      I couldn’t find it on YouTube … and that’s where I picked up that nasty little virus, by the way. I hate when that happens.

    I cannot remember the last time I was in town in the evening. Probably my birthday meal. Some lovely photos. I sort of grew up with Petula Clark in the background. She was always on the TV or radio.

      She was indeed. I always wondered what became of her. She was everywhere, then she sort of disappeared. I think she did a lot of TV later on. Her voice was everywhere.

        Petula Clark is still around, but naturally now also a golden oldie (like us). She even got a CBE (commander of the British Empire – I think) from the Queen, one of those honours she dishes out to various well known people. She is very popular in England, an institution almost.

          I wondered. She probably did a lot of TV back home. That’s what a lot of our stars do as they get older and they don’t dance and sing so well. TV.

    Downtown was the very first song I recorded on my new tape recorder (one of those really old ones)

    Full of atmosphere and ambiance, Marilyn, great photos.

      I love music and nights and the city. I don’t get into town much anymore, but maybe when the weather brightens up, Garry and I will go a shooting πŸ™‚

        You remind me of the song that Peter likes to play on the piano – I Don’t Get Around Much Any More. I think we’re all feeling some “cabin fever”.

    Nice night photos.., but hard to cut down the flare of the streetlights without printing too dark… πŸ™‚

      I don’t mind the flare of the lights. It’s part of the charm of shooting at night.

    love your night captures- they are filled with so much dimension Marilyn. Downtown was my all time favorite as a kid- it played endlessly on my turntable!!

      I love shooting downtown. If it weren’t so far away, I would do it much more often. As it is, we go there rarely and these days, even more rarely. I don’t even know when or if I’ll be back there again. maybe when I go for my next cardio check up. I think that’s the only reason i go into town anymore. Pity. I really do love Boston.
