Visual notes from Providence

Several times a week I break out of Davol Square around midday, grab the camera and head off downtown, usually stopping at the RISD Museum; a great place to lose oneself:
Juliette Recamier in the center -- Gaetan Vestris on the left side of the wall
Coincidence, perhaps but Juliette and Gaetan are buried just a few meters away form each other in Montmartre Cemetery, Paris.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

In the wake of Nemo. . . 

. . . we learn what the motto is of the city highway services
