In the spirit of Halloween, I thought it would be appropriate to post these photos that I took the other week. On site filming a solar installation for work, I couldn’t resist hiking up the dirt road above the remote, wooded residence with my camera to see where it led. It was one of those beautiful fall days, the kind of day I most love wandering in the woods, leaves crunching below my feet and sunlight glowing on the orange leaves.
Venture outside the college town radius of Burlington and you could throw a stone and hit a hunter. November begins hunting season and thus it is was not shocking to see this foam deer perched on a tree, body pierced with arrows. Nonetheless, this particular deer, with its muscular face, so impressively portrayed a combination of fear and dignity that I’ve noticed to be true to character when I’ve see a deer standing still in the woods. Who was this foam deer artist who took the time to thoughtfully carve out the face and capture the essence of a deer standing by a tree, hunter within shot, arrow ready to pierce.
