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.

  1. I would thrown a rock at him and then took his picture. However, it is a good story.

  2. Good thing I wasn’t with ya cousin because I would’ve definitely said something right back at that fat meatball to put him right over the top. I feel as if I’m at my best and thrive in those kinds of situations. From there, I’d have to use his face as a speedbag AND eat his lunch for him if he was really looking to get served with a shot at the title. Then we’d simply walk victoriously off in the sunset to the nearest watering hole (with a few tumbleweeds blowing by, of course). Go RTC!!!!

  3. The ‘Dude’ is not to be messed with.

  4. Hi Ryan
