Boston sites a quick trip.
Posted By: vievetrick, 08-01-2008, 10:46 AM

So I have been on vacation this week and one of the things we did was head to our favorite city Boston. It is about an hour and h alf from the house so once a year we get a room for the night and go see the city. Hopefully, some day the kids will be as interested in seeing the city as we are. Instead they want to see the hotel pool Anyway, figured I would share some of my shots.

Sam Adams buried in on of the oldest cemetaries in Boston.


From a trolly ride the Capital building.


City Hall - looks more like a prison


I honestly forget where this is.


Comments welcomed or enjoy.

Nice shots!

I have to admit the top of the taxi is a little distracting in the last shot, but otherwise I like the leaning effect on the clock tower.

The last pic is near Phanuel Hall. The building on the left was the import duty building or something like that. No clue on about the other newer building. The old building is a hotel.

Thanks for showing me just a little bit of Boston. Great shots, liked the last one, (scrolled up a bit )
Boston must be quite a place, my physio spent some time near there and loved it.

Brings back memories, Pat, from my years in Boston (actually Watertown) in the early '70's. I still love the place and the Red Sox. Back in the early '70's we could decide to go to a ball game at 4 in the afternoon, drive down to Fenway and see a game - no hassle. I understand that you gotta buy tickets way ahead of time nowadays.

Thanks for the shots - particularly #2.
