It was an important city to my family with my father working in Cambridge and my brother living in Somerville for a few years. I made many visits to friends whom were studying at Harvard, Northeastern, Boston University, and the New England Conservatory of Music.
I was decently a Boston Celtics fan when I lived in Rhode Island during the summer of 2008 when they hoisted the Larry O’Brien. A front-runner? Perhaps. But I also made a trip to see them in the mid 2000’s before their greatness (oh boy, was that painful to watch). I also returned for many games with friends following their championship season (less painful to watch).
I made a three-day trip to Boston in the spring of 2010 to see my friends Carolina and Richard. I brought the D90 along for the trip, planning to photograph them for fun (See: The Lescanos)
This particular day started with me and Richard walking around Harvard Medical’s campus. We left his dorm, and I had the camera in my hand and was just walking and clicking. Richard's back was apparently interesting to start with. Afterward we met with Richard’s friend, Rebecca (shown in the window of one of the images). After parting ways with them, I hopped the T back to where I had parked my car, stopping in the Public Garden along the way. I enjoy photographing statues and Boston has some great ones in the Public Garden: The George Washington equestrian statue and I was enthralled with the Ether Monument:
