A Storm Approaches…

Whoa, that’s weird…Click through to see the full photo

This here little cloud ripple formed and vanished and reappeared over Boston around 11:00 am 1/18/19 – It looked super cool and my phone camera didn’t kill the vibe.  Happy Friday everyone!

Old South Church, Boston

I hardly ever see pictures of this church except from the finish line angle during Marathon Monday. I suppose when you have to compete with the Hancock Building, Trinity Church, and the Boston Public Library all within spitting distance, you occasionally get ignored. Fun facts, the congregation, not the building, was assembled in 1669 and had such honorable congregants as Ben Franklin, Mary Chilton, and William Dawes (Paul Revere’s lesser-known night-riding presumably hell-raising homie).  The building pictured above was finished in 1875 and, as churches go, looks pretty sweet. You can read all about it here and here.

Custom House Clouds

Once again I am posting a time-lapse of the Custom House in Boston – It is my favorite subject right now and very easy to shoot from the comforts of my own little cubby hole in the sky. It was shot 7 September 2018 from 10:20 – 13:30 so if you were up in their viewing deck you are probably on camera – congratulations, you are now famous. Watch full-screen and in HD for the best results.

Long Exposure Boston

This sweetheart shot was taken on the evening of September 13, 2018. I shot it with my trusty Fujifilm XT2 through some relatively clean windows while sipping a vodka soda. If only every late night shoot was this comfortable.

Downtown Double Crossing

 

Mistakes were made and the culprits were dealt with severely.

One of the pleasures of working with old film cameras is that sometimes a mistake is made that turns out better than the originally intended shot. I think this is one of those times. For those of you keeping track, the photos are of Washington Street and the Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. They were shot on Kodak Portra 400 with a Yashica Lynx 14e and processed/printed by the good people at ColorTek Boston.
