July 10, 2010-Day 191

As I previously mentioned, we went up to Boston over the weekend to visit some friends. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't very nice, so we headed over to the Aquarium.

Aquariums are very difficult places to take photograph. They have notoriously bad lighting and everything is behind glass that often has hand prints all over it. The Boston Aquarium was no different, but here are a few that I think came out okay.








After we left the aquarium, I popped on my new ultra-wide angle lens, and we walked around Boston for a couple of hours.

From there, I put the 28-75 back on, and we headed over to Boston Common:

We were really lucky because it only rained while we were in the aquarium. We heard that Boston got over 4 inches in less than 2 hours, though, and the lake in Boston Common actually overflowed.

This swan didn't seem to mind, though.





  1. These came out great - I wonder if I can convince my husband to take me to the aquarium here.

  2. OMG... I am in tears from home sickness.
    Grew up there before moving south.
    I have not seen the Potato Fmine staues before.
    Wow. What an impact.

    Of course... LOVE the Ducklings!
