Boston Skyline from Fan Pier

After I left Prudential Skywalk, I went to the Fan Pier again. It is my third time being there although I still had trouble getting there. I don’t think I am alone when I claim that the Boston downtown is nightmare for drivers. I forgot to bring a real GPS so I have to use the phone GPS which is a joke. 90% of the time, the phone GPS couldn’t find its location. I constantly stopped on the side to figure out what’s next. There are also many underground tunnels in the area. If you get into one by mistake, you will be far away when you can make a U-turn, which is what happened to me last time.


I took this shot using my favorite super wide angle lens – Rokinon 14mm prime. I went down through a dock to a platform below the road. The platform is on the water but very steady. It is very close to the buildings on the other side. The whole scene fits in perfectly in a 14mm.
