On The Waterfront (Boston, MA)

As you may have noticed, I tend to visit the parks, small towns and quaint villages in the New England area.  I much prefer the quaint areas and nature to the hustle and bustle of the city.  But, living so close to Boston, I felt it was time to get my camera and show off my charming city.

As I began my journey in the city, I got off the bus at one of the more fanciful designed train stations, South Station.

I avoided some of the more populated areas and stuck to the area where my work office is, near the financial district and the the wharf and waterfront area.

The buildings in this area are impressive.

The Boston Children’s Museum is located on the boardwalk.

Due to time constraints and the blocked off areas due to the construction in the area as well as the lack of good photography weather (overcast and threatening rain), I didn’t take too many photos.  I plan on coming back another day after most of the construction is complete and the weather is better.  But, I did manage to get some photos of some of the interesting things I saw along the way.

There is a lot of construction going on in the area.  Cranes and half built structures dot the landscape.

Just an fyi, I am going to begin posting extra photos that I am not including on my WordPress blog on my Facebook page.  Of course, I will post my favorite photos on these blog posts.  Sometimes, people have told me they have a hard time viewing the photos on my posts, because I include so many photos.  So, I am going to post photos that don’t make it on my blog to my Facebook page and I will be breaking some blog posts into 2 rather than one big post.  I will also be posting some of my photos in the smaller format (as you may have noticed).  Hopefully, you can click on them if you want to see the full sized photo.  I am going to update my Facebook page regularly with videos, photos and other fun stuff not included in my blogs.  So,  please stop by and see what’s new there!  I hope you like my Facebook page and follow me here: New England Nomad

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
