I was in Quincy market this week shooting street photography. It was an OK location to shoot. What other locations would you suggest in the Boston area for good street photography opportunities (markets, crowds, cafes, etc.)?


I always want C&C on my shots.

How about anywhere near Fenway when the Sox are playing? I was there only briefly once (and there wasn't a game going on), but it seems like it would be a great place for street photography.

Yeah, the Fenway/Kenmore Square area would be good, as well as most of the major roads, including Commonwealth Ave, Boylston, and Newbury. Beacon Hill and the North End would also offer interesting backdrops. Mass Ave from the Charles to Harvard Square.

It's been years since I've lived in Boston, but there are plenty of locations to shoot. North End was always one of my favorite areas. Lots of street activity, some of the most historical and oldest neighborhoods in Boston.
