17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Town Deer

During 2017 I worked as a photographer at Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming. Every morning I would drive by this scene. It always felt like it "lacked" something until this one morning when a deer was sitting in front of the pick-up truck. In the town of Saratoga deer are a common sight as they wander the streets, peoples yards and seem to be fearlessly integrated into the community.
