P is for Photographs, of course. And P is for Potamophilia. Potamowhut?? Poh-tuh-moh-fil-ya. A love of rivers and all things riverine. That's turning out to be the theme for these posts, loosely...come back periodically to the rivers and the ghats and flowing waters generally. 

The Aire at Leeds, UK.

Thames at London, UK. 

Guadalquivir at Seville, Spain

Hudson at NYC, US

Potomac at Washington DC, US.

Purple People's Bridge on the Ohio, Cincinnati, OH, US.

Hooghly at Bandel, W Bengal, India complete with pointy boats,
a popular local mode of river transport.

Nile at Cairo, Egypt. 

Rangeet river at Baiguney, North Bengal, India.

 Gomti at Lucknow, India.

Ba, Fiji.

View of Ganges from BrijRama Palace Hotel, Varanasi, India.

Niagara, USA.

Ichhamati at Taki, border area between the two Bengals -
West Bengal in India and Bangladesh.

That's P for Photos portraying Potamophilia.  Hope you've enjoyed them. Happy A-Zing! - if you're participating. And happy cusp season to you, if you're not!

  3. Hi Nila - what a lovely selection ... having started off with two British ones - I thought they can't all be British - but no ... lots of places ... I'd love to visit the bridge over the Niagara ... not the Falls necessarily - but yes any river, sea promenade etc ... especially in the Spring time ... and then the Bengal - one to the west and the other country to the east. Cheers and great word potomphilliac - Hilary

  4. I grew up in Detroit and we had the Detroit River. Almost everywhere I've lived has had water nearby. Until we moved here to Atlanta. I do miss water, rivers, lakes, oceans streams.
