I love our annual excursion to the Boston Pops Christmas concert. I love the music. I love symphony hall. I love the area, the architecture, the happy crowd … and that we always seem to get a great parking space. I take the parking space as a sign that the gods favor us. Next … a lottery win!
The other big reason I love that excursion is my annual opportunity to shoot at night in Boston. I can shoot night scenes around here any day of the year, but our town isn’t exactly Metropolis. Urban landscape requires an urban setting.
We always do these excursions in a family group … and I am always the only one who brings a camera. This time I just kept the tickets in my bag and told everyone when I was through taking pictures, they would get tickets … and not a moment sooner. That slowed them down!
After the show, I took a few more, but they decided to not leave me behind there on the streets of Boston, even though I couldn’t threaten them with tickets. Nice of them, don’t you think?
