Another show another walkabout. This time after the G.I. Joe Con at the Rhode Island Convention Center we walked over to the City Hall. I have to say if anybody needs footage of period buildings for a Hollywood movie they should come here. The architecture runs the gamut from of the 20th Century.
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.
In the year 1810 the U.S. Congress allocated $4000 to build a lighthouse at Scituate Harbor which was completed in 1811. In 1827, due to complaints from mariners, fifteen feet of height was added to the tower. The light was deactivated in 1860 with the construction of the new Minot’s Light to the north. In 1916 the town of Scituate purchased the lighthouse for $1000 from the federal government. Then in 1968 custody was given to the town historical society. In 1994 the light was relit for the first time in 134 years.
Took a walk by the football stadium, up some Great Hill trails, and down some campus streets.
C-765 again. Most came out pretty crisp. Anything I had to zoom in for blurred from the choppy water on the small fishing boat. The sky had a lot of texture but, not enough blue sky where I really wanted it.
First camera walkabout with the C-765. Also had to get used to using new tools in Photoshop for photo editing since I hadn’t done too much of that before.
