Memorial Day weekend, 2016. In Boston for a wedding, we decided to make a holiday of it. Stayed in the Aloft Hotel in South Boston, on the harbor. We made time to shoot some pictures. Remarkably, we did not get lost. We had no trouble getting to the harbor and found a convenient parking garage … at a reasonable price. In Boston. On a holiday weekend. Gee.
Such a miracle deserves celebration.
We both took a lot of pictures. The differences are interesting. Marilyn commented that my “roots” in journalism are obvious. I shoot pictures of people and activities. She takes landscapes and architectural shots, though we always seem to take at least a dozen pretty much identical shots, no matter what else we do.
I was impressed at the intrepid kayakers braving Boston Harbor. There’s a lot of boat traffic and I would not want to be in such a tiny craft in so crowded a waterway.
It’s true. I look for people. I’m an old news guy and that’s what I see. Sometimes, we take the same pictures or almost the same … and sometimes, we see very different things while being in the same place.
