"Experience join'd with common sense, To mortals is a providence."
~ Matthew Green
We drove into Providence RI as the sun was setting. We had a plan of wandering the downtown core until we found some place to eat; when all we found were closed office buildings piercing the dusky sky cut into grids of concrete pillars by one way streets that remained abandoned.
I saw this building as we crossed one of the many bridges from one side of downtown to the other and pulled a U-turn by careening the wrong way down a one way street to get back to a shooting position.
I think it’s a coal burning power plant. Either way the shot required me to shoot setting the camera to bulb and counting off the seconds. One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi and so on till I hit fifty. High tech approach I tell you, and nothing like a mangy guy with long hair mumbling to himself on stretch of bridge at night.
