Cloud Decending

What we have here is a cloud decending onto the the street. This white in the upper hand corner is a cloud! A crystal clear blue sky & suddenly the clouds come in & drop down. Totally neat to be walking through a cloud on a warm city street. The cloud is cool & smells very fresh. The weather was changing & eventually became quite overcast.

Rose Kennedy Greenway

A warm summer evening is enjoyed by children playing in this fountain. The Rose Kennedy Greenway is the name of the park which was once the site of the elevated highway, I-95, passing through Boston. The highway is now in a tunnel under the ground.

Mayor Curley

Some wit has placed a chair behind the standing bronze statute of Boston's infamous Mayor Curley who was an early 20th century "boss" dominating Boston city politics. See post for September 17, 2008 for a history of this character.

Stephanie's on the corner of Newbury & Exeter Streets is a popular outdoor eatery. After a inordinately cold spring & summer, Bostonians have been enjoying warm summer temperatures so as to enjoy street cafes. The early evening light is just beautiful.

Ice Cream Favorite

Emack & Bolio's located on Newbury Street has been a favorite haunt for ice cream for decades. I like the 70's charm on this filled with hip & trendy fashion boutiques.

Boston Women's Monument

Located on Commonwealth Avenue under a charming canopy of trees, this monument stands as a memorial to many prominent women such as Abigail Adams, Phyllis Wheatley, and so on. I suppose this is to counterbalance the reality that all the other statutes in Boston are each a monument to one man who is either a warrior or a politician, or both.
