The tall ships return to Boston to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the last war fought under sail. I traveled to the Fish Pier and captured some images of:
- Cisne Branco - 249-foot long full rigged tall ship of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Dewaruci - training vessel operated by the Indonesian Navy
- Gloria - official flagship and training vessel of the Colombian Navy
- Guayas - 257-foot long tall ship of Ecuador which trains and preps cadets

After Boston Comic Con we took a jaunt around the WTC and the Harbor Walk.
Some old Southie buildings on Necco Court seem to be made to be captured in B&W. The more modern city looks cool as well.
You can see Fenway Park, from the Prudential Center Skywalk. Quite a nice view from up there. You can see that Boston is still an old city, not many skyscrapers or much “new” construction. It’s too bad the observation deck of the Hancock Tower never reopened after 9/11, it would be nice to have a different vantage point of an aerial type view.
