Hopping over the pond (quite literally), I'm moving on to London and the Tower Bridge. This image was taken during my first trip to London. It was a cold/rainy night, I was exhausted from walking around the city all day, and jet lag was kicking my ass... but it was totally worth it. As the light starting dissipating, everything came to life. This is one image that I captured while walking along the River Thames.
Looking at this photo always makes me laugh... and appreciate the fact that I have "off street" parking. This is an example of the ridiculous parking rules/regulations in Cambridge, MA... imagine being a tourist and trying to make sense of this. I guess the city does pretty well for itself collecting on parking tickets.
I've decided to stick with Boston for an entire week. This photo was taken on Sunday, July 18th in Copley Square. It was a beautiful day outside... so I rode my bike all over the city and took random photos. I really like this spot in Copley Square because it does a good job blending together old (Trinity Church) and new (John Hancock Tower).
Sticking with the "Boston" theme... I decided to add a photo with a bit of color to it. This was probably the most breathtaking sunset I've seen since I moved to Boston. This photo was taken on July 4, 2010. It was one of those evenings where the sun just turned everything to gold... the fireworks got "upstaged" on this particular 4th of July.
(another B&W photo) New England is filled with creepy graveyards in random places... Boston is no exception to this. Whenever I pass by one, it reminds me of all the people that came before me... and the sacrifices that they made. It's difficult to even imagine how different the world was 100 years ago. This particular photo was taken in Harvard Square.
The first photo in this series is an image of a man canoeing down the Charles river in Cambridge, MA. I chose this to be the first photo because Black and White film is what inspired me to learn more about photography and invest in a decent camera. During school, I spent a decent amount of time in the darkroom developing my own film (prior to the advent of digital photography). Yes, I did tweak this photo a bit in Photoshop, but it's merely meant to act as a representation of what got me started.
