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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Showery spells

by Kate

High Street Exeter in the rain,
it seems to be raining all the time but there is still beauty in the weather even if it would seem sensible to be at home in the warm.

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.

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)

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

Perth City dusk

by DarkElf

This the City of Perth skyline at dusk Anno Domini 2013...

after a long time i finally ventured out to capture the updated skyline with the new BHP Billiton building joining the line up - that's the wide building and the first on the left from the three highest skyscrapers in the middle...

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.

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.
