I’ve only managed to spend one night in Boston, but this beautiful view stayed with me… :-)

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    did you stay in Cambridge? stunning shot my friend

  • It was indeed Cambridge. Just there for a meeting and an overnight stay. Not one of the greatest hotel experiences, but when I walked to the river bank, what a view!!! I’m was just annoyed that I didn’t have a proper tripod with me and had to make do with balancing the camera on a branch somewhere… :-) Many thanks for favoring it Luda!

    I love this shot. I am still eager to get to Boston and the Charles River to be able to try my own hand at this gorgeous view. Kudos!——Mitch

  • Thank you Mitch, I hope you manage it! I’d love to go back and have another go at this… There’s so much more I could do now.
