Around the Back Bay, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Spring in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston is quite spectacular. Here a couple strolls down Marlborough Street.  Marlborough Street is quieter and/or more residential than the parallel Commonwealth Avenue, Boylston Street, or Newbury Street.

Along Commonwealth Avenue.

Along Marlborough Street.

Trinity Church, founded in 1733, and the Hancock Towr, built in 1976, are at Copley Plaza along Boylston Street. I've taken at least a hundred photos of this view over the years and none of them comes close to capturing the feel and the light.  Oh well, I'll keep trying.

The Church of the Covenant on Newbury Street.


Hanging out near the Trinity Church.  I love to photograph the glow in back-lighted scenes - too bad the result is not as good as the event.

The new crews are still broadcasting live from the Copley Plaza memorial to the Marathon victims.

This young boy, perhaps 60 pounds, gets to meet this 150 pound therapy dog at the site of one of the Marathon bombings. The boy seemed a little tentative.  The breed is a Leonberger and it is BIG - a gentle giant.


A sidewalk painter on Boylston Street is re-creating the bombing scene.

And everywhere the flowers are blooming......

It is a great time to wander in the Back Bay area of Boston.
