BOSTON Reflections

Boston downtown area has many tall glass buildings which act as perfect mirrors with right angle of the sun. It presents some interesting photo opportunities, like the one below.

The day when I took this photo was perfectly sunny with clear blue skies. I just played a bit here with textures to make it a bit more moody.

Friday Mystery Photo

This week I managed to stop by the Tidal Basin and check out cherry blossoms. Weather was nice and they were in full bloom. The number of people around there was in full bloom as well, it seems like entire population of Northern Virginia and same number of visitors decided to get out and enjoy it as well. I hope to share some photos in the coming days.

But today is the Friday and it means we have a photo that is probably not going to be known by most, maybe by some. Where is it and what is that church is known for?

Sunday update: Well, looks like no one who have visited my blog have seen this church in the past. I actually have other photos of it already posted, just from a different side. At that time it was posted as Friday Mystery Photo as well and some folks actually knew the place. I guess you have not been back to see this one.

500

Today marks a small milestone on my blog – it should be post # 500 under the Around the World category. It means that there should be 500+ photos for you to explorer. I’ll have to make a toast when I get back from work to another 500+ posts.

Most Important Day in Their Life

Their marriage ceremony is in progress. It is probably one of the most important days in their lives. In such a pretty place too. The couple you see is actually not the one getting married, these two are holding special hats over the couple who is getting married. If you’d look from the side you’d see what I’m talking about.

It is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to tell where it is, so here is another photo, from outside. The story goes that this church was built without a single iron nail. Not sure how true it is, but I kind of like it.
