A Sunny Spring Day, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

No this is not Europe - but it could be. It is the Old South Church near Copley Plaza in Boston built in 1875.

A dream come true for this police officer - a love of horses and a love of police work combined into one occupation.

This unknown woman walking by reminded me of both Mozart and Carole King.

These outdoor cafe umbrellas on the Boston Common will likely stay tied down today - it's in the low 50's F and patrons would probably rather feel the sun's warmth after a harsh winter.

The Boston Police Gaelic Column of Pipes and Drums warm-up in preparation for participation in a parade.

In the Public Garden, not many signs of spring growth or color yet - no flowers, no water in the fountains.

The Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States.  Open fields, walking paths, ball fields, tennis courts, ice skating, buskers, dogs, food carts, and layabouts enjoy this downtown jewel.

Boston Common isn't just about established traditions either - here a group of modern youth play the sport of Quidditch, a sport normally played on flying brooms at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
