On the River's Verge

Here, on the river's verge, I could be busy for months without changing my place, simply leaning a little more to right or left.  -- Paul Cezanne



This photo was taken while hiking along the Blackwater River during our camping trip to Blackwater River State Park in Holt, Florida.  It was such a beautiful, lazy river; we loved stopping along the banks to enjoy the views.

I am joining Ruckus the Eskie for Sepia Saturday.  Do you have a great sepia-toned photo to share?  If so, link up to the Hop!

    1. You've never been to a river? Why do your humans make you live such a sheltered life?

    1. OMD...great minds think alike because I was going to quote from that song instead of using the one from Cezanne! BOL You will be singing that all day if you start...

  8. I love your photo and I love the quote. A river runs through our city, and it draws us to it. There's a wonderful network of trails on both sides. We, too, could be busy for months on its banks. Hope you have a lovely Saturday!
