Beacon Hill, Boston, Massachusetts, USA


Acorn street is in the Beacon Hill neighborhood and is reportedly one of  the most photographed streets in Boston.

This view is with brilliant late afternoon light. I think I prefer it when overcast or in twilight and with a wet street and the gaslamps glowing - not that I'm complaining about sunshine on a perfect spring day in Boston. These brick row/townhouses are valued between $2-3 million in 2013 US dollars according to real estate website Zillow.

The beautiful window boxes demonstrate that folks here take these small sidewalk "gardens" very seriously.

Wrought iron railings herald a time gone by when this type of craftsmanship and artistry were more prevalent.

A neighborhood flower shop.  A nice old world feel.


The uneven brick sidewalks are good reason to stroll down the street.  And bright sunlight on a cool spring day is a perfect time for an outing.


A window box with spring reflections in the window.  Some folks say that Boston is the "Charleston of the north," I prefer to think that Charleston is the "Boston of the south."
