A Taste of Boston

So I'm in Boston. I went on a little photo safari yesterday afternoon after taking a nap following a red-eye flight. This place is SO FULL of history which I have such a huge appreciation for, coming from California, where history is still young. I took the Freedom Trail tour through Boston and it was a fun 90-minute walk.

Plus, I love the fact that you can walk everywhere, and when you're feet are dying, there's a subway system - the "T". Reminds me of my days in France where driving wasn't a necessity or an option.

Hey, glad you posted some more pics from Boston. Sounds like a gorgeous walk, if not a little tiring :)
As for wppi, I so want to go, especially to actually meet some [b] schoolers face to face!! I'm still trying to scope out what exact days are the best to make it out there for, since going the whole week seems like it might be too much for my wallet and vacation pay!

I like the Spring Lane photo the best! Looks like you're getting lots of shoot time :)
