Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Here's what a perfect Spring day looks like in
the greater Boston area.

A wind vane in Somerville.

Early morning at low tide at Priscilla Beach.

Low tide at White Horse Beach.

Early morning light on the rhododendrons in Manomet.

The rhododendrons in afternoon light.

Golden morning light on Bartlett Pond.

Midday at the Boston Public Garden.

Almost anyone who has ever lived in Boston knows this Citgo sign is not famous for gasoline - it's famous for baseball as a landmark over the left field fence at Fenway Park.


A jarring juxtaposition of old and new - on the left the Trinity Church of Boston, a congregation founded in 1733, the current structure was begun just after the Civil War in 1872 - it stands across the street from the tallest building in New England, the John Hancock Tower completed in 1976 standing 790 feet. 


In the city where old is hip, the first subway in the United States was established in Boston beginning in 1897.
