The big waiting - Deer stands

Waiting as an event of contemplation. A chance - not agony.

Deer Stands are a symbol for this effort of waiting - in this case for prey.

It might be as well somebody with a camera high up there, trusting to produce this special photograph of a very shy and seldom animal, or an other solitaire moment, brilliant and lasting.

But even while siting and waiting in front of a telegraph post or highway, nearby an industrial area there is always a chance to become one with the surrounding environement - with the smell, the sound and movement of nature and the meadows wet with dew, the tentative steps of the approaching stag in early morning light, the trickle of rain in twilight autumn evening -  the elapse of time.

There is this act of self-encountering during a long period of waiting for something to come.
