Boston Old and New

Old Meets New

On Monday, I showed a black and white version of this building with Genaros restaurant on the ground floor. This view is moving 90 degrees counter-clockwise. It is a busy image with many elements and yet I like how the top left corner shows the skyscrapers of downtown, while the rest of the image (excepting the car) shows much earlier architecture from the late 19th and early 20th century. I used a Lightroom preset to edit the colors and liked the tones from this particular selection.

        I was surprised at the amount of Scandinavian blood in my veins but figure it must be from when the Vikings invaded Ireland. Nothing like a little Viking blood to keep things interesting in the gene pool.

      Thank you…I wanted the buildings in the back blurred and shot at f 2.8 but at a 42 mm focal length. I still like the shot, probably better than it I’d gotten the blurring. Go figure…=P
      I appreciate the comment about the preset colors because I was not sure.

    My Great Grandfather was a Architect in Boston. I’ve often wondered what his work looked like. One day I’ll travel there and explore and see if any of his work is still standing. Thanks for reminding me.

    Wow…that is pretty cool. I spent a lot of time researching family history and visited some church gates my great-great grandfather made in a town in Ireland. He was a blacksmith. Let me know if I can be of any help in your search. Cheers =)
