The Art Of Victorian Days ...



“Art is much, but love is more.”
                   ~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning
                            ~ 1806-1861
 It's "horsepower" in tandem as a horse-drawn carriage crosses paths with a Chevy Bel Air – which sported an “historic” license plate – at the 27th  Belvidere Victorian Days in Garret D. Wall Park on a beautiful waning summer afternoon in Belvidere, New Jersey.

Victorian Days, held the weekend after Labor Day, is a celebration of Belvidere’s Victorian heritage. Festivities include live entertainment; antique, craft and food vendors; antique/vintage car show; and Victorian era demonstrations.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers. Victorian Days is a perfect time to stroll through the town and step back into a bygone era.

The Vanishing Winter ...



"Roll forth, my song,
like the rushing river."
                      ~ James Clarence Mangan
                                        ~ 1803-1849

Spring rushes its joyful song on the
Delaware River in Belvidere, New Jersey as
a seagull flies in the distance on a rare and warm February breeze.

Chunks of ice are the only trace of the 
vanishing winter in my abstract view of the
beautiful scene I shot standing on the Jersey side beneath the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported Bridge. 

The bridge, which opened in 1904, links
Belvidere, New Jersey and Riverton, Pennsylvania.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is
a charming Victorian town located on the banks
of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

A River Runs Through It ...



"But memory is an autumn leaf that
murmurs a while in the wind
and then is heard no more."
                   ~ Khalil Gibran
                                 ~ 1883-1931

Leaves frame the autumn colors cascading across the Pequest River as it flows through the middle of town in Belvidere, New Jersey on a perfect Indian Summer day in November.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places,
is a charming, Victorian town located on the
banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

Indian Summer On The Delaware ...



"Each golden day was cherished in the fall, 

for one had the feeling that each must be the last.

Tommorrow it would be winter."

                                             ~ author Elizabeth Enright

                                                              ~ 1909-1968

Indian Summer is my most favorite of seasons with it's warm
golden days and crisp evenings ... the best of both worlds.
And it was a quintessential Indian Summer day in early November
when I shot this beautiful vista of the Delaware River
from the Riverton-Belvidere Toll Supported Bridge.
The bridge, which opened in 1904, links Belvidere, New Jersey and
Riverton, Pennsylvania.

Victorian Charm


"What I like about black and white photographs  
is that they're more like reading the book then seeing the movie."
                                                           ~Author Unknown

The historic Hotel Belvidere, built in 1831, is located in the quaint, scenic town of Belvidere, New Jersey. Belvidere is a charming Victorian town I visited this weekend, located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

George Washington traveled through Belvidere at 10 a.m. July 26, 1872 when he camped at Morristown.
