Deer beds

Remember the deer bed photograph from my friend Abbey's beautiful home?

As I wrote years ago (when I first fell in love with these photos), photographer Katherine Wolkoff followed deer trails in Block Island to photograph deer beds. Apparently, deer press down the vegetation to make a sleeping place where predators won't see them. They never use the same bed twice, but the imprints can last for a few days. Katherine found the experience incredibly emotional, and she chose to make her prints 40x50 inches, almost life size. How moving.

Well, after I featured Abbey's house tour last week, so many readers wrote in about her deer bed photograph that the Sasha Wolf Gallery decided to offer Cup of Jo readers 15% off any of Katherine Wolkoff's photographs until September 30. (This is major!)

Thank you again, Sasha and Katherine!
