Looking Out My Window

"Photography is a way of feeling of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything."

-Aaron Suskind

Today was one of those days. I didn't get much done, but I did decide to take the advice given to me by a good friend, a while back, for handling days like today. "If you can't go out to take photos, set the tripod up in your bedroom and take photos out the window...so that's what I did! And look what I saw. I got to see this deer and a couple others walk through the back of the property in the late afternoon. I love living up in the hills. Good advice friend! :)

Over at my photoblog, Ellipsis...Legeres D' Ambiant, I am counting down my top 10 favorite photos of the year. Be sure to drop by when you get the chance to see my very best in photographs!

Carly, you have inspired me to start using my camera as a creative outlet. I have far too many homebound days in the winter.
I love your pictures and visit your photo blog often. So much is right outside our window's.

I have several pictures of animals that I photographed outside my back window, including three shots of a possum and one of a squat that was on our fence that you can see on my "Freaks of Nature" blog. It's great living close to nature in a city.
