pathways

In the Fenway neighborhood of Boston, there's a large park full of community garden plots that I never knew existed until my friend Beth pointed it out as we walked past it on our way to somewhere else... I was running an errand in the neighborhood yesterday and decided to explore the dozens of pathways through hundreds of gardens with my camera and new telephoto lens.

I love the feeling of "getting away" from the city for a moment while still being almost downtown. Halfway through the afternoon I met Ryan, a local photographer and birder (and MBTA subway crime analyst! cool.) who showed me the best spots in the garden and tips on photographing different birds and butterflies. By sunset I made it to the Charles River to catch the sailboats docking for the night, then grabbed some seafood for dinner before putting in a few hours in the studio.
