Two years ago, I took a couple of photo tours in Boston with Saba of PhotoWalks Tours. These are some doors that I captured on those tours.

This is the Tobin Bridge as seen at a sunset a few weeks back. As a photographer, I have fun studying maps and figuring out interesting places to make images from. I thought this bridge would look nice at sunrise or sunset if I located the right spot. I found a small street corner at the water’s edge in East Boston from which to make this.
I am discovering that I have images with doors in my collection more often than I realize. This image from Boston’s Chinatown on a busy Saturday is my contribution to the Thursday Doors community for this week.
The Cathedral of the Holy Cross is situated in the SOWA neighborhood. It is the cathedral for the city and surrounding area. It was started in the late 1860’s, right after our country’s Civil War ended and dedicated in 1875.
I hear about SOWA, the Boston neighborhood South Of WAshington St. quite a lot. (“SOWA” – get it?) I stopped by a few weeks ago to stroll around and make a few images. It was a bit cold and dreary. They are known for a big open market in the warmer weather. I plan to return. In the meantime, here are a few images.
There is Frog Pond on Boston Common. Perhaps once it was a real pond. Now it is a shallow wading area in summer, a skating rink in winter and a fountain in the shulder seasons. Of course, they have a frog theme. This is one of the frogs.
There was some interesting light a couple of weeks ago when we went into Boston. I’ve photographed this church before but liked the muted sun behind it. It gave it a nice effect. This was made from Copley Square.
