Downtown Boston from my Hotel Room

Usually, I like to sneak up to the roof of buildings to get the best shots. But, every now and then, my best plans are foiled by locked doors and surly security guards. My charms fail at some point, and I am stuck shooting out of my hotel room window. The only advantage is that I don't have to freeze in 10 degree howling wind while waiting for the light to hit its apogee of beauty.


This was just about the prettiest part of the day, especially since I had to spend the rest of it staring at morose lawyers.
