Boston

Seagull

Chilling in Boston Harbor.


Dark Alley

I enjoy alleyways at night. Does that make me a creep?

You bet it does.


Fireworks over the Charles

Summer is here! Fun times are on the way. This was from Pops Goes the Fourth 2008 on the esplanade (I was on the Mass Ave bridge, but who’s counting). Looking through all the pictures from that night I remembered it wasn’t great for photographing, mainly because there was no wind whatsoever.

You may thing that’s a good thing when it comes to fireworks, but not when all the smoke just sits there and blocks all your good shots. A steady breeze is always best, or just shoot early on in the show, like so.

Custom House Tower

As promised, the followup post to yesterday’s photo.

One thing that always bothered me about that clock is that the hands are not lit up. At night the thing is completely useless. Pretty, but useless.


Harbor Lights

Not long after the Rose Kennedy Greenway opened along Boston’s harborfront did a group of artists light up the skyline as never before seen. In addition to illuminating various buildings such as the Custom House clock tower (which will be tomorrow’s post, so stay tuned), several themed sculpture installations were also seen throughout the Greenway.

Just above the bench here, emitting steam, is one of them, as seen in front of the Boston Harbor Hotel (a great place to stay by the way, fabulous room service), with a series of spotlights as a backdrop.


Congratulations

The Celtics have made it to the NBA Finals after winning last night’s game.

This photo is from the last time the C’s made it to the Finals in 2008.


Yellow Flower

This is the fastest I think I’ve ever taken and posted a photo.

I took this about an hour ago while on a walk with Lauren.


Full Moon Rising

Not long ago I posted this image of the sun rising over Boston Harbor. I didn’t want the moon to get left out.


Mass Pike at Night

Taken on one of my nighttime photo walks with Kat. Four second exposure, handheld. Not too shabby.


Sunrise

One night when I was still living in the North End, I couldn’t really get to sleep, just wasn’t tired for whatever reason. Around 2 a.m. I had an idea. Why not photograph the sunrise? I’ve never done it before, and it was only a couple hours away. I took a brief nap, grabbed my gear and started walking down Atlantic Ave. towards the waterfront.

I set up behind the Moakley Federal Courthouse facing Logan airport, figuring who the hell would be there at 4 o’clock in the morning to bug me. It was pretty cool standing there snapping away as the sky got brighter and brighter til the sun finally broke the horizon. If memory serves me right, I headed home around 6:30, just in time to see the city start to wake up as I’m ready to crawl back into bed. I haven’t photographed a sunrise since, and judging by how tired I am now, won’t be anytime soon. But one day I’ll do it again. In the meantime, sleep.
