Crossing To Cambridge

If you’ve ever been to Boston then you know that on one side of the Charles River is Boston and the other side is Cambridge and home of MIT and Harvard.



On a trip to Boston recently I spent one part of the day on the Cambridge side and the other on the Boston side.  The goal was to photograph the river from multiple angles.

This photograph was from the Boston side in a park with a lot of benches and ducks.

This long exposure photograph had an exposure that extended enough time to make the ducks disappear.  Really the ducks were all over that water.

Sometimes ducks do not belong in photographs, so making a long exposure photograph can remove them.

This photograph was processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Oh, and funny story… When I was going to school at Berklee College of Music I decided one night to go to see a band play at a bar in Cambridge. I took the subway as far as I could towards the venue and then walked the remainder. After the show ended, shortly following midnight, I decided to walk all the way back to my dorm. Turned out it was snowing and very cold. I do not know what made me decide to do that but I did. Obviously it was a night I would never forget. So if you are ever thinking about walking in the freezing cold, and in snow, from Cambridge to Boston, really think hard. It’s a beautiful walk, but ever longer in the snow.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
