Boston photographers are a fortunate bunch really. The areas in which the city yields a great snapshot or a clear view that becomes so photogenic are in great abundance. It is almost like a photographer's dream to be able to walk through the city centre at night and snap some downtown shots because there is so much light and illumination that you may not even require a flash.
Boston photographers can take a tram ride out to Rockport or go to the beautiful and enchanting Castle Island in the Boston Harbour. Boston photographers have never had it so good as they would here. The castle lies on a 23-acre site slap bang in the middle of the harbour and it was used as fortification area since the 17th Century. Around this vicinity are many of the oldest landmarks in American history. After all it is here where modern day America began its new journey of discovery.
Boston photographers are already drooling at the aspect and the prospect of a great photo opportunity in the harbour, especially at night. However, Boston photographers should not forget (as if they would!) the many photographic opportunities presenting themselves at Fort Hill. Here the Boston photographers would have a field day. This is the vicinity which is steeped in tradition and history. Sometimes it almost feels as though the lens is feeling that siege that happened here back in the days of the American Revolution.
Enough of those daydreaming fantasies for the minute and seriously any photographer with an eye for a good picture, wherever they may reside in America, should visit Boston and it should not simply be left to Boston photographers. The Blue Hills Reservation national park is also a plumb site for the keen and intrepid Boston photographer's movement. There are just a little over 7,200 acres of green trees, plants and bushes all of which are surrounded very closely by a metropolis in the middle of the city of Boston. When we say Boston photographers never had it so well, we were not fooling around!
If you go down to the woods today in the Blue Hills you are likely to stumble across the odd coyote or bird of prey like a turkey vulture or three. I am sure Boston photographers would never let an opportunity like that slip under the net and I am certain you should not either.
