Ship at the Courthouse Dock
With tourists and people visiting Boston, this location at the Boston Harbor has always seemed to be the photographically iconic spot. When searching the web this location across from the Boston Harbor Hotel and just in front of the US Courthouse looks to be photographed more than just about any place in Boston. In latter years I would imagine the Zakim Bridge is giving it a run for its money, however.
I try to make it down every other year or so and get a slightly different angle for my shot of this popular spot. The new elevated seating area at Fan Pier Marina where the Harborwalk turns along Liberty Drive has become a popular spot for this photo as of late. I noticed the perspective from that area cuts off a large part of the scene, so this year I opted to get closer to the Courthouse. I was happy to see this ship parked at the docks and get it into my shot.
