One Devonshire Place #1109

A second photo, as promised. I've yet to find much photo-worthy at the Minneapolis airport where I seem to be spending most of my time lately, so here's another Boston photo of some downtown buildings near sunset. Notably, the large white building on the left is good 'ol The Devonshire. And of slightly less historical importance: the building in the foreground is the Old State House, which dates back to 1713. It was the center of all political life and debate in colonial Boston. On July 18, 1776, citizens gathered in the street to hear the Declaration of Independence read from the building's balcony, the first public reading in Massachusetts. Today, the building is run by The Bostonian Society as a Boston history museum.

Faneuil Hall

Yesterday's flight issues made posting a bit on the difficult side, but Lewfoto's crack editing team will kick into high gear today to deliver not one, but two Lewfoto-worthy postings. Here's the first: Faneuil Hall, taken from seven stories up (and through a window) in an adjacent building.

Copley Square, part 2

Ok, so I'm told yesterday's picture was a bit confusing. Hopefully this one should clarify it a bit. The right side of yesterday's building was the John Hancock tower, the big shiny building on the right in this photo. That building was showing a reflection of the church, located on the left in this photo. Ok, well perhaps this explanation isn't highly clear, but take a look at yesterday's photo, and hopefully it will all make sense.

Copley Square

A second post today seemed appropriate given yesterday's connectivity issues. Boston seems to usually have beautiful weather when I visit, tempting me to forget about the horrible weather you have most of the time when you actually live here. Nice days here seem to bring everyone outside, like here in Copley Square during lunchtime.

Charles River

Well, I did have this picture taken and ready to post yesterday, but my internet connection in the hotel went down on me. I'm back in Beantown for a few days for work. Here's a view of the Back Bay from across the Charles River.

Biltmore Diplomat

As you well know, I've always identified with the Biltmore Diplomat lifestyle. How apropos, then, for this sign to hang just outside my window, bathing the 1964 orange brick in soft, soothing light.
