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.

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.

Here I am happy

by Shiva

My home, my refuge ----
from ....... the outside world
where I am surrounded with nearly intact nature - where I can hike with Shiva without carrying her toiletries (shovel and broom), where I can still drink water from the creek - breathe fresh air - nearly noise free

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.

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.

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.

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.

downtown

by António Pires

Portugal. Lisbon.

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).

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.

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

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.

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.
