Photographer's Note

Taken from the Boston harbor the morning I flew home from Boston, after I realized Piers Park (with its famous view) was closed. I was staying at a hotel nearby because I had a flight at 7:30 am. So of course I got up at 4:30 am to catch blue hour (the weather forecast indicated there wouldn't be much of a sunrise).

I walked through East Boston, a rapidly gentrifying and beautiful neighborhood, to Piers Park. Gated and locked. Lest I thought of climbing the fence, there was a police car in the parking lot. Never mind.

Unfortunately, that left me without a good view of the harbor-front skyline with blue hour rapidly approaching. I hightailed it back through East Boston to Massport Harborwalk Park, which had no gates but unfortunately was much farther from the city skyline. By the time I got there, peak blue hour had come and gone. This was taken on the tail-end of blue hour, so it's not as vividly blue and contrasty as I'd like. But I still like it.

Boston's a great city. I was happy to be back.
