Hanover Street in Boston’s North End during one of the Italian festivals. This was to celebrate the Feast Day of a St. Agrippina.
Walking on Charles St one Sunday morning, I spotted this lantern on a chair. There was a sign that there chair was for sale and I had the sense the lantern had been there all night.
Sorry, no fish or other sea creatures. “Aquarium” is the name of a metro stop near the New England Aquarium. I like the geometry and the people i this image. Cheers!
A statue of legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach at Quincy Market. He is seated on a bronzed court side bench next to a bronzed pair of Larry Bird’s shoes. Those shoes are big and almost everyone who passes puts his or her foot on them to compare sizes. It’s fun to watch.
This is one of Boston’s oldest streets.
A Red Line train on its way to Alewife Station in Cambridge. It is passing over the Longfellow Bridge.
This is one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods. It has resisted modernization despite being close to downtown. It has a bit of yesteryear charm. It took three visitis on three separate days to make this image. The light was just not quite right the first two days.
Boston has retained the old names of many of the wharves along the waterfront. This is India Wharf, so named because trade with the Indies was a big part of commerce in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is also Long Wharf which reputedly extended a mile out into the harbor in the old days. Now, Long Wharf is a marina for tour boats and pleasure craft of all sorts and India Wharf is hemmed in on the right by the New England Aquarium. The morning that I made these images, I reached the wharf as the sun was just hitting it. I really like how the dolphin statue shines in the sunlight.
