For this Boston Photogenic Place assignment, I picked the Charles River as my location. These pictures were taken this October before the winter arrived in Boston. The river looked so peaceful; it seemed like everyone was trying to catch the sunset.
This day was very chilly. I got a chance to take pictures of these geese by the riverfront.
I sat on the opposite side of the river from these iconic Boston skyscrapers to enjoy the wind and the sunshine. I loved watching the flow of the stream.
Since I lived around Fenway, I always enjoyed driving through Storrow Drive. I finally got a chance to photograph my favorite spot on the road from my car.
This is one of my favorite places for flowers within the Charles River trails. People inside the park will usually gather together and have picnics.
It is a little scary to stand above these high-speed highways on the bridge, but it is definitely worth the walk to take some cool photos.
