Mike, love your photographs especially #4, to my eye it has wonderful detail, color, and texture.
Also had a flashback to the late '50s when as a young boy I was visiting an aunt who lived in the Cotswolds district, somewhere around Cheltenham, who had a farm, with lots of sheep.
. . . . . I can see them starting at 'Dorchester Heights' going down 'G' street from the high school to the water in Dorchester Bay . . . . .
Also love the women with the fur coat walking in front of them, perhaps this is her group of personal body guards who protect her in public places from having paint thrown on her coat. A world of possibilities with that photo!
Love the look of joy and awe of the kids in your second shot of the group (Hearts)! Wonderful! The light & composition really makes this B&W photo shine.
I don't know if that is Santa, but it could be a member of the city council, concierge, chauffeur, or lawyer. Love those street shots! . . . . . leaves a lot to the imagination . . . . .
. . . . . do love the Boston version of 'Chinese' & 'Italian' food, after living in different parts of the country you learn there is a difference in food preparations and taste! That can make me homesick . . . . . or warm sunny days on the Cape . . . . . or sailing during race week in Marblehead . . . . . or off the coast of Maine . . . . . or watching Yaz, Jim Lomberg, Bill Lee, Frank Malzone, the Gold Dust twins, Dick Raditz, Carlton Fisk, Rico P, Tony C, or other players from the 60's/70's in Fenway, you could make me homesick . . . .
Thanks everyone. I'm really humbled. And have a total massive desire for an M9 and Leica glass now. This M8 and a 40 Nokton is an evil tease know that I'm feeling more comfortable with this system.
Jason, the starburst sunset is spectacular!
Ok, this could be Bridge over troubled Waters.... The water is not to clean.
Well, you can tell this is a City project, just look at the planning, there's one more bright vest not pictured... lol.
Well, let's grill something...
Jason, love both of your photos posted above, absolutely beautiful captures. I agree the M8 with the CV 40/1.4 Nokton is a wonderful combo!
. . . . . also have the same desire to move up to the M9 and additional Leica glass.
I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. I Must have patience. .....
. . . . . . Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . . . . and enough money . . . . . . Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . . . .
Jason, really nice scenes captured on those two pics! Beautiful
. . . . . after coffee a quick stop to take a few shots of the man whom the city was named after.
. . . . . and a shot of the five point cafe where you can catch a bite to eat . . . . .
M8.2 with Voigtlander Nokton Classic SC 40mm f1.4
Dan, the 5 point cafe is interesting.

First we have the 'Copper Cellar' & 'Cumberland Grill', then on to the 'Mellow Mushroom', then after the mushroom there questions about Pink streaks in the sky, Oh my
Nice photos, the sky shots were a very nice capture!
. . . . . one more question, where did that ladder go to in the 'Copper Cellar'? The secret tap room?
. . . . . love the neighborhood store, flashback to the 60's walking in to get a pack of Lucky Stripes . . . . . Dorothy is looking pretty darn good on those skates, and the artist looks like he has some pretty good stuff on the bench, the state house and Boston Light look pretty darn good, Massachusetts Art Institute graduate material, and the guy selling the spare change looks like he is doing well and hopes he keeps up the good work!
Thanks for sharing!
. . . . . the journey continues, thanks for sharing!
Great shots Dan...making me miss my time in Seattle.
