PART II – CHAPTER 5 – 2008

Charlie had decided he was going to begin working almost exclusively with HDR images. But at the moment, after Bonnie’s two phone calls, he just couldn’t face the rigors of HDRs, so he worked on some water images instead.

A couple weeks earlier, he’d spent much of the morning at Cameron Falls out in Waterton Lakes National Park.

He had lots of close-ups of various parts of the falls. Mostly, though, he’d worked with that little rock in the last three photos.

A bear had surprised him while he was photographing the falls by walking right past him about ten feet to his left. Fortunately, he hadn’t heard the bear coming, and because he was looking into his viewfinder, he hadn’t made eye contact with it.

Unfortunately, he had his camera set up to photograph the falls, so he was quite disappointed with his photos of the bear.

Charlie often wondered what might have happened if he had heard the bear coming and had turned and looked at it, given that eye contact is a sign of aggression.

The other place he enjoyed photographing water was among the rocks in Cameron Creek beside the McNeallys picnic spot on the Akamina Parkway.

But now it was Thursday morning, and he and BJ had to leave for Saskatoon.

Working with the Waterton photos had kept him occupied for most of the week and had given him periods of time when he didn’t think about Randy and Wayne at all.

With Randy’s service being tomorrow, however, and with Wayne’s being on Saturday, he was going to have to come to grips with the loss of the only two friends he’d ever had.
