In the heart of Cambridge, near MIT and Kendall Square is an urban oasis that not everyone knows about. You see, it is situated atop of a parking garage. I heard about this through a Boston area website and went down to check it out. It is open to the public and has benches and tables at which to sit. There are a few solar powered recharging stations and a used-book recycling center. They even have a small garden of raised beds. It’s a nice option for local workers who want a bit of space.
A Red Line train crosses the Longfellow Bridge between Boston and Cambridge. Behind and directly above it is the back of Beacon Hill. Beyond that is the Financial District.
Not far from home, they have a wooden boat auction each spring. They also usually features some cars, many of which are antiques. The boats and cars are usually beautiful but are displayed more for sale than for art. I chose to focus on the beauty in the details. If you’re interested in what you could have bought, please see the link below. Many things did not reach their minimum and may still be for sale, if you’re interested. Cheers!
I really enjoyed the artwork on this building. This is the last in my series of images from Northeastern University. I hope to get out with my camera this week to come up with some fresh material for next weekend. Cheers!
We have our share of chipmunks here on Milford Street. As I went to my car the other morning, this one was perched on top of the woodpile. It stayed there while I backtracked to the house and grabbed my camera and telephoto lens. I managed to make these two images before it raced off.
This mural overlooks a common area at Northeastern University. For more information on this and the artist, go to https://www.northeastern.edu/art/el-mac/
