The other day I did this sketch in Providence before work..my usual routine. When I get to work, I scan in my daily sketch and post it on my Flickr page. There is a lot wrong with my sketch, at least things I would do differently if I had more time to do it again... and then I got an email from my longtime friend Richard Benjamin. Dick is not only a great photographer but THE photographer for all things Rhode Island and all of New England. He sent me this image he shot back in June. We must have been at the exact same point and saw the same view and responded accordingly.
All I can say is, Richard you have great taste. . .

Plan on staying there a while - his images are stunning.
Good work. I prefer your drawing for its imperfections. This took some time. The photo may have been a lucky shot and over with in 30 seconds. Who sees anything in such a short time as it takes to record something with a photo? You stuck around to look closely.
Actually if you take a look at Dicks site..you will understand that he really understands the scene as well, and takes his time in scouting the location, composition and developing the image. In this case Dick is the professional and I am the hack. . . .
