So long, farewell...

Between moving to a different country, work, travel, training for fundraiser walks, going back to school, etc... we've got so much on our plates that it's time to take something off, and unfortunately this project is it. It's been really fun doing this, and I'll still be watching the City Daily Photo community. And who knows, maybe things will slow down and BDP will be back up and running someday!

In the meantime, thank you for all the past watching, commenting, lurking, and supporting. If you can't live without a beautiful photo of Boston every day, please head over to Clueless in Boston. If you want to keep up with me, you can visit my personal photo blog (and if you want to donate to help me reach my $2,500 fundraising goal for the 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk that's taking up so much of my time now, head here.)

Technical Difficulties....

I'm having trouble uploading photos to Blogger, so cross your fingers I can get it straightened out tomorrow....

Tower Rehab

This is Holy Trinity (German) Church, which is in the South End on Shawmut Ave. There was a sign out front about the Tower rehab project, which stated that the church was built in 1877, and the steeple was lost in a hurricane in 1938. It didn't look like there was any current construction going on when I took the photo (which was a few months back), so perhaps the sign was left from a previous project.

I'm rushing off to the airport (Wisconsin for an extra long weekend!), so you'll have to click through to the church's page if you'd like to read more of the history.

Have Car, Will Move Tree

This cracked me up when I saw it parked outside a flower shop in Roslindale. Good thing they've got a convertible, it would have been tricky to fit that tree into a sedan!

I heart these guys, too.

These two houses are adorbale, and impecibly maintained. Also, I don't know if they took each other's house color into consideration when they were choosing, but I think that these two colors look awesome side by side.

Also on Fairview Street in Roslindale, which seems to have an abundance of cute houses.

I heart this house.

This house isn't anything spectacular, and I'm pretty sure it could use a new coat of paint (and new windows, and some yard work), but when I was walking down the street and saw it framed by this tree, I fell in love.

Fairview Strett, Roslindale.

Same Subject

Just a different point of view on the Bank of America Pavillion.

Sunday, May 18, 2008


This is the Bank of America Pavillion, which is on the waterfront in South Boston and is a very fun place to see a show in the summer. There are tables set up along the water, so you can grab a drink and check out the downtown skyline in between sets or before the show starts. I'll try to get back there sometime this summer and get a picture of that view, but in the meantime you'll have to enjoy this one.

Aerial View of Boston

I gave Ed a flying lesson for his Christmas present and he finally had a beautiful day to use it. The best, and unexpected, part of this gift was that I got to go up with him! We took off from Hanscom Field in a Piper Warrior and headed towards Cape Cod. This is a picture of the Boston skyline on our way south.

How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?

This dog found a great spot to rest in a doorway on Newbury Street. We spent a few minutes staring at him and he at us...nothing seemed to bother him!

Newbies in Boston

Some Canadian Geese and their goslings seemed to be enjoying themselves in the Charles River despite the incessant rain.

Model Madness

I've walked by plenty of movie sets in Boston but not once have I walked past a photo shoot. This model had a throng of observers as she posed for a photographer in front of the Taj Hotel on Newbury Street.

The Boston Scientology headquarters are around the corner from our apartment. This sign is on the corner of our block and I never noticed the graffiti on it until a friend pointed it out to me this weekend.
