Writing with Light

Stars & Stripes

I flew to Boston last Sunday for a conference and was lucky to have the day to myself to walk around and explore this beautiful city. It’s been years since I’ve been there and given what was going on last week, when they locked down the city I wasn’t sure if my trip would be cancelled or not. It was a moving time to be in the city and I’ll be sharing my images and impressions over the next little while.

As I was walking along Atlantic Ave I came upon this archway which is between the InterContinental and the Boston Harbor Hotel. With the sun shining and the flag blowing in the wind it was a perfect way to start the day.

Do you remember Uggie from my Life in the City post earlier this week? A few people asked if I got a closer shot of his face and I did. You can see it on my Facebook page here. From time to time I will post and share thing on the Edith Levy Photography Facebook Page that you won’t see on the blog. If you haven’t done so already please consider “liking” my FB page.

Have a great weekend everyone.

    • Thanks Nils. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see a game but I did enjoy the city.

  16. That’s a great image, Edith – perfect exposure. That sounds like my sort of conference – Ooe spent touring the city rather than stuck in a sleep-inducing indoor conference hall. LOL!

    • Thanks Andy. Lucky for me I got to touring the city one day but then was stuck in a sleep-inducing conference for the next 2 days. Oh well…at least I got some photography in.

      • You’ve got your priorities right, Edith!

  21. I love your use of light in this image. I haven’t had much of a chance to go out and shoot at dawn or dusk, or even at night, but I’m very keen to get working on it. Great shot!
