Outside Inside at the MFA

Here's another picture from last Sunday's trip to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. This is one of the glass corridors added during the latest renovation of the MFA.  I love to stand inside and look out at Boston, as in this photograph.

Boston Seen Through MFA Window

This is another image from our trip to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts last Sunday.  There is lots to see in the MFA, including the building itself.  One of my favorite post-renovation features: new all glass corridors build on the outside of the old building.  I was standing in one of these indoor/outdoor hallways when I took this picture of the Boston skyline.

Courtyard at the MFA

Last Sunday my daughter and I went to Boston to see a pastel show at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA).  We grabbed a snack in the cafeteria.  I liked the view of the courtyard through the window, so I took this picture.

Blue Lights under Longfellow Bridge

Here is another image from last Saturday night's trip into Boston.  Even though (especially because) it was windy and rainy, I took pictures, from the passenger seat. We were on Storrow Drive when I saw the new blue lights under the Longfellow Bridge.  I loved the lights, so I took a picture. The weather, the darkness, and the movement of the car created some odd effects, but then this is how we see the landscape from our cars. In this case, the image is almost abstract, but the the blue arches suggest the outline of the bridge.  The buildings in the distance are Cambridge (across the Charles River).

View of the Charles River

Here's another photo from our trip into Boston last Saturday night.  This is a view of the Charles River from the Leverett Circle Connector, heading toward Storrow Drive.  The wind and rain combined with the city lights to create some impressionistic effects. Today I edited the original version to create more contrast and cropped it to get this composition.

Heading into Boston (on Leverett Circle Connector Bridge)

Here's another image from Saturday night's photo shoot.  We were heading into Boston on a rainy night. The effects of lights and weather made some of my photos look impressionistic, even abstract.  This is a view of the Charles River and Boston from the Leverett Circle Connector Bridge, taken as we headed towards Storrow Drive.  Tonight I cropped the original photo to get this composition.

Zakim Bridge on a Rainy Night

Another photo from our trip into Boston on Saturday.  The Zakim Bridge is always beautiful, but at night it is lit with blue light and it looks awesome.
