Federal Hill Demolition
It was a lousy day in Providence Rhode Island today so I decided to walk to my assignment, which was to go to “the nuthouse “ and photograph a lovely woman by the name of Colleen Conley. That’s going to get under the skin of some of you progressives but I’m telling you she was a total sweetheart.On the way I noticed a yellow triple-decker getting torn down so I figured I’d grab a few frames. I wasn’t going to work too too hard but it was in my neighborhood and it’s not the type of thing you see every day so click click click I went.
All of a sudden this strombalone comes out of nowhere:
“ Who the F are you? Where you from? Get the F off my property”
I may or may not have been on his property but don’t worry about that.
Now, I am convinced that he was irate enough that he must have been up to no good. How’s that for my journalistic integrity?
I mentioned the whole fiasco to some friends and the only thing we can come up with is that he thought I had something to do with Forgotten Providence. I don’t have anything to do with Forgotten Providence.
You know what though? If that’s what made this A-hole so angry (in my head) then they must be doing something right. So then, I am throwing the full political sway of ryantonaty.wordpress.com behind their efforts.
So grab your camera and get the F out there and record some of those abandoned houses that likely adorn our neighborhoods.
Or better yet, hire a professional.
