Back Bay, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Back Bay is one of Boston's neighborhoods and is known for the rows of Victorian brownstones that line it's long and straight streets.

The dogwoods are in bloom on this visit.

The green mall on Commonwealth Avenue makes a great place to walk or rest on a park bench.

Phillis Wheatly is one of the subjects in the Boston Women's Memorial on the Commonwealth Avenue mall. She published a book of poems in 1773 marking the first book published by an African writer in America.

I think he is a professional dog walker - either that or he has too many dogs.

Newbury Street features many commercial businesses and restaurants on the street level,......

....many of which are sporting spring flowers.

I like any restaurant that uses my name.

This was an experiment with a vertical panorama in order to get the entire height of the church. A lot of distortion but I got the entire building in the frame.

I'm not sure whether the Hatch Shell is part of the Back Bay or Beacon Hill neighborhood but, I've included it here.

A high school big band exhibition was ongoing as I passed through. There is always something interesting to do or see in Boston!

White Horse Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

It has been a bit chilly for most folks to hang out on the beach so far this year but, it is still great for walking.......

....especially at low tide.

Windblown sand streaks across the beach as clouds rush by overhead.

Life is good at White Horse Beach.

And walking down a quiet lane to get there is okay, too.

Out and About in Beacon Hill, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

It is likely impossible to take a unique photo of the cobblestone Acorn Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston so here's the classic perspective you've probably seen before.

I wonder if the residents got together and decided who would get to put up the lone American flag that flies along the street?

Elsewhere, this side garden was an explosion of color heralding spring.

Most people in this mostly residential brick-townhouse-very-developed-area, instead of big gardens, have to settle for......

....window boxes and small planters - and they do so to beautiful effect.

The brick sidewalks are not just about flowers. This local artist set up his easel and is painting a version of Boston hundreds of years ago.  I wonder how much work he gets done with people like me constantly interrupting him to chat or take a picture?

Beacon Hill is one of the many interesting and historic neighborhoods in Boston - a world-class city in the northeastern area of the United States.
