This weekend I treated myself to some time away in Boston. It's been waaaayyyyyy too long since I've had a vacation, and although a weekend doesn't = a vacation, it's been fab to be away from home. My reason to be here in Boston was to shoot photos. I love taking photos where I live in Maine, but I thought it would be fun for me to be in a new fresh environment for a change, and it has been. I decided to complete my scavenger hunt with the things I've found here.
This week I was looking for: self-portrait, handmade, orange, candle, and traffic signals/signs.
Self-Portrait: Balancing her camera on the hotel chair to create a makeshift tripod she manages to squeak out a selfie with some of her balcony view, (and some of her balcony) at the hotel.
(p.s. I'm having fun in case you can't tell.)
Handmade: Not only handmade...hand-making as well. This young man was selling bracelets in Harvard Square. He said business was kind of hit or miss.
Orange: Dang. These tourist trolleys are everywhere. I avoided them and took the T instead.
Candle: This was the hardest one for me. I didn't see any candles in my travels. This water park near the Prudential Center reminded me of the fireworks called Roman Candles.
Alternately....the light from the street makes the city seem likes it glowing with candlelight.
Traffic signs: I was walking all day and didn't pay much attention to traffic signs. I thought this fork in the road was kind of pretty.
That's it for this week. Looking forward to next week's list. Now I'm going to go find myself a REAL cup of coffee and some breakfast that doesn't cost $18. Thanks for checking out my Bostonian scavenger photos.
