Jamaica Pond Sunset

Jamaica Pond Sunset

This was the first day I was able to bike around Boston with only two light layers, along with the benefit of the wind only being about 8 mph. I went down the corridor on my trip inbound, and on the way back by way of Jamaica Pond. I was quite surprised to see the ice...
My First View from Harvard Yard

My First View from Harvard Yard

The firts time I had a chance to see one of the majestic views from Harvard Yard I was at a friend’s apartment in the middle of Summer. Even though I am originally from New York, there was just a wonderful quality and beauty to these towers located all over the...
Humphrey Bird-Man McCarthy

Humphrey Bird-Man McCarthy

If you’ve happened by Battery Park on occasion when bouncing around New York you might have run into “Humphry Bird-Man McCarthy.” I caught him on this day when there weren’t many folks between him and the camera. I switched from the wide-angle to the 70-200 and...
Scarboro Pond at Franklin Park

Scarboro Pond at Franklin Park

There is certainly a night and day difference in the landscape between winter and summer, at Scarboro Pond. I had planned to come shoot this area once all the green grew back and everything bloomed. It’s really quite beautiful over here in the summer. I was tooling...
Custom House and Old State House

Custom House and Old State House

With Exchange Place and The Custom House in the background, this view of the Old State House really puts things in perspective. I’ve seen many old photos of the Old State House when it was easy to see from quite a distance. Today, you have to almost run into it before...
The Melting Spot

The Melting Spot

I was briskly cycling down the Charles moving to another spot for the sunset when I caught a glimpse of this reflection from a building at MIT spilling over the river.  I was caught by the illusion of the reflected sun spot creating the thawed area in the river. I...
Leif’s Winter Watch

Leif’s Winter Watch

This life-size bronze statue memorializes Leif Eriksson, the Norse explorer believed to be the first European to set foot on North America. Originally sited to overlook the Charles River, Eriksson stands atop a boulder and shields his eyes as if surveying unfamiliar...
The Reflecting Hancock

The Reflecting Hancock

You gotta love Copley Square.  There’s so much history in this very small piece of ground.  Trinity Church, and Hancock Tower, in this photo, are but a small bit of it.  The old location of the Museum of Fine Arts was here, as well as the current location of the...
Rolling out the Yellow Carpet

Rolling out the Yellow Carpet

The Boston Common and the Public Garden are so beautiful this time of year, and it’s hard not to walk through over the bed of yellow pedals.  I’m in the Public Garden here, with the Ether Monument in the background.
Autumn in Central Park

Autumn in Central Park

There is so much amazing foliage in New England if you can hit the right place at the right time.  However, Central Park is a place that never disappoints during Fall.  This is one of my favorite bridges in the park, and it’s splendid this time of year!
Longfellow Bridge

Longfellow Bridge

The Longfellow Bridge rehabilitation project has been going on for about 5 years now, at a cost of more than a quarter-billion dollars. The bridge, formally dedicated in 1907 carries close to 30,000 cars a day. It’s fantastic to finally see the completed facade and...
Trinity Church

Trinity Church

Trinity church is one of the many places that’s photographed in Boston by natives and tourists alike, gazillions of times each year. Because of how built up the city is all around Copley Square it’s difficult to approach photography of this amazingly historical...
Winthrop & the Boston Skyline

Winthrop & the Boston Skyline

It may only be a relatively small hill on Deer Island, but the view from up here is pretty expansive.  From this vantage point I was able to get some of the other harbor islands in on the far left. 93 in Boston is visible way off in the distance on the left, and the...

Induro Tripods

I’ve had an Induro Tripod for a while now.  I have the CLT204, I use it for my light to medium duty work.  I have a number of tripods from all different makers in different sizes and weights.  I can honestly say for materials, craftsmanship, appearance and so...
The Plant

The Plant

I’ve always been fascinated by this water plant structure at the back of Deer Island.  I know a water plant isn’t a very sexy topic for a photograph, but the shape and massive size of everything, combined with its location right at the edge of the...
Rain or Shine

Rain or Shine

Way out here in the harbor islands the view of the Boston skyline is always pretty awesome. I have shot Boston from out here more times than I can count over the years. It never gets old because you can certainly count on the sun, the clouds or both to sometimes...
Water Tower Hill from Deer Island

Water Tower Hill from Deer Island

Some interesting information about Winthrop and the surrounding areas. Winthrop was settled in 1630 as Pullen Poynt (Pulling Point), so named because the tides made hard pulling for boatmen. Originally part of an area called Winnisimmet. The area was annexed by Boston...
St Michael Cemetery

St Michael Cemetery

At the beginning of the 20th century, Boston’s population of some 20,000 Italians had found themselves with nowhere to properly bury their dead. Envisioning a place that could serve the Italian community for generations to come, the pastors of four churches set...
Powwow River Waterfall

Powwow River Waterfall

The falls in the center of Amesbury are part of the Powwow River, with a variety of machinery, dams, and houses surrounding the falls. The river flows under a historic building in the center of the town. During flooding, the Powwow River has made national news due to...
