city of light

P1050242

Yes, yes-- I know. No one would ever take "city of light" crown away from Paris, France-- no one could. And yet, I must tell you-- Providence?

Let's just say, the sun is not immune to her come hither energies.

Sun. Sun. Sun. And we're not even going to talk about the sunsets--- just a pretty little town that seems to be a pretty well-kept secret.

Yesterday, the dogs and I went out in search of yellow, which as it turns out, wasn't hard to do. Of course, it meant peering around all the lovey dovey couples entwined everywhere we went--- oh, spring-- no one can resist you least of all youth which is so susceptible to bliss.

What do the dogs do while I stand about and shoot? Why they sit good as gold and appear as puzzled as first-year algebra students. Surely they must wonder what on earth I am looking at.

DAISY: Really? Trashcans?

HENRY: Cut her some slack. She doesn't get out much.

  2. Oh, thank you! It is overcast today after a night of rain dripping on the roof. Great way sleep, but the mud we woke up to...ugh. I have had to have the lights on in the house all day. No sunbeams for Franklin and I to fight over. Your rays brightened my day, and I swear it is brighter outside now.

  3. I liked living in Providence...well, I liked it better when I lived within walking distance of Hope Street, I have some unsavory things I could share about the other area of Providence I lived in! But truly, I loved living in the city. The hard part of just visiting is not often getting time to explore it lazily, so thanks for taking us along. (PS. I like when you make the dogs talk.)

  8. As always, I love the photos, and the light is especially enchanting, even for trash cans.

  9. The light there is truly magical. I'm always amazed at the copious amounts of light that seem to glow wherever...you...are...HEY!

  10. I still believe the source of so much sunlight isn't coming from the sky ... fellow readers, haven't you noticed wherever Elizabeth goes, the light follows?

    Just saying ...

    Oh, and the dogs are perplexed as to why you would turn you camera upon another subject when THEY are right there and ready for a close-up. Woof duh woof ;)
