Boston in half a day and a night

Boston is a beautiful city with lot of history and good seafood. While it is a city to be explored on the feet, a 30F day during the winter was’t the best time to be around. I reserved all my energy for two photos, one from the skywalk observatory on the night and other one from the Fan pier park during the noon.

First plan was to head to the Skywalk observatory as it was open till 10 at night and there was no point in exploring the downtown in freezing cold. My prior observatory experiences in New York city as a tourist, didn’t let me take my tripod on to the skywalk. Shooting handheld at high ISO, fighting with the reflecting lights from large glass windows of the observatory was something I had to fight with, even though it was not that bad due to less crowd.

Next day late morning we were at Fan Pier park. Harsh light, no clouds, freezing cold, and chilly winds frequently hitting the pier did cut down my options to explore for better composition, and ended up with a black and white. I would go there again if I get a chance to shoot a beautiful sunset with with city lights. Until then these will photos remain the favorites from Boston.
