Header Compitition Season 2 #44 "Literature"

The theme this week is by Dave which is "Literature". Mac, Gail's Man, Lanny, Dave,Sandy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesday and start the voting after that.

The theme this week leaves you with a lot of directions to go. I thought I would take two pieces of litature and show you what I came through with the ideas behind them.

The first is "A River Runs Through It" by Norman McClean. It is a story of a Montana life (and fishing a river for trout).  My favorite line is "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters." My photos for this movie comes from the Cuyahoga River that runs through Kent, Ohio.

This is the Main Street Bridge, as a river runs through it.
A Wide view.

Here are some other river photos.
Here are some of the river rocks. Are the words of man hidden underneath?
I chose a play by Ernest Thompson, which I enjoyed, "On Golden Pond". The story of an aging family and life with a youngster. Yes, fishing is involved on the Maine lake. Both my choices were made into movies which I have enjoyed. The lake I fish had a glow from the Sun this morning and I used it for my header.

See what the others have from the above links.

Hope you didn't get the pages of your book wet Tom, with all those rivers!

So that's what you read whilst waiting for the fish to bite! Lovely morning sky over the lake in your header shot, nicely captured.
