Threads: The Place Where I Live

Might be my neighborhood, my town, perhaps it is a cultural celebration, a special food dish, or maybe a simple tradition that speaks volumes to me and my family.

Around the world, we find comfort, familiarity and home in many places.

Place I Live 2014

by Ruthiebear

What defines the place I live is the Delaware River. I live at the very spot where George Washington crossed this river, Christmas night, 1776 and turned the "tide" of the Revolutionary War. These images capture the marker in the park, and the re-enactment which takes place every Christmas Day. Where I live captures the spirit of the American people, where today our community still embraces our history and celebrates our heritage.

First snow in November, captured in Quebec, Canada. This is my home, surrounded with beautiful nature astonishing all year around.

That rain ⊙f sun

by Karine*Mazloumian

I love to be there, whatever the season.
Writing, reading, sharing and dreaming by my fav canal in town.
Feeling the air and the light changes.
Observing boats and seagulls, swans, sparrows and passers-by (another kind of bird).

Along that river bank of the north-east of Paris my Nikon & I enjoy a lot.

* Trepitjar la rajola de la flor a Barcelona

by Adela Fonts

Prefereixo situar la meva vida com a fotògraf entre els camins del món ... Jo no vull tancar-me en un mateix espai ... amagada entre les persones que no volen entendre que la vida és més que respirar cada dia. Necessito respirar com tothom, però fer-ho amb plena llibertat. La llibertat de vida, de pensament i d'expressió..., al costat dels altres que comparteixen el meu temps i la meva passió per l'art fotogràfic... i aquí mateix!
La fotografia oberta a qualsevol persona que viu i respira el dia a dia sense dogmatismes i prejudicis absurds ... Jo crec que això ha de ser possible ... Mai he deixat de creure-ho ... i no ho faré ara, quan he viscut gran part de la meva vida ......

I'd rather put my life as a photographer between the ways of the world ... I do not want to lock myself in the same place ... hidden among people who do not want to understand that life is more than breath every day. I need to breathe like everyone else, but do so freely. Freedom of life, thought and expression ... alongside others who share my time and my passion for art and photographic ... right here!

Photography open to anyone who lives and breathes every day without dogmatism and prejudice absurd ... I think this should be possible ... I have never stopped believing it ... and I will not now, when I lived most of my life ...

The Mermaids over Weeki Wachee Springs...

* * * I chose this previously posted image to depict the area in which I live.

The city of Weeki Wachee was established in 1966. With a population of a dozen or so, it is easily the least populated city in the Tampa Bay area!

The city was incorporated to put Weeki Wachee on road maps and to protect and preserve the roadside attraction Weeki Wachee Springs, which premiered its first underwater theater show in 1947. The spring is a natural wonder in itself, with more than 117 million gallons of clear, fresh, 72-degree water bubbling up out of its subterranean caverns daily.
The park is now owned by the state of Florida and belongs to the state park system.

A Room with a View (III)

by Alfredo J. Martiz J.

Part of a series of photos I made at home, exploring with the atmospheric effect of light and shadows and their interplay with architectural components and surrounding spaces.

We used to live in an apartment in the center of Panama City, but since the end of 2012 we moved to a wooden house in a place known as Diablo Heights, close to the Balboa Port. Being an architect, and having an interest in the perception of space in different projects, living in this house has been a very special experience for me.

Lake Needwood

by Elaine Hancock

Lake Needwood is a 75 acre reservoir located just east of Rockville. It is about a 10 minute drive from my house. I like to go there to sit and reflect and to take pictures during every season. I have a lot of fond memories of taking my boys to Lake Needwood for picnics and fishing when they were small.

La cathédrale de Strasbourg - Strasbourg Cathedral

by Flagrant-declic

Vue sur la cathédrale de Strasbourg depuis la cour du Palais Rohan. Strasbourg est ma ville natale, elle est située en Alsace sur le Rhin qui fait la frontière avec l'Allemagne.

View of Strasbourg Cathedral from the courtyard of the Palais Rohan. Strasbourg is my hometown, it is situated in Alsace on the Rhine which makes the border with Germany.

The place where I live:)

by J.R.

Shintoshin is trying to compete for the tourist trade with many on the different cities on the Island, so this colorful street is designed to attract the late night party crowd, and tourist looking for a little action:) There is no parking on the street so most come by taxi, or the nearby monorail. There is off street parking but usually it ain't cheap:)

So I have entered this in to the place I live 2014. This is the Peak District. A natural beauty in Derbyshire. It's definitely a place to reflect on and although not part of my every day life, it's a special place to go and unwind and blow off the cobwebs.

Voulant participer au Thème Photographique « Place I Live », très vite, je me suis rendu compte de la difficulté, trop d’endroits, trop de moments, mon choix était difficile.
Alors, j’ai décidé de vous présenter cette allégorie.
En effet, quelque soit le lieux, quelque soit l’instant, quelque soit l’alentour; à la réflexion, une évidence s’imposait, la constance de notre couple, ma présence proche à Mon Amour.
Dans ma vie, je recherche en permanence sa proximité, auprès d’elle la lumière se fait, à ses côtés une douce chaleur m’enveloppe, avec elle les briques du mur de la vie quotidienne prennent une autre couleur, plus supportable.
Oui, la place où je vis, c’est près d’elle; même si physiquement je suis éloigné, c’est à ses côtés que je suis toujours.
Voilà, j’espère que cette photo vous conviendra pour le thème proposé.

P.S. Bien sûr, cette photo pré-méditée fut réalisée avec elle; le sujet "les ombres" choisi par moi; l’endroit, le moment, choisis ensemble.
**********
Wanting to participate in the Photographic Theme, "Place I Live", I realized the difficulty, too many places, excess of moments, my choice was difficult.

Then, I decided to present you this allegory.

Indeed, about either places, about or the moment, about or surrounding; on second thought, an obvious fact was imperative, the constancy of our couple, my close presence upon My Love.
In my life, I look for permanently its closeness, with her the light is made, by her side a soft heat wraps me, with her the bricks of the wall of the everyday life take another color, more bearable.

Yes, the place where I live, it is near her; even if physically I am taken away, it is by her side whom I am always.
Here we are, I hope that this photo will suit you for the proposed theme.

P.S. Of course, this deliberate photo was realized with her; the subject "Shadows" chosen by me; the place, the moment, chosen together.

Down memory lane

by Stephen

Cool street art in a laneway behind the Ainslie Shops. I grew up in this area and currently live not far away.

Canberra draws much of its character from its suburban shops. Ainslie has one of the oldest neighbourhood centres. The idea of a local community focus is still crucial to the planning of our suburbs. You will often find shopfronts facing or surrounding a small plaza area with shade trees and public art. Places such as Ainslie typically offer a small supermarket, café, restaurant and perhaps a wine bar. You can also expect to find a pharmacy and one or two other services.

The challenge for these local centres is to compete with the mega shopping malls. As a result, in the suburbs, there are empty stores and even derelict places. However, on the positive side, other local sites have revitalized their appearance. Just try and find a car space in one of the more popular spots!

A recent idea has also been Parties at the Shops. It was the focus for a series of mine last year - as you can see here.

Le Grand Silence Blanc

by mo.langel

Etang de la Gruère - Jura - Janvier 2014

C'est ici que je vis!

Enfin pas tout à fait, ma maison n'est pas très éloignée de ce lieu idyllique que je chéris depuis de nombreuses années " l'étang de la Gruère "!

Je viens régulièrement me balader dans cette magnifique réserve naturelle, en toute saison et souvent par n'importe quel temps, mais surtout très tôt dans la matinée. A cette heure matinale, j'ai l'étang pour moi toute seule, je peux m'imprégner de son silence, de ses parfums et de son immense beauté.

A chacune de mes visites je lui découvre un nouveau charme, une autre lumière, différentes teintes que j'essaie de capturer et de reproduire par mes photos.

Un merveilleux espace de quiétude et de contemplation!
