    Back at this forum's sister site, we had a meet up in downtown Boston, and we attended the Boston PhotoWalks Tour of Beacon Hill.

    A good few of us attended and had a blast. I didn't realize that none of us posted our photos here, and figured this might be a good start to also share images of our beautiful city.

    All images were taken with the E-PL1, and either the Oly 14-42 kit, Panny 20mm or Canon FD 50mm f/1.4.

    Enjoy these, feel free to post your Boston photos, and come, visit us! (No, I'm not an employee of Mayor Menino. :biggrin:)

    What better place to start than with our State House.

    Wonderful, Hyubie! We down here of more southern New York contingent never got our acts together.:redface: Hope springs eternal, however...maybe for the autumn days.

    Boston is so full of history for us here in the states and there's so much to see and do. I spent about a year in Cambridge back in the early 1970s and used to forget where I parked my car... Those streets just don't have the Manhattan grid!:wink:

    I'm sorry to say that I haven't been up there in about 10 years, but I've always had a deep soft spot for Bean Town.:love:

    You've started us with a really nice array of images...and I think I spy Alan in a few of them, too. Many thanks! I know we have some others who can add to this thread for sure!

    Yes, that is Alan. In the 9th picture, it's a husband-and-wife camera-brandishing tandem (his wife in green). :biggrin:
