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.

Where I live...

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.

Windy day on the beach

by Doug

Taken a couple of weeks ago while walking on the beach the storms were on the way back in and causing the waves to rise. This I suppose is what I love most about walking on the beach in the winter in Burnham, just the occasional person a crazy as me to enjoy the wind and peace that only the beach at winter gives. I don't have a problem with the kids and holidaymakers enjoying it in the summer as long as I can have it in the winter (and perhaps a little less rain to give me time to enjoy it !).

I have put this image up for the Aminus theme "The Place I Live". Burnham-on-Sea's iconic lighthouse on stilts that stands on the beach at the edge of the town and our great expanse of beach

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.

Esplanade Baghdadi

by Benkirane Thami

C'est une place centrale pour qui veut accéder à la médina de Fès (en arrivant, par exemple, de la ville nouvelle). Cette esplanade immense se trouve à proximité du lycée (Moulay Idriss) où j'ai préparé mon baccalauréat. Elle est également attenante au parc "Jnane Sbil" et à plusieurs portes monumentales emblématiques de la médina. Elle offre une vue dégagée sur les premiers contreforts de la chaîne montagneuse du Rif et en particulier sur le mont Zalagh. On peut également embrasser du regard la colline des Mérinides, ses ruines et son cimetière chaulé qui s'étend à perte de vie et qui nous interpelle tous les jours en nous disant d'une voix blanche comme le silence :" A bientôt !..."
A l'approche de la fin de l'après-midi, cette place fort appréciée par la population humble de la médina s'anime et s'agite (halqa, saltimbanques, conteurs, musiciens, gargottes...etc.)
Il n' y a pas une semaine où je n'y passe pas! Car mes pas me ramènent immanquable amant à l'espace intramuros de cette médina qui m'a vu naître et pour laquelle je voue un indéfectible attachement :
Né à Fès
Fasciné
Et per fas et nefas
Amants aimantés.

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.

Amish Neighbors

by RBL

This is the place I live ... Oxford, Pennsylvania. We live in the country surrounded by Amish Farms. We see the Amish everyday ... at the store, at the bank, working their farms or just traveling down the road. We live in a place where two worlds inter twine with each other in harmony. Israel pictured here; is working his farm ... we buy produce from him and his wife, Naomi and we also get firewood delivered from Stephen, another Amish fellow. It is nice having the Amish as our neighbors. (Photo taken in the Summer)

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

Base of the Murmur trestle

by Frances Berry

Dudley Park. Snow day!

This is the base of what is known as the "Murmur" trestle in downtown Athens, Georgia. It was featured on the back of the band R.E.M.'s album by the same title. It's falling down. It's gotten worse since we moved here 7 years ago. Some folks are still in the process of helping it remain.

Texas Bluebonnets

by Tim

Here is my entry in the Place I Live community event. This is what parts of the Texas prairie look like in April. Some of my earliest memories are of these flowers. Springtime has always been associated with bluebonnets and is an annual reminder of rebirth and resurrection of heart, mind, and soul!

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.

Kinder Scout

by Ainsley

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.

* 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 ...

Home sweet home

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!
