Boston Waters

by Abigail Gossage June. 07, 2019 532 views

On arrival in Boston for a street/urban photography workshop with Steve Simon it became immediately obvious that much of Boston's history was formed by the fact that for a long time it was the premier port in North America until superceded by New York. So a fair amount of my time during my short stay was devoted to the waterfront.

The appearance of a WW 11 movie was achieved by shooting through the plastic window of the water taxi that ferried me from Logan Airport to the mainland. A wonderful way to travel from an airport!

Modern-day Boston encroaches into the harbor on man-made land.

There are a number of routes that keep the ferries busy; I found the water taxi more fun than a ferry would be.

As I had never been to Boston it was all good😃. Steve runs a real workshop not a photo tour so we had useful daily critiques. The critiques were intelligent and positive, add in new venues every day what more could you want?

To be honest I had not heard about him until your post, so naturally I had to look him up. By the sound of your response and his website seems like he is one of the better workshops to sign up for .

Yes, he did a Focus Series weekend for our PhotoClub a few years back so I knew what I was signing up for.  Always tricky to know who to go with, if I had not worked with him before I would not have done the workshop even though Boston was on my bucket list.
