Photographer's Note

As has been pointed out before, for someone who lives near Boston, I post Boston shots far less than I really should. So, recently I've gotten the sunrise bug and have been getting up at very obscene and early hours to go out shooting.

One of my more recent trips led me to South Boston's harborside area, behind the new Moakley Federal Courthouse (for those of you in the states or who follow American crime stories, this is the courthouse where notorious Boston mobster James 'Whitey' Bulger was recently tried and convicted). The area along the harbor in South Boston was until recently a pretty empty spot, lined with industrial warehouses and empty lots, but it has seen a construction boom in the last decade. This has been both good and bad; it has revitalized an area that was something of a wasteland, but it has also destroyed most of the harborside's beautiful views of downtown Boston. This is the only spot left where you can get a really nice, unobstructed view like this one anymore.
