Well, just like Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack, I’ve been traveling for a few days – so her theme of the moment, Leading Lines, fits just fine with my most recent photos.
I’ll probably do a post on our trip soon, but meanwhile, here are a few shots:
Going home…to the left, the old Delaware Canal, a superhighway of its time (around 1830). Canals were wildly popular for providing a smooth ride and relatively fast transport – until they were put out of business by railroads.
And crossing the Delaware River with New Jersey to the left and Pennsylvania to the right, and the river leading south to Trenton, NJ, then to Philadelphia, and on to the Atlantic Ocean and the world. This photo is a demonstration of how limited cameras are compared to the human eye; I took it less than 24 hours ago, and I remember clearly how green the trees on the banks looked. Even with a little editing, I can’t get the photo to show them as much more than greenish-black without washing out the river and the sky.
