Delta Mystery

Delta Mystery

A big rain with flash flooding caused this creek to overflow. There was a lot of debris, including this rusted metal vessel, that lingered after the water subsided.

The large, weathered vessel certainly showed change from the ravishes of time. I wonder how old it is. I wonder where it has been and what it was used for. The mesh moon and star shapes intrigue me. Could it have been a fire pit of some kind? If so, who shared in its warmth?

Detail

Old items have stories to tell and this one seems a mystery.

See Green

Fountain

Spring is the time to see green! I took all these photos last April when the bright green color of spring was all around.

Now, its starting to look like spring again, with bursts of greenery signaling the arrival of the season! Happy Spring!

Rising Creek (One Word Photo Challenge-Flood)

Rising Creek

Rising Creek

I live near Mudlick Creek and when it rains a lot the water grows muddy and the creek rises. During a heavy rain, the creek will overflow its banks and flood the road nearby, forcing me to take an alternate route. In due time, the water will subside, returning to the comfort of its creek bed.

I am posting this photo for JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge-Flood. Years ago, I actually experienced a big, devastating flood in my town and don’t care to experience another.

I thought the photo might be effective in black and white, but I miss the muddy brown of the water. Without the detail, I think the photo may seem bland. What do you think?

Muddy Water (One Word Photo Challenge)

Muddy Water (Flash Fiction)

She needed to see the creek. That is where she always went when she needed to make a decision. She told herself that looking at the flowing water would give her clarity. But on this day, the creek water was as muddy as her thoughts. She knew making the decision would have to wait. She would not be hurried. It was right to wait.

(This post is in response to JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge with the theme of the brown color called Beaver and to the Five Day Challenge that I was invited to participate in by terryb at through the lens of my life..

Today, it seems fitting to invite Jennifer of JNW to take part in the Five Day Challenge since I brazenly tacked this on to her challenge today. Jennifer, I’m sure you must get lots of challenge invites, so if this is not the right time or you have already participated, I certainly understand. If you want to join in, please do. The challenge is to post five photos, one per day, for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. The story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page or a poem. Each day you select another person to carry on the challenge.

Thank you, Jennifer, for hosting the OWPC! I look forward to it every week.)
