Boston at Sunset

New Followers

Google+ has been crazy lately. I broke 200,000 followers (see SocialStatistics.com and there are all kinds of new people discovering this kind of photography, which is pretty exciting. I can barely keep up with it all… I did start a post to have people write a little bit about themselves. It capped out at 500 comments very quickly. But you can see all sorts of people on there… very interesting to see the volume and variety!

Introduce Yourself!

Since I did it there, I thought I should do it here too! I know MANY of you by now, obviously… and I think the rest of the community here has gotten to know you a bit through your comments as well. But, why not take this opportunity to say hello and tell us a little about yourself. Feel free to include links to your website, your blog, your google+, or whatever you like! :)

Daily Photo – Boston at Sunset

Boston is great, and I am sad I’ve only spent a short amount of time there. On this evening, I walked along the waterfront here to look at all the various angles and light levels. They were all good! That’s a sign of a good city when it is hard to take a bad photo of it!

The Firemen in Boston

Early one morning I went walking around the streets of Boston and I found this firehouse. They were looking at me a little suspiciously while taking photos, but they let me be… I think they could tell that I thought firehouses and firemen were pretty cool. Firemen can see that kinda thing in people!

Walking Along the Waterfront in Boston

I have not spent enough time in Boston! I really need to explore the city more, but I tried to make the most of it while I was there.

One evening, about an hour from sunset, I found one of the prettiest waterfronts and started walking along it to see what I could find. After only a few moments, I came to this nice little area of greenery, benches, and a nice place to hang out and appreciate the colors of Boston. After only spending a short amount of time there, I now see why people like it so much!

Downtown Boston from my Hotel Room

Usually, I like to sneak up to the roof of buildings to get the best shots.  But, every now and then, my best plans are foiled by locked doors and surly security guards.  My charms fail at some point, and I am stuck shooting out of my hotel room window. The only advantage is that I don’t have to freeze in 10 degree howling wind while waiting for the light to hit its apogee of beauty.

This was just about the prettiest part of the day, especially since I had to spend the rest of it staring at morose lawyers.

The Art Museum

Ahhh I love these places.  (and I know you do too!)

I tend to always gravitate to the western areas, and by that, I don’t mean the Cowboy & Indian paintings…  I’m on a hunt to see how many original Impressionist works I can see in my life.

My percentage is slowly increasing every year… not sure I will ever break 90% because there are a few in private collections, so I will need to befriend those collectors ASAP.  If any of you pal around with collectors, hook me up!
