Boston Waterfront

The Hancock Tower stands tall amidst Back Bay as seen from across the Charles River Basin in Boston. A grey and blue sky dictates the scene, letting the color of the Hancock and the rich brick color of the apartment building stand out.

Here’s a shot back from this summer’s adventures in Boston, with 5 bracketed exposures that were taken during the Worldwide Photowalk held in Boston’s Seaport District, which was led by none other than the talented Brian Matiash.  This building was pretty interesting, with a gorgeous and unique overhang and a relatively quiet afternoon with few people strolling about.  I always enjoy hanging around new places that intrigue me, and I loved the colors of the building (the Institute of Contemporary Art building on the waterfront)…which is appropriately coolly designed for its contents.

Photography is always a fun challenge because it forces you to select what moment you want to capture, and/or what you want to include in your frame.  Sometimes movement and composition come together in a shot, but this time it was more the static lines of the stair case and the exterior lines of the building that made for a nice dynamic set against a summer blue sky.
