RVA

 

 

I’m going to try to get back and photograph the river ruins which really aren’t that old.

I have photographed the ruins from the north side of the river : https://o3bigpicture.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/river-ruins/

    I really like Jared Diamond’s work, and would be curious to know the source of that quote. Not sure which “civilization” he is referring to, but people have been living among their own ruins, and mostly right on top of them, for a long, long time.
