Last Saturday “Doors Open RI” produced a citywide open house event where free access had been arranged to 20 places and spaces within the city limits. A few months back I attended my first Doors Open event at the Sons of Jacob Synagogue. This organization provides access, to otherwise unavailable sites, to photograph and experience history and architecture of our current and past community within our capital city.
Fortunately hurricane or now tropical storm Jose which had decided to park itself off our coastline headed northeast on this very morning which led to clear skies and mid seventies temperatures. I was not planning to visit all twenty sites as the expanse of trying to move about to all the locations seemed unwieldy to me so I picked several that I felt would be interesting to visit and photograph. One venue I was most interested in seeing was the Atlantic Mills so I saved that one for my last visit of the day. Poor planning on my part as by the time I was to go to Olneyville I was exhausted. Nonetheless, I had a very enjoyable day visiting some planned and some not planned venues.
The following are a few images of views that presented themselves in front of my camera lens. Hope you enjoy them.
