It was a delightful coincidence that my work trip to Boston could be arranged to allow me to participate in a group photo walk through the lovely Beacon Hill neighborhood. If I am being honest, places like Beacon Hill aren’t my favorite locations; it is much tidier and well-kept than the places I like to shoot. Plus the class required the use of a 50mm lens, and it is not a lens I automatically use.
Challenges are good, though. They make your brain work in different ways, make your eyes seek different subjects. Those are always excellent exercises for photographers and I am very happy that I was able to take the class.
And that’s the long way of explaining that this street seems to be the most famous street in all of Boston, and so I sort of had to photograph it.
This is the same location I’d photographed in 2015, but nothing looked the same. I think this indicates even more fatalities at this particular intersection, but it might also mean that grieving families are still visiting and adding to their loved one’s memorial.
