Providence, the capital city of the teeny state of Rhode Island in the United States. Lemme share this little city with you as well as prepare myself to remember it before I leave it after my college graduation...

State Capital

What's a state capital city without the State House Building?

I apologise for the 'crap' in the foreground - I was in a hurry to be somewhere else, but the blue sky and bright sunlight just convinced me that I had to take the photo right then! Maybe I should go in and tour the place before I leave this summer. I've been to the state house building in Lansing, MI which was pretty nice!

Spring Break BBQ

I was at home all day, and so today's photo is taken from my apartment. Some guys (well, my neighbors whom I've never met) from the adjacent building were having a BBQ in the 'backyard' late afternoon (can tell from the sunset lighting). Haha... I secretly took this photo not wanting them to know they were being 'captured'. And so you see a strip of the blinds on the bottom of the photo.

Castle-ish church

The grey-castle-looking building to the left is a church that sits a block away from where I live. I haven't been inside, being too shy to step in and see the relationship between exterior and interior. I see ceremonial gatherings, hear choirs singing, or see informal/social events when I pass by from time to time. But the architecture has quite a contrast with its surrounding buildings, mostly of which are New England styled apartment buildings. The church has a... not exactly medieval feel... but certainly something something non-New England like. What do you think?

Welcome to Providence

Hi! Welcome to my first place. After learning about the DailyPhoto blog by accident, I've become hooked onto this 'club'. It's amazing to see such a range of photos from around the world. And now, I want to share a piece of where I have lived for the past three years of my life.

So the first photo to share is that of downtown Providence. As you can see, there aren't that many buildings in the city as it is one that has only recently begun developing. The building in the middle which appears to form a pointed top is the Bank of America building (formerly the Fleet Bank building before being bought by B of Amer). The buildings to its left are office buildings, which I unfortunately do not know the name of. To the right is the Biltmore Hotel, which has a red neon sign lit up on the roof at night.
