Default 2 From Boston

In My Opinion two stunning pieces of architecture, up there with the best skyscapers in the world.


Hancock Place




Exchange Place




My best mate lives in Rockport Ma, I've loved my time visting the area and the City of Boston and would go back there in a flash

Wonderful shots. Wouldn't mind seeing them in B&W. Love the perspective. I have some nice ones from a very similar angle from here in Chicago. Great job!

Thanks Sandy, these shots came out great, I think the reason for this was that I was able to isolate the subject in it's own frame.

Great shots Scottie, cool perspective. I like the b&w's the best, especially the first one.

I do like to visit Boston for Urban photography, NYC is great too but Boston seems a little more spacious than Manhattan

You lucked out. I was in Boston in August and when I was getting ready to snap a shot from across the street, a security guard at the base of the building said no. I was trying to catch another building's reflection off the windows.
