Hazy Boston

Smoke from the Canadian forest fires seeped down here, causing the air to be hazy and at points, eerily surreal. A perfect time for pictures! All of these were taken May 31, 2010. Walked a couple hours, grabbed an ice cold Guinness with an old friend, and walked a couple more.

Here are some of the better pictures, in no particular order:












































































































































































Thanks for sticking around! :tup:

Addendum: The Boston Celtics players approve of skyscrapers. Go Celtics! Beat LA!

Wow - so many great shots there, and yes the smoky haze really adds to the pictures. Almost looks like it's just going to be a hot, hazy and humid day. Very nice.

Those were taken on Memorial Day, a national holiday. Everyone was at the beach!

Yeah, the air quality that day was awful. No blood-red sunset pics??

With or without smoke, Boston seems the perfect American city to me. A nice mix of old brick architecture and shiny glass skyscrapers. So "Cheers"!

Thanks for the compliments! I missed out on some great evening shots due to my camera battery dying. Still a productive day nonetheless. Here's a few more.
