Finding the energy to walk back over was a bit difficult, but I so wanted to see those glittery deer lit…determination won out! I bundled up and walked the three-quarters of a mile, taking many other images along the way, and when I arrived, the lovely deer were not lit! Aaargh!
Disappointed, I walked over to Howard Street, which was surprisingly quiet (wish it could always be so quiet!), and found just a few interesting spots to shoot. Carrying the tripod was cumbersome; I had to keep removing it from a shoulder bag, so I took off the camera and did some hand-helds…hard to do in low light, but they came out well.
Deciding to return home (I was freezing!), I began to walk back another route until that ‘little voice’ said, “No, go check once more!”, and I did.
Here are the results, which I thought were lovely!
Since I was there the other day, the owners added a playmate for the deer and some extra lights!
Pretty cute, huh?
