Chapel View is a commercial developmentt project that is and has been on-going in Cranston, Rhode Island (where I work) for over the last ten years. Located where the state used to have several boarding schools for delinquent children (the shells of these older buildings are incorporated into the development) the center-piece of the project was the rehabilitation and extension of the old chapel on the hill into a trendy 5-star restaurant. This chapel was built using stone from the fields it is built on, and this legacy continues: all the stone walls that are in and surround the complex are also built from this same material.
Recently, Lyn wanted to go shopping in the area and like every good husband who is invited along on such adventures, I begged off to do something (anything!) else. For me it was take photos.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, She Of Great Taste In All Things But Men, who does most of the photo selection. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
I could make some claim to trying to be very artistic with this shot, but the truth is proof of the rule: never move your camera in the middle of a long shot, even one you didn’t know you were taking.
