OR a Deere Dear. Turns out deere is not just a tractor brand, but an archaic spelling of both; deer and dear.
I can’t help but think of Timothy & Dale, as I write this. Tim because we were gagging around in comments with the word “deer/dear/deere”. Dale because she posted some pics of deer in her Wordless Wednesday spot on Marc’s blog.
Anyway, this is one of those high up murals that I had to try hard to capture.
It is a unique dear deer deere!

Thank you, Graham!
Wow! What an amazing find, Resa. Deer goddess, I assume. I love how the artist got the draping of the fabric.
I had heard about this deer. I went out to find it, but it was evading me. There was a door. I wasn’t sure what it was an entrance for, but I went inside anyway. Turns out it was a courtyard, and there was the deer.
It’s so much fun hunting down street art!
I love tagging along on your hunt for street art!
I should get a pith helmet!
A mythic quest! 😊
Hi Resa, this is a fascinating mural: the body of a woman and the head of a deer. That is a first for me. It is very eye catching.
Well Robbie, it’s a first for me too.
It is eye catching. The technique is different, too. It must have taken the artist a long time drawing this line by line by line.
It is very effective.
I love images of deer, they seem to be my spirit animal and this is stunning
Ah… your spirit animal. The first thoughts I had when I saw this deer were it seemed like a spirit.
It’s quite unique.
Definitely a dear deer! Wish the artist had a touch of color! A girl likes a bit of bling!
Lol! I’ve seen about a half dozen works by this artist, and it’s all black and white line drawings. It’s his style, and he’s sticking to it…. so far!
I have some blingy art coming up!
It’s beautiful. Elegant, just like they are.
Yes, beautiful creatures. This says a lot! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JSNr9NxOdAx
Wow! And such a forceful symbol of diversity – the head of a male deer on a female body…
Stay safe, dear Resa!
Yes… diversity! It surely is a unique piece, both in statement and style.
You stay safe too, dear Martha!
An unusual deer but beautifully photographed, Resa. Thanks for sharing this mural.

Getting fancy, eh?

Trying a new signature. I like the original best. OX OX OX OX.
You are welcome dear John!
We had a snow storm las night. The photographer is coming from out of the city, so we postponed until tomorrow.
Yay…I get to stress for 1 more day!
What came first, the deer or the OX?
💋 🦌🐂 💋 🐂🦌 💋
OX is first. 🐂🐂🐂🐂
I love how you reveal this one bit by bit and I am rather amazed that you managed to capture all of this beauty. She is high up! Such beautiful detail, as well.
It was a fun challenge, to capture this.
So, now we have both captured deer. You have a nature deer. I have a cement deer.
This is the only style I’ve seen from this artist; black and white lines. ⚡️💥
I bet it was!
And you are right. We both have.
Black and white lines done just right, I say. 🧚♀️🌟
Oh dear. That is quite a deer. Or deeress. It’s a really great find. Was that the one you were looking for when you found the previous post?
Yes, this is the deer, my dear!
After all our gagging, how could I not think of you. As well as it gave me the title for the post! xo
I noticed that Deere in the title. It’s very dear to the deer. Dear!
It’s dear to the deere who posted the deer, as well! xo
Resa – you have captured a wonderful photograph collection of “A Deere Deer.” I especially appreciate how you position each photo to give us a fresh perspective of this mural.
Thank you, Rebecca.
I do try to capture the pieces in a way that I can present how they make me feel when I first see them. Finding this deer was like finding a spirit.
It looks like a spirit! Hugs!
What a wonderful, hard-earned find, Resa, photographed superbly! Instead of the Court Yard Hounds (a Dixie Chicks musical side project), we have the Courtyard Deer/Human. 🙂
It was a crazy day. I’m hoping for more!
Thanks Dave, re: my photography! When I find these tall/high works, I think… how to take and how to present.
We need to talk about how you are treating us animals.
Yes, many humans need to have that talk!
Deer oh deer, I was admiring it from the first shots and then you gradually moved down the mural… That I did not expect! Love the way you presented it. What a mural, dahling! Love and hugs and
….special kisses form Hera, so …you know the drill! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Aww, thank you, dahling!
It seems I presented it the way I first saw it. I saw the head, ten I looked down.
It’s a unique mural, for sure.
Oh yes it is!
Oh Deer! Deere! Dear!
I see a deer and then I scroll down a little bit more and I see a deer who is posing as a philosopher and then I scroll down a little bit more and I see a deer who is posing as a philosopher and is that? Could it be? Nah! But yeah! It’s a . . . . nipple?
Yes, well it’s a nipple deer.
Meh, what’s a nipple between deere friends.
So sexy! Thank you for sharing.
What a deer/dear/deere mural. So beautiful and elegant. Thanks, Resa. A wonderful find.
It is quite elegant, now that you mention it.
Lol, my vision went whacko when I was shooting it, then again when preparing the post.
It’s like some kind of optics trick with all those lines.
I had to post this before I did the Anne Bolyen post. The history is rich.
Have you started writing a new book?
The wavy lines didn’t bother me, but I was looking at a small pic on my computer. Yes. I started on a new book. I’m trying for 1,000 words a day, but not really putting much pressure on my self. Life is too busy!
Yes, hectic is the word!
Hey, the book is started. It will take on a life and speed of its own!
I like that you showed so many different angles, Resa. You made it look easy, but I could understand the difficulty when I saw the shot from farther back. Great job. Hugs.
Thank you, Teagan!I’m thrilled to have this in my collection!
❤️ Agree! ❤️
Dear deer, deere – I think you are a unique beauty. So elegant. I hate to pry, and I know it is culturally unacceptable to ask, but I had to wonder if you are trans. Perhaps you were born in a human body but identify as a deer? Or the other way around? Oh, yeah, and the horns are quite becoming, if usually seen on deer that identify as male. Anyway, I have not seen a deere that I did not think was gorgeous, and you, dear, are no exception.
Great capture, Resa! It does look like a difficult location, but you did a wonderful job.
You are a dear, deere, deer whisperer, Trent!
There he goes again, talking to art.
Art could be a person, but not.
It ws actually a lot of fun trying to capture this piece. Thank you!
Doesn’t everyone talk to art? lol. But it is a great piece of art and a super capture. Glad the challenge of capturing it was fun. 🙂
This mural reminds me of old etchings. Quite a find!
True Liz, it is like an etching. Everything I have seen from this artist is in this technique.
It’s a goody.
Particularly on such a large scale.
A darling deer my dear. Is there anything more elegant than a deer and this artist has capture all that and ventured beyond your average deer to perhaps a god/goddess deer.
Lovely find dearest Resa. xoxoxo
I think a goddess dear deer sounds good.
It’s a unique piece, and fab for the collection.
It’s quite the treat to find street art, let alone a mural this unusual.
So agree, it’s unusual and unique and beautiful 😍 xoxoxo
The spelling of the words between past and now (and I am sure the future as well) is one of my most favourite things to temper with while writing, the words Dear and Deer being ones I often like to experiment with.
That is why you are such a fabulous poet, dear deere Oloriel!
Great to see you!
I rather like pencil art. I imagine a gal up a ladder with a pencil at work. Brilliant. Regards, TOF
TOF, it’s a good one! A magic pencil at work.
Excellent find, Resa. I love the mythological or (even) Pagan theme to it. Kudos to the artist and thanks as always for sharing your pics!
Yes,Pagan is a good word for it…. in a good way! 😉🙃🥰
Wow, my Deer! Such an imagination for creating such beauty. My dear Resa, it is the dearest Deer I have ever seen. Thank you! 🙏🦌💖
You are welcome! 🙏🦌💖
Hi Resa, fabulous deer my dear! I like the hatching effect – very similar to the shading on banknotes. Oh and I may have a picture or two for you from a far away land – I’ll send you them when I can but I’m a bit off the grid at the moment. ok!
Excellent. Could be Diana the “huntress”?
(Love the sketching technique of short lines… )
Yes, could be Diana. The technique is quite unique for street art. xo
Quite, quite.. I saw something very similar in the Latin quarter in Paris a few years ago. Lemme see if I can find the post.
No. I was thinking of another post of yours. The comment remains, quite unique a technique for street art. (And another proof of talent of street artists…)
