Black & White
Old World Boston
From the right angle and in the right light, Boston looks very much like a small European town.
Boston: A European City
Another photo where Boston looks like a city in Europe. Printed on canvas, this looks like a painting.

Back Bay Brilliance
Post-snowstorm sunset, with amazing colors reflected in the Charles River.
Back Bay Popup
Taken with a long telephoto lens, this image makes the John Hancock Tower, 500 Boylston and the other buildings of Back Bay look like they are from a popup book.
Classic Boston View

Path to the Sunset
This footbridge, which connects Charles St. to the Charles River Esplanade, has yielded some of my favorite Boston photos. Sadly, by the end of 2016 it will be gone, replaced by a new structure.
Back Bay Glow
This was an unexpected image, given that it had snowed in Boston all day. But about an hour before sunset, a weather front pushed all the clouds out to sea, creating this gorgeous sky.
This is the lobby of the Converse headquarters at Lovejoy Wharf in Boston. The door was locked, so I took the photo through the glass and caught a passing seagull against the cloudy sky.
After Snow Glow
It snowed all day, but the sky cleared just before sunset, producing these amazing reflected colors in the Charles.
Taken from the top of the Museum of Science parking garage, this image features the Charlesgate Yacht Club on the right and some of Back Bay's iconic buildings on the left. 2016 was an unusually warm winter - most years, the river wouldn't have this little ice.
Past and Present
The past is never far away in Boston.
