***

Spent some time this afternoon along South Main Street, parallel to the Providence River between downtown and College Hill. Had camera, did shoot. To set the scene, in the shot at the top of this post, looking north along South Main, Old Stone Bank and the Joseph Brown House are left of center, with the tower of the Providence County Superior Courthouse rising at top center beyond the dome of Old Stone.

About David Brussat

For a living, I edit the writing of some of the nation's leading architects, urbanists and design theorists. This blog was begun in 2009 as a feature of the Providence Journal, where I was on the editorial board and wrote a weekly column of architecture criticism for three decades. Architecture Here and There fights the style wars for classical architecture and against modern architecture, no holds barred. My freelance writing and editing on that topic and others addresses issues of design and culture locally and globally. I am a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, and a member of the board of the New England chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, which bestowed an Arthur Ross Award on me in 2002. I work from Providence, R.I., where I live with my wife Victoria, my son Billy and our cat Gato. If you would like to invest your prose with even more style and clarity, please email me at my consultancy, dbrussat@gmail.com, or call 401.351.0457. Testimonial: "Your work is so wonderful - you now enter my mind and write what I would have written." - Nikos Salingaros, mathematician at the University of Texas, architectural theorist and author of many books.

    Great shots! I see you like the dome of the Old Stone, as I do. I found a great vantage in the yard of the Hopkins House museum. Perfect elevation for an across shot.
