“Red Dot Trail” to Great Blue Hill summit
1

The Blue Hills (on the south edge of the Boston Basin, Massachusetts, USA) are not high. The tallest, Great Blue Hill, which is the terminus of this trail, is only 635 ft or 194 m, but it is within sight of the ocean. Out of proportion to their dimunitive elevation, these granite hills with their glacial scars are rugged and steep, and conserved in one of the largest undeveloped woodland parks so near a US city. This location is near the Canton-Milton border, just a dozen miles or so from downtown Boston. And after this hike, we enjoyed an excellent IPA in the beer garden at Trillium Brewery, just a mile or so away!

Enjoying using my oldish but smallish E2 with the tiny 27 (mk 1) on hikes. Although I do miss the bigger viewfinder and eyecup from the H1.

Re: A not so random walk in Brooklyn

These images make me homesick. Born & raised in Brooklyn. Now live on the left coast. Miss the people. What accent?

looks like you took a walk during the golden hour. Love the color of the light you captured with the brownstones.

Thank you.

I prefer the brownstones you find in Park Slope. Of course, if you walked around Park Slope you couldn’t have captured the other images on the same day.

The word has gotten out about Washington street with the Manhattan bridge framing the Empire State Building. I’ve made that image several times at different times of the day and evening. There is a reason it is a classic location.

Yup, that place was so crowded. Without a doubt, it is everyone's favorite spot for pictures.

Hate when all the tourists get in my frame. Then again, I’m a tourist and there I am.

I like the image of Jane’s carousel. I like you chose to show the carousel in motion with the blur. I would have liked to see a person, preferably a child in the frame.

I couldn't agree more. I would love to have a child or some people in the picture too. Unfortunately, the carousel was closed when I took the picture.

I’d also play with a longer shutter speed to see if more blurr was better. Maybe not.

Since it was closed, the carousel was not in motion. I used the reflection and light, and played with the clarity and levels to create a sense of motion there.

Nice series of images.

Thank you!

I want to go back to Brooklyn around the middle of September for my birthday and the San Genarro festival in little Italy.

Happy early birthday to you. I hope your wish will come true.

There are so many more places to go and variety of different looking people than Seattle offers.

NYC was made for street photographers.

No one will disagree.

Nice shots. I really like the interpretation in the post processing as well.

Sounds like a lovely place to hike Chris yet this time of year it's a bit hot for my taste.  Lovely image

Juvenile American Oystercatcher gets a supplement from it's parent as it is also feeding on it's own. The photo was taken Wednesday on the South Shore of Long Island.

Comments and suggestions welcome,
