With a room that has a view
of Boston, I could not avoid learning all the nuances that weather
and time of day impose on the sky line. And of course I have
attempted to take pictures of it. Below I have included a couple
I think are especially nice.
After I spent an all nighter on some PSet, a sunrise offered
a much - needed reward. 5 am in September 1997. That speck is
a plane. And yes, I do walk around with my camera at random times.
Same place, but during a blackout in the dorm. With nothing
else to do, I wandered around with my camera. Viola.
Seen form across the bay, Boston seems mostly harmless. I am
beginning the like this city.
After three point five years here, I can say that I know Cambridge
quite well. But Boston somehow remains pretty much unexplored.
Sure, I ran or biked through it dozens of times, visited restaurants,
shops, and nightclubs. But I still need to wander a bit more in
the seemingly aimless but exploratory fashion. I could memorize
all the maps, see all the streets, but without such wanderings
I will never know this city.
Boston has a pretty good electronic presence. No wonder, with
all the schools around and in it. Visit Boston.com
(not related to the Boston Globe) if you wish to find out more.
I leave cities to find solitude. The mountains and the sea
