they put lobster on nachos there  

I went to Boston. I found a cake that was six inches tall. They called it "gigantic," but I called it "glorious."


Parks are a vital part of any urban area, and Boston is no exception. The particular park my mother and I stumbled upon has several lovely monuments, and tourists are drawn to these sort of sites, for they provide good pictures. I, however, instinctively found the fungus.


The park was also home to a large number of squirrels and cute little birds. There were so many of the latter, in fact, that wherever they landed looked an awful lot like living, popping popcorn.


As I was taking this photo, I heard someone say, "What are you taking a picture of?" When I looked up to respond, I suddenly realized that I was being addressed by a guy with a microphone on a tour trolley, and I had somehow become the focus of a group of tourists.


I'm still not sure whether I passed for "local photographer" or "fellow tourist."


I've already forgotten what neighborhood this was in, but one thing was for sure: I'd need to win the lottery first.


I call this the Wishbone House. I'm not sure when the missing house met its demise, but its lingering shadow is interesting nonetheless.


This unfortunate sticker was located on the wrong side of a Dunkin Donuts shop. If I always had to look in at the sweets and coffee, I'd be upset too!


A unicorn on the side of a post. Somewhere.


I was amused by this sticker, mostly because I happened to be wearing about five layers when I spotted it.


Nothing much to say about this one.


This is my piece of bread. Back off! It's mine! Don't even think about taking it! I saw you thinking about it, but you should know better! It's mine! My bread! Mine!


I was amused by the contrast between the ornate rose window and the Port-a-potty.

Pretty much says it all! Hope you had a wonderful time there!

BTW, what brought you there in the first place? Tour visit? ~_^

It was. It made for a wonderful breakfast, too!

I love the wishbone house. For the last few minutes I've been trying to figure out how that shape would have come about, but nothing definite comes to mind. It just seems so arbitrary.

Given Boston's fondness for rowhouses, I'm 90% sure it was a former residence or structure on the site. It was possibly demolished when that roadway was modernized, or taken down due to decay at some point. Dunno!

So so pretty! That bird is too cute :3

I wish I had known you were coming!

I kept on trying to tempt it closer with more bread, but I wasn't patient enough ... that's as about as close as it came!

My mother took care of travel/hotel arrangements, so I wasn't aware of details much in advance. I did give you a call on Thursday when we were first there, I think, but I knew I probably wouldn't hear from you because you had a ton of plans that weekend. (p.s. happy belated birthday!)

Next time, perhaps!

Awww~ lol!

YOU DID?!?!!! How did I miss it?? My phone and I are now in a fight and I think we should break up soon. But that's true~ I was probably in transit at that point.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm glad you had fun~ hopefully you'll be back <3

The photos are gorgeous hun. I hope you're keeping all these cataloged and putting some of these into a portfolio. They are gorgeous. I bet you could sell prints of some of these on DA or some other such site.

So jealous of the cake that ate Boston by the way. It's gynormous. :)

Hope you had a good trip to Boston. I've never been, but my brother says it's a great town.

Thanks. I am working on a portfolio site, practically as we type.

That cake not only supplied me with dessert, it was big enough for breakfast for two!

I had a good time, but I should probably bring a thicker jacket next time I go!

I agree, that cake is glorious.

And your photographs are so beautiful! My favs are the extreme close up ones though.

It is so damn glorious, I am almost tempted to make an icon of the cake. Almost.

Thanks for the compliment. I always think it's something of a miracle when the right thing is in focus. Haha.
