Are You Enjoying Your City’s Region?

There is a community in Providence that takes full advantage of the city’s proximity to the sea. All too often, I am lucky to get a call at 5:00 AM from someone in the group who is heading down for a pre-work surf. Getting two hours worth of surfing in before hitting the office at 9 AM makes living in Providence special. My question to you on this Friday evening is how are you going to enjoy your city’s regional amenities this weekend?

A big thanks to friends Damian Ewens and Stephanie Ewens for producing and editing the above film. I am looking forward to shooting more of these experimental films this spring (hopefully in warmer water). Also featured in the film is Clay Rockefeller and Carter Blackwell… they kept the pace for the paddle while I brought up the rear. You can find out more about Providence Dawn Patrol here and the Get Lively Experiment here.

Now get out there and enjoy your city’s region! Have a nice weekend.

First Watercolor of the Summer Session

sewens_20090426_middletown_016One of the amazing advantages of living in Providence is that at noon on a Sunday one can decide to go to the beach and in less then an hour be sitting by the ocean. This past Sunday I was reminded of this geographic amenity when I went down to Newport. The photo above was taken by my talented friend Stephanie Ewens. The painting is of friends on the rocks, enjoying the sun. Summer is almost here, what amenities are within reach of your city?
