Custom House Wharf Sunrise - Nov. 2014

Pictured today is Saturday's photo-worthy sunrise above Custom House Wharf. Sometimes the coldest days provide the most interesting lighting conditions. This shot was taken while wondering around town with Benjamin Williamson, be sure to check out his amazing photography here and here

End of a Rope

A rope alongside a boat docked at Long Wharf. This photo was taken at night, hence the yellow hue from the artificial lighting.

Bayside Trail - November 2014

A quiet and foggy evening on Bayside Trail last week. If/when the Midtown Project moves forward on this block I'll have to remind myself to use this photo as a "before" view in a "before and after" series.

Under Construction: November 2014

Time for a new entry in the "Under Construction" category. None of the photos from these posts are postcard worthy, but I continue because I find it interesting to see how the urban fabric of the city evolves over time. Once a building is finished it's easy to forget what was there before it, as well the effort that went into creating it.  Maybe in a hundred years someone will Google (or whatever comes after Google) the building they live in and find one of these photos. Anyhow...
