I like Boston. If I left Chicago, it would be #2 on my places of cities to live in (first being San Diego -- suck it, winter).

Winter doesn't exist here.

Boston was pretty good for street photography. Distinctively different kind of people from NYC and by extension the interactions and emotions are unique to that city.

I'm still biased towards NYC for street photos though. There's no other city with diverse characters like the ones we have here.

Also you can walk around the various college campuses in the city. Very pretty, especially Harvard.
Thanks for the suggestions; I'm wise to the Freedom Trail for sure.

I really want to go to Yellowstone national park in the summer though.
Come to Kentucky! It rocks here! I haven't been to the UK in a couple of years. Need to get back soon.

What are some of you and the wife's hobbies, etc, besides photography?
Wife could care less about photography, so I'll have a bit of a leash when it comes to shooting

Yeah, I had figured in the touristy sites like the Freedom Trail. Any areas where there are abandoned buildings and such? And what about natural areas? Any good nature preserves or parks in the vicinity? Or just any interesting out of the way spots?

Definitely bringing the 135L for some street candids. Man do I wish I had the Canon TS-E 24mm. May see about renting it up there.

If you're looking for wide-open green spaces, they're hard to find in the city limits. The Boston Common is probably your best bet. You could always go up to Revere Beach, as well. If you have the time, taking the ferry to Provincetown is also a fun trip! If you don't want to go that far, though, I think you'll plenty to do in the city.

As I figured. I do enough nature photography here in KY, but still hoped to at least find some natural spots. Any such places in the vicinity, even if they're 50 miles away? Any decent waterfalls in MA? We should be staying there for quite a while, so we should have time for extra-urban excursions.

In that case, you can do Wachusett Mountain in Princeton (north-central, about 45 minutes from Boston), Walden Pond in the Lexington-Concord area (itself very pretty, especially Minuteman State Park), or Blue Hills Reservation. Not sure of any waterfalls in the area, though... Definitely in the western part of the state, but eastern not so much.

I'd be thankful to see any part of the world other than the part i live in at the moment. Not been away in a long while.
