America, Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week – Boston

5 Comments 23 July 2010

Doing something a little different this week and instead of one photo, I’m bringing you a photo walk I did while staying in Boston this summer.    I walked around the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill where cobblestone streets and gas lamps take you back in time.  Then I took a wander through the famous Boston Common; a historical gathering spot for all of Boston.  The park was bursting with color and some new life this summer!  Enjoy!

    Gorgeous shots! Especially the tulips. (My favorite flower!)

  2. Great photos! Thank you for bringing us the joy of summer in Boston. The hanging trees remind me of the ones we have here in Christchurch’s Hagley Park and how beautiful it looks on a sunny summer day :-)

    I enjoyed my photo walk through Boston. More great photos, Sherry.

  4. I have to know…how did you get the effect in the purple pod photo – it’s magnificent. And Boston Commons looks pretty spectacular as well.

    I actually recently purchased a cool plugin calle Topaz Adjust – it has a number of various macros – this one create a ghostly effect…I also used it in the sailboat picture in my Southie Trail post about Boston too!
