Providence, Rhode Island

 

The place where I began almost sixty years ago.  Some of these images are from when I still lived there.  The snow covered roofs are from a house across the street from me on Carrington Avenue on the East Side.  Tillinghast Place is in Barrington and is a part of RISD known as "the farm".  The last piece is from Benefit Street, a series of 18th century buildings which had captivated my imagination from childhood.
