Recently, my wife and I spent a couple of nights in Providence, Rhode Island, and we were able to see their famous WaterFire program conducted on average about every other weekend from May 26 to October 6. It is an awesome spectacle as nearly 80 mini-bonfires are lit on the city’s three rivers, to the accompaniment of beautiful music, dancing, and crowds of enthusiastic spectators. Image

Food and drink are readily available for purchase, and crowds are enthusiastic and also well-mannered. The program points out that “WaterFire was created by Barnaby Evans in 1994 as an art installation to revitalize the urban landscape of Providence and has now become one of Rhode Islands most popular tourist attractions.”

They often have dance lessons, concerts, mimes, and other sorts of entertainment. It was really a great time, and I got some really interesting photos, some of which I will post here, and others will be posted on my various photography websites.

Should you wish to visit WaterFire yourself, there are still four more performance: August 18, September 15, September 29, and October 6. Waterfire.org is the website. It’s a terrific evening—and the WaterFire itself and many other activities associated with it are FREE!

Brant Point Lighthouse

Brant Point Lighthouse

Looking back, I realized that it was just two years ago that my wife and I took a  mini-vacation at Nantucket Island, off the coast of Massachusetts.  It was a wonderfully romantic three days, filled with  sightseeing, shopping, and photography (also some real relaxation).  This is the Brant Point Lighthouse, the second oldest lighthouse in America (1746).  It is also the lowest lighthouse in New England, only 26 feet above sea level.  This shot was taken at 6:26 p.m., and it was pretty chilly out there for mid-April.  I shot this lighthouse for more than two hours as the light kept changing.
