These are more images that I made with my niece at Fort Warren on Georges Island in Boston Harbor. I used my iPhone and a small Lumix to make them. The grainy quality is due to the small sensor size and low light conditions.
My niece and I took the ferry out to George’s Island to explore Fort Warren. Our tour guide was a young and seemingly adventurous man who led us to places I’d not been on previous tours. Before leaving us, he pointed to a set of stairs tucked into a corner of the fort. He said that if we went up the stairs and climbed through the window, we’d find the escarpment galley. We did as he suggested. Getting in the window was no easy feat. We were rewarded with this view. The escarpment gallery is inside the outer wall of the fort and allows defenders to shoot those attacking from the outside. The shafts of light were made by holes used to fire from.
I will not be posting the rest of the weekend. I have a special project I hope to be able to share with you soon.
Along the Minuteman Commuter Bike Trail in Lexington, MA, there is a summer art installation titled Get Out Doors – Lerxington. Inspired by a similar exhibition along NYC’s High Line, these twelve recycled doors were painted by local artists and placed in the town center.
This black bear crossed through our yard on its way to our neighbor’s home. She put’s out bird feeders during the day. Bringing the feeders in at night is usually a safe bet, but not today. This black bear hung around for a while and attracted a few viewers.
Sources of power – one sustainable and one not. This image was two years in the making. I started to notice the juxtaposition of the wind turbine and smoke stacks as I would make the drive south into Boston. I found a parking garage that would give me the right vantage point and finally picked a night to go down to make this image.
I made this image of the USS Constitution from a vantage point along the Harborwalk in Charleston. With the security and equipment on the side where you enter to visit the ship, it’s difficult to get a good photo. I have better luck on this side.
I’d prefer if they didn’t have that one light near the bow of the ship. There were two. I positioned myself so a piling was between me and it.
There seemed to be a lot of activity on the Constitution. I believe they had a scouting troop or similar group of young people camping out overnight on her. Can you imagine?
I was taking some photos from a parking garage when this subway train passed below. Garages are my new thing. It’s not so much photographing them per se. Actually, not at all. It’s they give me a new vantage point.
