Last week, I escaped the already insufferable Texas heat and spent a few days in Boston to celebrate my sister’s graduation from Harvard and Memorial Day weekend. The first and only time I visited that splendid city was 7 years ago, so I was highly anticipating my return as an older, wiser and more seasoned traveler.
We spent our days sightseeing and walking around the impressive town and Cambridge campus. I haven’t dabbled in black & white photography in a while, but the architecture and monuments in Boston are so classic and steeped in history that I decided to strip a few of my photos of pigment for this week’s batch of Friday photos. Ironically, I think the black & white enhances the depth and detail of these photos and adds even more life to the images.
Over the next few days, I plan on uploading more photos documenting my vacation which doubled as a much-needed break from work and some much-needed bonding time with my family. It feels good to be home, but following my sophomore trip to New England, I’ve concluded that Boston has earned a well-deserved spot on my list of favorite U.S. cities.
