heartening news

Last week's lecture about the Harlem River Valley was great. Using PowerPoint, Dr. Horenstein gave a very informative and entertaining overview of the geology and history of the river. Anticipating the answer, I asked if there are any known books that highlight the history of the Harlem waterway and/or its bridges. Besides The Bridges of New York, which is well-detailed but dated, there isn't anything else, he responded. Like when he prefaced his presentation, he told us that the river is begging for people to get involved. It's rich in so many different ways.

Then, a few days later, I stumbled upon a heartening article about a photographer, who completed a 10-month project capturing the Hudson River that became a book.

I think it's all a sign that you should be writing a book and illustrating it with you wonderful photos.
