liked the quote too. I’m kind of a quote collector.
