Threads: The Place Where I Live

Layout: Grid Large

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.

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:)

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.

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.

A walk where I live

by Anna.C

La Rochelle 2014 Plage de la Concurrence

Version N&B - BW version

C'est là où je vis, dans ma belle ville de La Rochelle ouverte sur l'Océan ! C'est l'endroit préféré des Rochelais pour la promenade familiale dominicale, c'est le lieu de rendez-vous des joggeurs, et là aussi où l'on vient voir les tempêtes en hiver et à la plage en été.

C'est ma promenade quotidienne, en toute saison, seule ou avec mon chéri là où je viens me ressourcer, m'asseoir sur un banc, prendre un peu le soleil, pour rêver devant les bateaux, là où je viens contempler la mer, la lumière et le ciel toujours changeants, là où je puise mon inspiration photographique.
C'est mon littoral, mon Océan Atlantique. C'est ma respiration. C'est là où je vis.

*******
It is where I live, in my beautiful city of La Rochelle opened on the Ocean!
It is the favorite place of people for the Sunday family walk, It is the meeting point for the joggers, and the place where we come to see storms in winter and at the beach in summer.

It's my daily walk, in every seasons, alone or with my darling, where I come to get fresh ideas, to sit down on a bench, to take a little sunbath, to dream in front of boats, where I come to contemplate the sea, the light and the sky always changeable, where I draw my photographic inspiration.
It's my coast, my Atlantic Ocean. It's my breath. It's where I live.

Cape of Storms

by dobbino

Cape Town is the place where I live. It's one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with a wide variety of natural beauty - Table Mountain, the sea, the vineyards - the list just goes on and on. Yet amongst the beauty, is the danger, and many a ship has ended up stranded like these two, beacuse of the treacherous storms along our coastline.

The woman of the house

by Marj

Dona Celia is everyone's Mother, she is gentle and caring reaching out with warmth and sincerity. When we first met I was welcomed into the meeting and eating area of her home and invited to lunch. Over the 30 years that I have known her there have been many conversations, meals shared and advice given. For me Dona Celia is the feeling of home.

Where Music and People Still Matter!

by Jim Juliano

This Music Store in Portland, Oregon was opened in 1969 by a guy named Don MacLeod. It was well known as THE place to find cool European imports and other hard to find LPs. It is now owned and run by a guy named Terry Currier, who among many things, spearheaded a west coast movement in 1993 to battle a record industry push to ban the sale of used merchandise. The face of the record industry on this issue was country singer Garth Brooks who publicly demanded that stores only sell new copies of his records. Despite the fact that used merchandise made up less than 5% of the store's sales, Currier stood on the principle that retailers and consumers should be allowed to buy and sell legal merchandise as they saw fit and held a Garth Brooks BBQ at the store which to this day does not stock any Brooks merchandise. And of course in the long run the record industry lost this greed based initiative.

Music Millennium is a quintessential Portland place to me. It champions local musicians, holds many in store concerts, and continues to inspire new generations to discover new art. Currently, it is great to see the return of vinyl. Walls covered in a lovely mosaic of LP jackets adorn the reborn section of the store. It connects me to my early life in San Jose, California where I spent many hours at Tower Records reading the backs of LP jackets, flipping through posters, and discovering the ever evolving world of popular music by hanging around and talking to people. You just don't get that on iTunes. . . So, if you ever make it to Portland, put SE 32nd and Burnside in your GPS and check out this wonderful place. But if you are far away, the web address is www.musicmillennium.com

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.

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!

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.
