A Weekend of Shooting in Boston
November 5, 2009
This past weekend I did lots of shooting, in and around Boston. Beacon Hill, graveyards, Bruins game, Halloween festivities and a trip down to the south shore. My photos are all kind of all over the place, but it was a great weekend to shoot. I would love your thoughts and feed back on the shots. Let me know what you think…the good and not so good.
Eve of Halloween, walking around Beacon Hill
Beautiful and festive window boxes
I am learning fabulous window boxes are a Beacon Hill must!
The streets of Beacon Hill are closed to cars from 5-9pm on Halloween and the place is just teaming with families trick or treating. As our friend described the scene…it is Mardi Gras for children. So true.
The Boston Public Garden
Eve of Halloween, Ghost Tour
Walking through 200 year old graveyards at night (especially on the eve of Halloween) made for a pretty neat and spooky experience. Eventhough the night shots were quite challenging, it just makes me want to work on my night shots even more.
Cemetery in the North End
Did you know that the Boston strangler’s last victim lived and was killed in the apartment right above The Paramount on Charles Street? And I thought they were just known for their delicious omelettes. We heard that and many other stories of Boston on the Ghost and Gravestones tour. It was great fun.
We went to the afternoon Bruins hockey game (probably only the 2nd or 3rd hockey game I have been to in my life), and had a great time looking at all the crazy Bruins fans dresses up for Halloween…and perhaps some dressed as the would for any Bruins game.
Pucks & Prada’s
With the outside temperature reaching the mid 70’s my Prada wedges had a nice time at the game too. I got them at my favorite consignment shops in Atlanta, Labels Resale Boutique. I have gotten some ridiculous finds there.
On Beacon Hill
The streets were packed and the decorations, out of this world. A group of us walked around with dogs, babies and wine to take in the scene.
Perfect time to practice night shots.
All Saints’ Day – Cohasset
The next day my hubby and I took a drive down to Cohasset to see the south shore and visit with some of his family. The drive was lovely and Cohasset is this ridiculously picturesque Massachusetts coastal town.
Darling bistro and place for lunch, The Red Lion Inn and Restaurant.
Seriously, this town is out of a movie, “Cue vintage, orange, VW bus.”
Harbor and beach
Whew. Enough for now. Off to Maine this weekend to visit my sister and shoot, shoot, shoot. It is so beautiful up there.
