Christian Science Church

Boston is home to The First Church of Christ, Scientist. It is situated in a beautiful plaza in Boston’s Back Bay. Currently, it is undergoing some restoration, but I was able to pull off this image.

To my friends who wondered about last Sunday’s B/W image, it is the same dome as pictured below.

Cathedral of the Holy Cross

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.

Old Stone Church

The Old Stone Church sits on the bank of the Wachusett Reservoir. To provide the city of Boston with water, dams were built and entire communities disappeared as reservoirs formed. The Old Stone Church was a part of one community. It stands but the community moved on. Today the church is part of a park and is on National Register of Historic Places.

Christian Science Center – Boston Massachusetts

The last couple of days, I’ve focused on some smaller subject matter, so let’s go large today. Growing up, I did not spend much time in Back Bay. That’s the reason that most of the images of Boston on this site are from areas closer to the waterfront rather than Back Bay. It was not until high school that I even saw photos of this remarkable building. I worked in Boston during my college days but was a fair distance away from here. It was not until a few years ago when I started to explore more for my blog that I saw this building and the lovely plaza adjoining it. It is a lovely building but not always easy to shoot when I show up there, either due to construction or lighting issues. I happened to catch it just right this past Monday while walking in Boston.

Note: I’ll be spending time with family the next couple of days but will catch up with all of you sometime on Sunday. Cheers!

Trinity Church – Cornish, NH

We spotted this church as we were driving the other day. It was picturesque enough that we stopped to make a few images.
