I was in Providence, Rhode Island on a Sunday afternoon at the end of June for a street photography jaunt. I've only been to Providence one other time and that was for their Waterfire event that they hold a few times a year. Click here for more info on Waterfire, definitely worth a trip.
On this day I wandered through the older, more artsy area of the city and then over to the river. I will post photos from the riverfront in another blog post. There's a more historic area of the city that I may explore on the next visit. It was too hot on this day to do more than the 3.5 miles of walking that I did.
Miles walked: 3.5
Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1 Markii
Lenses: m.Zuiko 12-100mm PRO
Nice mural but on a more careful look, I was amazed that all those "windows" on the back of the building are not real!
A little closer look.
I love brick and cobblestone streets.
RUDELY elegant jewelry! LOL
On the window of the rude jewelry store. :)
I wanted to explore The Arcade. The Arcade is a national historic landmark. It was the nation’s oldest indoor shopping mall! The first floor now features newly designed retail shops and restaurants, while the second and third floors are home to residents of 48 micro lofts.
How it looked way back when.
How it looks now.
Vintage store. I think I owned that jacket in the 1980's! I couldn't get enough of the little alligator back then.
I love the title of this book!!
In the Lovecraft store.
Back outside to explore more of Providence.
Has a bit of a Boston feel to it.
Getting to know you!
I liked the clock.
There are some fantastic murals throughout this area.
Remnants from a Gay Pride event the night before.
Tiffany!! Of course this made me think of the hilarious scene in the movie "TED" where Donny (who kidnaps Ted) is in his livingroom dancing to Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now". LOL
This was a powerful area of art. If you're on a touch screen you can zoom in to read.
The first of two #PeopleLeavingDrinks! Welcome. Extra style points for the can plus cup.
You know I love a good reflection!
Words to live by.
I think more remnants from the Gay Pride events.
I loved the pipe. My Grandfather smoked a pipe. To this day I still love the smell of pipe tobacco. Brings back nice memories of Grandpa.
We've come full circle. Just around the bend is The Arcade.
Turns out all that artwork is on the remnants of a building. There's nothing behind that wall.
Ok, fine. I thought at first it said Megan. Close!
My final #PeopleLeavingDrinks for the day. It's a good one.
In my next blog post, I'll explore the area around the river and capital.
Until the next Magic Metro.
