Sundays in May

So another Sunday has come and gone. I went for a photo hike through Boston with my friend Michael. We went to the North end for pastries, and then hit Beacon Hill, where we got down to the business of taking photos. Michael has had some experiences with lenses of a different (read that military) nature. It was interesting to discuss the differences and similarities between the lenses we have both looked through on our paths through life.

So here are the photos from Beacon Hill and the Public Gardens. I ended up lending my flash to a woman and man who were trying to take a photo of the fountain with a camera phone. They were timing it with her exposure and he would just manually fire the flash. I hope they got something usable.

Once I read somewhere, that the street with the cobblestone is the most photographed street in America. I'm not sure if it is true, but I can see why. 

P.S. Michael's eye and input were invaluable in getting these shots. He has a real latent talent for seeing light and the way it plays off the detail in a scene. Also his eye for leading lines in the photos is top-notch. I may have gone my own way with one or two of the shots that I took, but mostly I compromised with the input from Michael. With some practice and refinement, I believe he could easily be a very good professional photographer. As far as I am concerned, the Copyright information on these photos will be changed to: Copyright Stephen Siteman/Michael King 2012 - when I get around to changing it in Lightroom.
