    ah!

    ah my friend, if only I knew

    Thank you very much, by the way.

    My personal take on it is based on two reasons: historical and geographical. Historical, because it's one of the oldest states, and thus has more "history", so to speak. There are quite a lot of old money/families living in the area and with that comes the political and financial influences that might have brought some of the artists to live in the area, if they weren't born around here to begin with. Providence, RI is also a haven for artists and intellectuals with many famous schools and colleges (the two most famous are probably Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design aka RISD), and it tends to reflect on the atmosphere of the place, I think. Geographically speaking, the landscape and old Victorian architecture are prone to exhult wild imagination bursts, perfect for a Lovecraftian novel, for instance, or a Poe lamentation. The weather is inconsistent and certainly has some effect on the psyche of the people living here. It can changes radically in 30 minutes from sun to snow, and it does happen. Such extremes do help depression, I would assume, or at least certainly influences the finding of those hidden dark places within the confinements of one's inner self.

    I blabber, but the place is old and the memories of time are present. It's up to the individual to see or feel them.

    It's been a little while now, but I had a chance to visit with Jon Foster for a weekend in Providence and I can tell you as a "tourist" it was one of the coolest places I've ever been. The vibe (for lack of a better way to put it) was really cool and I would very much like to go back again. It's just as tegehel has stated. The whole area seems to drip with historic significance and weight. I could feel it in the air. Another reason I was so anxious when I got there is because it's the stomping grounds and resting place of H.P.Lovecraft, one of my favorites. I didn't have my camera then, but would love to go back and take a shot of his grave. That cemetery was absolutely beautiful!

    If you have a chance to visit you definitely should!!!! I hope to go back soon!

    wow wow wow wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww :clapping2 :jump1: :jump2: :fruit:
    Guys welcome all back; I cannot imagine that I have missed all of these pictures in just 2 days.
    These nature photos are really great, I wish I had more time to show the nature in my country but I don't and my camera is in the repair shop.

    tyboogie, I like the pictures for the cathedral and the foot print a lot. Nice work.
    Smeagol71, welcome back, great pictures.
    PhilHolland, I have to say this honestly, I didn't like the photos that you took with macros and with a powerful perspective, because they were of course impressive but could've been taken anytime and any place, but this time I loved all these photos, they are momental and interactive somehow.

    King your product decreased in quantity, but you take some shots that pass unnoticed in real life, and they are very good for that reason.

    phil: that stick totally looks like a swimming snake. I like the pigeons and some of the others as well.

    tegehel: Thanks for the cemetary tour! Would be interesting to know the story about the "french" one...

    tyboogie: I think the english name is roedeer. I like the cinema or theatre seats although I think it might have been better without the bit behind the last row at the bottom of the pic- attracts the eye too much imo.

    wynd: nice bw work, the winter ones are probably my favourites.

    molested cow: There were some that I thought were pretty boring but you made up with it well with a number of beautifull ones too!

    Boring to be ill and indoors all day long when the recent activity in tis thread have made me want to go outside with my camera. Tried to play a bit with the sunlight coming through the windows though:

    tyboogie - Awesome. dsb23 and the theater man.
    Wynd - Great stuff.
    bear - Nice shadow work. Good macros too.

    I haven't been posting much because I am working hard for the money and hard on a new portfolio.

    See.

    Phil: I like the one with you drawing and the bottom one the most.

    Ryecatcher: That lone tulip is nice.

    Christos: I'm sure nobody will mind I also feel like an amateur that only sort of know what I'm doing half of the time. Is that your finger? looks scary....


    Today's little walk- didn't get much good from it except some fresh air.

    it's been a few months since I looked at this thread, and I must say, wow! Very intense, lots of great work in here.

    tegehel- your providence cemetary pulled a couple of smiles out of me. I can't say I've been in that one specifically, but it looks familiar. A good number of my relatives do live/have lived in the Prov/Pawtucket area so I have 24 years of tourist's experience with the gray winters there (and for some reason, I think we walked through more than one cemetary where we didn't know any dead people).

    I'm not the photographer that many of you guys are, more of a snap-shooter for reference for paintings. But here are 3 pics taken today:

    I love being able to step out onto my back porch and see sunsets like these.
