Fog X FLO -2

Fog X FLO at Arnold Arboretum. Panasonic Lumix G9 with the Leica 12-60mm lens. Exposure triad: f/5, 5 image bracket HDR, ISO 250. 

This was photographed at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University located in the Jamaica Plain and Roslindale sections of Boston. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and is the second largest “link” in the Emerald Necklace.  This was another test of the Lumix G9 and Leica 12-60 lens combination’s weather resistance.  Both camera and lens were soaked as a result of the spray from the high pressure water misters but performed flawlessly.

This art exhibition runs through the end of October and is worth visiting.

Blue Hour before the Fireworks Display

After a very long time the Battle of the Barges returned to Boston.  Piers Park would have been the ideal location but the crowds were overwhelming. Alternate East Boston location provided good views of the North End Barge.

Bridging the Gaps

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

June 12, I got to see the Greenway Project’s latest artwork a little over a month after its installation.  Boston’s aerial rope sculpture created by the artist Janet Echelman is an exquisite sight at night.  The ropes are over 100 miles long and the sculpture has nearly 550,000 knots.  It is anchored to a few buildings and lit using multicolored led lights.  A long exposure bridges the gaps between the ropes as I feel this signifies the coming together for all in this great city.

“My sculpture for Boston above the Rose Kennedy Greenway spans the void where an elevated highway once split downtown from its waterfront. Knitting together the urban fabric, it soars 600 feet through the air above street traffic and Pedestrian Park.

The sculpture’s form echoes the history of its location. The three voids recall the “Tri-Mountain” which was razed in the 18th-Century to create lands from the harbor. The colored banding is a nod to the six traffic lanes that once overwhelmed the neighborhood, before the Big Dig buried them and enable the space to be reclaimed for urban pedestrian life.” An extract from the artist’s statement.

Zakim – Three Views

Zakim Bridge is probably the most photographed bridge in Boston.  Google search and one sees thousands of views of this iconic structure.  The following three are my interpretations captured on August 23, 2014.  These were shot from the park below the bridge.  Please do click on the images to see a larger rendition.

Boston Skyline March 19, 2011 Super Moon Night

Boston Skyline

While cleaning up bring to make more room on my Macbook for the upcoming photo tour and workshop to India next week I came across this image.  This was captured about a year ago on the night of the “super moon”.  I am looking forward to doing a lot of night photography and time lapse images on this trip.  In particular the Taj Mahal – we will be in Agra the night after the full moon but hopefully will get some good opportunities.
