URBAN LIFE – A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Urban

So the subject of the exercise is “urban.” I thought I’d start off with a picture of where we currently live. We didn’t always live in the country. In fact, until 19 years ago we lived in Boston. Before that, I lived in the city of Jerusalem and was raised in New York, in the borough of Queens.

With some years in Hempstead, which is a semi-urban suburb of New York, until we moved out here, we were always city folks. it has taken a bit of getting used to!

Be it ever so humble

So here’s a bit of Boston — Fenway Park, Beacon Hill, the Wharf … and more.

  1. I must visit Boston soon. I’ve never been to New England, and I really want to get there. Love your photos, Marilyn! Especially the very urbanistic place you now live. 🙂

    • It’s truly a different world. I grew up in a big city and lived variously in big and small cities until one day, we moved here. It has taken a lot of adjustment but the beauty really helps in calming the nerves. I don’t know if I could survive the high tension of news, ecological crises, and potential national chaos if I could not look outside and see trees, rivers and a hint of peace.

      • Even though I live in a city, I feel the same way about the mountains here. I’m so glad that I can take a short, 30 minute drive to get out of the congestion and into the beauties of nature. It is a huge comfort.

  3. These are superb picture, Marilyn, and so well composed. My daughter has just looked over my shoulder and asked me what the tall ship is, so I said I’d ask you. Is it anything to do with the Boston Tea Party? 🙂

  4. Oddly enough, my favorite shot is the overview of Boston and Fenway Park (the Citgo sign shows you where it is) from the top of Mission Hill (Baptist Hospital). They actually had an open door and I was able to get outside and shoot the entire city of Boston. I think that’s the only place you can get that shot so it’s pretty special. It was also incredibly COLD up there with the wind blowing off the ocean in January.
