Boston's art and architecture

Brian and I took a bus tour of Boston's architectures, because we're nerds with Museum of Fine Arts membership cards. It was really pleasant and interesting to see our own city from a tour bus. I took a ton of pictures, but since it was cloudy, some of them are just eh. This is the Prudential Tower.

Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower in Copley Square

We got off the bus for a while and toured Beacon Hill on foot - for those who don't know this is one of the oldest swankiest neighborhoods in Boston.

Acorn Street. I'm told this is the most painted street in Boston - I can sorta see why. Hey, it's Brian. Becky left her photoblog account logged on and her computer on so I'm just adding a note. Actually, I'm pretty sure the guide said the most ‘photographed’ street in Boston.

After the bus tour returned us to the MFA, Brian and I wandered around for a bit to see how the massive additions and renovations are going, and we were shocked and speechless when we saw this - one of our favorite rooms in the museum. It's like seeing a library without books. See my January 21st entry to see what this room usually looks like.

Then we made our way over to the Boston Ahts Festival (I'm not making this up - that's how they were spelling it) at Columbus Park in the North End. Lots of beautiful paintings, photographs, jewelry and crafts, and did I mention the weather was really beautiful?

The view from the parking garage. Logan Airport is just out of site in this shot, so a moment before I got my camera out, we saw a plane land and it looked like it was just a few feet above the water.
