The North End

Powered By SmugWP

One of my favorite places to go in the Boston area is the North End.  This is an Italian enclave where there are so many restaurants packed so close together that you can smell the garlic walking down the street.  Until recently, it was virtually cut off from Boston by the freeways.  Now that the Big Dig is complete, it’s pretty easy to get to from anywhere in downtown.  This ‘building billboard’ was shot just moments after dusk when the sky still had some color.  It’s really the best time to shoot at night – because once it gets completely dark, most things lose their color.

Vital Stats: Canon 5D Mark II w/Canon 24-105 f/4L @ 98mm.  ISO 1600, f/4, 1/60 sec.
