96/269

Awhile ago, Phriend and I had learned of the Paterson Waterfalls. These Eastern US Falls, are roughly 2 hours from our home and like our Asbury Park trip, sadly, not in the best of areas. But after making it safely into and out of Asbury, Dana and I had a new sense of confidence and security. We wanted to go to the Falls. I had mentioned it to my mom and she responded, you are not going to Paterson, Falls or no Falls. After remembering I was, in fact, an adult and was capable of making a decision about going, I did come to my senses and decided we should take at least one other person, perhaps two, to keep outlook. We have realized, on several occasions, while we’re busy looking through the view finder, down the barrel of the lens, we lose sight of our surroundings. We are so transfixed on composing the perfect shot, anyone or thing could easily sneak up on us. I sweet talked B into coming with us and Dana ask a friend to join us.  We packed our camera gear and ventured up the Garden State Parkway.

 Over the next day or so, I will be posting more photos from these falls.

This is gorgeous! I'm glad you ventured out... and glad you got through safely! I keep noticing a guy up on the bridge... makes the picture even more mysterious I think.

Wow! That is beautiful! Can't wait to see more picture. I'm glad you take precautions when you go out. I'm the same way, I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing I forget about all the people around me! I try to make sure one person always knows where I am at all times since I'm SAHM and I don't talk to too many people throughout the day. :)
