I'm participating in an "Extreme Reading Challenge" this year,
so I I was planning a photo of me reading raking leaves,
until my husband suggested the falls on a fall afternoon!
It's a restored factory turned venue for weddings and parties,
thus, it was no surprise that an afternoon wedding was wrapping up
while we did "our" photo shoot.
The spot, while not all that extreme, is significant in that
the best from the past (factory buildings and a powerful waterfall)
have intermingled with new ideas, furnishing and people.
I guess that is why the site is perfect, now,
merging pasts into new families, creating futures.
Perhaps I was mesmerized by the rushing water and the setting sun; but,
I could have stayed like those who, in the past, found solace from their labors,
and like those who, today, see potential in merging the past with the future.
My photo depicts "holding tight to things of value," even if they are old,
while embracing new ideas and envisioning potenial for the future.
There was a lot more than meets the eye in this photo at the falls.
