I keep this glass ball in my car or bag but so often forget to bring it out to make pictures. Finally, I remembered on a recent trip to the coast. I arrived just as the sun came up over the horizon.
After a photoshoot at the coast between Christmas and New Year’s, I stopped and bought a coffee and breakfast burrito at a cafe. I decided to drive down to the beach to eat it.

This is one of my favorite buildings in Boston. It was the U.S. Custom House and is now a Marriott property. One of my goals is to go up to their roof deck.
