COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY – remnants of the “big” January storm at the Boston Common and a few folks already back skating at the frog pond
The “Cyclone Storm” had just hit and we were warned we might be knocked back to the ice age. However, in the end it was just a really nice snow, and as anyone can tell here there was really not even that much snow left on the ground when I went for a photo walk through the Boston Common, the Public Garden and part way down Commonwealth Avenue. It was a very nice day, even the temps were up near 50. From 3 degrees with a wind chill of -25, to almost 70 degrees in less than a week… what can you say?
You could shoot along the Emerald Necklace everyday for a year and still not cover it all. The Necklace comprises half of the City of Boston’s park acreage, parkland in the Town of Brookline, and parkways and park edges under the jurisdiction of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. More than 300,000 people live within its watershed area. From Boston Common to Franklin Park it is approximately seven miles by foot or bicycle through the parks.
