My Eyes for Boston

This is a collection of photos that I took of the Boston skyline and of the areas surrounding the city over the course of fall 2010.

The first part of this series pertains to the skyline, industrial areas and transit of Boston and its surrounding areas. The second part of the series will deal with the relations between UMass Boston and the sea.

Three photos showcasing Morrissey Boulevard and some of the shuttle buses that run between the UMass Boston campus and the JFK-UMass station. The second photo of the "series" also has some skyline as a backdrop.

In the next batch of photos, my eyes will suck much less.

Thank you for the comments, everyone. Boston's beauty shines through, unhindered by my crappy camera skills.

Here are some more photos from my collection, taken in mid to late autumn of 2010.

I enjoy a cloudy day within the city.

Okay, I lied about the post above being the end of part I. Here are more photos, taken just today. As with the ones above, I took these during my daily commute into Boston (by the way, the links to my own photos are just for the purpose of covering my ass).

Waltam, an inner suburb of Boston. Known as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in North America.

You're most welcome. On that day, the weather was quite a spectacle, what with the heavy winds constantly trying to blow my umbrella away and the rains pelting every inch of my body.

Interesting pics. From where exactly did you take the set of aerials in the first post?

In this picture you can see the historic Boston Greek Orthodox cathedral in classical/byzantine style with its five blue domes.

image hosted on flickr


I wonder if you have a pic of the cathedral from street level as well as the other historic buildings around there; universities, museums etc?

Very true....Boston doesn't have much of skyline in comparison to some other U.S. and foreign cities.

It does not look bad at all from the Cambridge side or from Boston Harbor. But there are not a lot of high rises.
