We – not the editorial we but the family we, as in me, Victoria and Billy – visited PVDfest in downtown Providence this afternoon – whoa, Nellie! a lot going on! Downtown was jamming. More different types of people than you could shake a stick at, and all enjoying themselves to the hilt. And there were some mighty fine buildings, too, and sometimes my lens was unable to resist the urge to pan them – not to pan them, for gosh sake!, to pan on them!
So there are a number of still shots and then 12 videos running mostly between 30 and 60 seconds each, topped by one lasting a minute and 56 seconds, which was of the irresistible scene flowing past the window of Blake’s, where we have a developing tradition of situating ourselves to watch PVDfest (and its prior incarnations) roll by. I have placed the videos in the order I shot them. The first several are of the scene on Westminster Street, then a couple on Dorrance Street near Kennedy Plaza, then a few from our table inside Blake’s, where we had a ringside seat. And finally a couple taking in the view on Washington Street. Pop through them and see what we saw – second only to being there.
