Place is not a criteria Scottes. We can go with any good suggestions for locations i think. You would probably know more good shooting locations than i would(im a big fan of your boston skyline shots btw). Can we come up with specific locations for shooting and then maybe shortlist them. How about the area near haymarket(or haymarket itself),we can also get some waterfront shots behind the aquariam? Or maybe Boston commons with the Chinatown/downtown crossing area? Lets get the ball rolling..
And while we are at the topic of Boston - Go Pats!!
Haymarket itself isn't much, I think, but right around the corner is Fanueil Hall and the marketplace, Oyster House is a classic shot. Over to the Aquarium can be good, or a stroll in that area. That covers about a 2-block radius, so it's easy.
The Common's OK, and the Public Garden is even better - especially if you get a fresh snow. Copley Square certainly has some interest. Perhaps we could arrange something with the Trinity Church to get inside and do some shooting. Late afternoon will get some great shots of Trinity Church itself. The reflection off the Hancock Tower can be interesting. The Mother Church is another couple blocks from there, though I'm sure the fountain is off and the pool might even be drained for the winter (completely unsure about that). A couple more blocks gets you to The Fens, an area I have no knowledge of but has possibilities.
There's certainly some shooting to be done along Memorial Drive, and/or the opposite side along the Esplanade. Memorial would require driving, but the Esplanade is only available by foot - a trip on the Red Line and then off to the Esplanade. Long walk in the cold, though - driving Memorial is much easier. Much of the views there are long shots of Boston, but always interesting if a boat or two is out. Some of the boat houses upriver are cool, though, and the bridges alone can make it worthwhile.
In and about the Navy Yard can be cool. The Constitution and the Cassin are there, and you can walk around damn near anywhere and tour both boats. A short walk down a long pier can yield some excellent views of Boston and especially the Zakim Bridge. Bunker Hill Monument is a few blocks from there - who wants to walk up 500 steps to get one hell of a view?
Driving over to East Boston and/or the airport can yield some excellent skyline shots - where I've taken all my Boston panos. Prospect Hill in Somerville is supposed to have some great views of the city, too.
You can walk along just about 90% of the harbor on Boston's Harborwalk. http://www.bostonharborwalk.com/
Most of the stuff in Boston proper - and Harvard Square - are all easily reached by the T and a max of a 2-block walk. Memorial Drive, the Navy Yard, Prospect Hill, and East Boston are drives. Mixing it all up isn't bad - start early, park near Fanueil Hall, grab the T for a while, then back to the car for late afternoon cruises of the rest. With an early sunset in the winter there are *tons* of possibilities for night shots in any of the places mentioned.
I'd recommend a Sunday, which is much much quieter, people-wise.
