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.
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.

Aminus3 is celebrating it's 10-year anniversary, and ask us to post a photo about the place where we live. I joined April, 2009, and have not missed a day since.
It was hard to pick just one photo to represent the place I live to help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Aminus3. I chose this photo of a wild gray fox sitting in the field behind our house because I so enjoy seeing the foxes almost every day or night. Even though we live in a large city, there is a wooded area and field behind our house, and we get to see foxes, possums, rabbits, raccoons, skunks, and once in awhile even a bobcat or coyote, plus lots of squirrels and birds.
A special view which is never the same as days and seasons change.
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:)
I live on the northside of Brisbane in Queensland Australia near a large lake with lots of wild birds, and great view point to the west for catching sunsets, this is the Place I Live
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.
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.
I like the Land where I live,and as a female Photographer.

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)
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.
Lisbon downtown (a baixa) was built at the end of the 18th century, after the almost complete destruction of the city by the 1755 earthquake. Although some hurts already exist, the architectural style is thus fairly homogeneous.
The urban mesh is geometrical (the streets cross at right angles), which is a common pattern in the USA for instance. The Bairro Alto quarter follows the same pattern but the houses were of a lower class. That contrasts with the patterns of Alfama and Mouraria quarters whose urban patterns (not the houses) date back to the Moors dominance of the city (from the 8th century up to 1147).

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
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!

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!
