Default Photologue: Boston Splendour, May 2013

Boston Splendour May 2013 - A Photologue

I have been to Boston numerous times and almost all the times I have been in peak winters so the only colour I got to see was white - all snowed out.

This also meant very little time outdoors with temperatures between -15 to -20 and the chill factor making it brutal. You will wonder why I started a Bloom/Summer photologue with talk of winter and the snow. Well just to give a sense of contrast. First a few pictures of what I got to see in previous visits.

Ok, so what was different this time. Well two things stood out. One was in the days immediately after the Boston marathon events the mood - upbeat and strong. One picture I took just outside a cafe reminds you of that. And the other was the sun, the flowers and the cheer.

Let pictures do the talking

Wonderful capture of Boston City and Suburbs. It's my most favorite city in USA

Which camera and lens were used? Colors have come out quite vivid and crisp

Hi Mobike008

Boston has a unique character. Its neither laid back nor loud and noisy. Just the right blend of pace, business and leisure.

Thank you for your kind words on the pictures. The camera is a 4 year old point and shoot! Its Canon SX10IS. No lens of course. I think the sunlight made the difference.

I do have a tripod from the days of 35mm reel cameras. Had a Minolta till the digital age came and even prior an Agfa 200.

These days I think there are various point and shoot cameras with a variety of settings one can buy and the camera can take amazing pictures.

Cheers
Rajain

Boston is a beautiful city and your pictures are splendid. Are the flowers and garden from Boston Commons?

BTW are you still in Boston?

Thank you. You are too kind.

The flowers are actually on the pathways and small gardens between tall buildings. Boston Common also features in several pictures. Plus Quincy, North End, Fenway Park and TD Garden.

I returned a couple of weeks ago. Stayed close to the harbor. The big boat was captured from my hotel window.

Awesome, I remember most of the buildings in downtown getting these tulips planted. I'm guessing you stayed at the Residence Inn across the bridge.

Hi keaft.wagen

Thanks for the kind words.

You are right - that's where I stayed. Very residential kind of place.

Cheers

Very nice photos with crisp color and beautiful contrast. Amazing to note that they were all shot using normal digicam!

But, its just photos! In a Team Bhp Travelogue, I would expect a narrative to go with the photos. If not a full story, at least few lines stating which is what. Else, its just like the Facebook photo album. Not a travelogue.

No offence meant though. And wonderful pictures these are.
