Children playing on the beach of Sugar Creek, Turkey Run State Park, shot from the suspension bridge. Again, a photo that languished. I shot 160-something photos this day, dragging around a camera and tripod through the canyons and caves. They were all a mess, settings never more off, no idea of how to shoot this backdrop... just plain old crap start to finish. This is one of the few photos that I kept coming back to. I loved the light and the long afternoon shadows. I loved these Peter Pan boys. I loved the sparkle of the water and the almost 'Lord of the Rings' look this image possessed. It seems few here agree. Why is that?

In the The Way We Were photo essay.

    Creative, and so well composed--strong symbolism--I'm hearing Neil Young's Sugar Mountain with this

    Jim ~ I couldn't agree with you more and am amazed that you, too, pull from your life and your memories as you consume life in the present. It is all an unbridled flow.

    And no, you can't be twenty on Sugar Mountain.
