photographist

We talk a lot about the great thinkers who debate and philosophize on the net. And we talk a lot about the great writers here who move us, the great artists helping to bring context and meaning to this place, this time, whatever it is we're doing.
 
When you combine all of that wth the art and science of photography, you get Shelley Powers. These stunning photos and accompanying essay are the treat that is Shelley. They are marvelous works that show us so much about the psychology and quiet grace of deer in the woods. They are what we might have paid $70 each for two decades ago, to have the privilege of displaying them on our coffee tables in a four-color, hardbound book. Come to think of it, I still would.
 
But here they are. Right there. Where she put them. So we could see them.
 
Damn.
