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.

And some evening shots of the area around Northeastern to top the day off.

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.

So many great photos from beautiful Boston...thanks :cheers:

it's funny, how the weather in Boston looks exactly the same as the weather in Aarhus :eek:hno::lol:

Thanks for sharing, my friend :) I'll be back :)
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.

Update: I took a crapload of pictures from today's jaunt into Boston. I'll post them 'soon'.

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.



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?
