…dance like nobody’s watchin’

West Canada Creek
 

You’ve got to sing like you don’t need the money
Love like you’ll never get hurt
You’ve got to dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart if you want it to work.

“Come from the Heart” – composed by Susanna Clark and Richard Leigh

One Opens, One Does Not Close…

West Canada Creek

A door opened… today I start a new job. Back to what I know, but something more. Hopefully, I haven’t forgotten.

Not closing a door… although I left, I do not want to forget. Friends are a precious commodity and the ones I made over the past two years I do not want to lose. I will stay in-touch with all of them.

I went up to the West Canada Creek yesterday before the sun completely dropped below the trees. The rains over the weekend provided the creek with the volume I needed to capture more turbulent flow. I also needed the serenity the sound of rushing water always brings me. I spent an hour playing in the creek… totally needed that time.

I will be thinking of you…

West Canada Creek

Saturday was an interesting day. Overcast, temps hovering above freezing but rather calm. As the morning wore on the sun tried to make an appearance and there would be pockets of sunshine. It was the perfect day to go play in the creek!

I waited until almost lunch time hoping to combine the trip to the creek with a visit to foothills Mercantile, the consignment store where I found some of my oil cans. I was trying to find another one or maybe an old can of oil. I’m thinking it would be cool to have some cans to use as background for the images. I didn’t find any cans of oil but I did pick up another oil can. More on that later…

I did have a good time playing in the West Canada Creek. The flow of water was not so much as to obscure any dynamic action in the water. I didn’t want a trickle but a heavy volume is almost as bad as very little water. I used my telephoto lens to capture some great detail out in the middle of the creek. I think I spent an hour exploring both sides around the Morgan’s Mill Dam area in Trenton Falls. It was a good day!
