a walk in the park

early december 2012.

i have a very favorite park in boston. it’s not the public gardens or the boston common. it is very small park. it is in post office square and it is quiet, serene, pretty and always uplifting. it reminds me a bit of new york’s central park, though far smaller  — right in the middle of everything, yet a break from it all. i took my holga there (and my canon eos 3) and took a few shots. walk with me if you like! the first is on the way and the rest are within the park itself:

most shots taken with my holga 120n, kodak 400 t max. the last is from my canon eos 3, 50mm f1.4, ektar 100.

      • You’re Welcome. Some friends from New Orleans came to Boston when Katrina hit. They stayed at the hotel right on that park. Many afternoons we spent sitting in that park waiting for New Orleans evacuees to be allowed to go home.

        Thank you for bringing back fond memories!
