Our photos of the week are from this week's snow storm in Boston.
The archtecture in the Back Bay was made for snowy scenes. The crisp, white snow brings out the colors that are actually there but not always seen.
Not all the brick in the Back Bay Historic District is red in tone. This building had a new facade added and the brick of choice was a bright yellowish beige.
As I stood in the middle of two rows of trees on the outbound side of the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, I remembered hearing Commonwealth Avenue Mall expert Margaret Pokorney explain that, at one time, a group was advocating for and actually succeeded in having a third row of trees planted up the center of this space.
Seeing the branches intertwined and loving the view down the open space makes me glad more intelligent minds prevailed.
Everyone seemed to be out taking photos. I hope that the other photographers joined me in taking a few moments to lower their cameras or phones and simply enjoyed the scene. The photos you etch into your heart and mind can be just as lasting as those in film, print, or digital form.
