Looking to the Sky


My husband published in a conference recently in Providence RI. I took the chance to tag along. We drove there on Sunday and drove back home on Tuesday. On Monday I took a walk arround downtown searching for a bookstore (where I bought a weaving book from 1906). It was a difficult shop to find as I kept looking upwards at all the incredible architecture in downtown Providence.

Sculpture by Lee Jae Hyo (I was able to find the artist online!) And the rest of the time I was pretty much looking up.

I was taking these pictures from across the street to get the widest field of view. There were stained glass pieces in every arch. I couldn’t see the details on the day, but I can enlarge the mostly blurry ones (the focus of the camera was always higher above them) and pretty much see heraldic looking stuff; lions, eagles, shields. Except for the one I did have in focus. The guy in his underwear!
