When the blossoms pop in our historic Boston neighborhoods they can draw your attention to the architectural details on the building around them. One element makes the other more attractive. We love to photograph the combinations.
Penny was drawn to the texture of this weeping cherry tree contrasted with the front facade of 270 Commonwealth Avenue and submitted this shot for the cover photo of the Back Bay Sun. The copy reads:
Architecture Blossoms in Spring
“I don't divide architecture, landscape and gardening; to me they are one.”
(Luis Ramiro Barragán Morfín, Mexican architect 1902 – 1988)
Back Bay Sun
You can read some of the stories at the newspaper's website www.backbaysun.com and download a copy of the paper by clicking on the "Full Print Edition" icon in the left hand column. The new issue is usually on the website by Wednesday of each week. Since that icon only lasts until the next paper is published, we have uploaded a copy to this link, so that you can find it anytime.
In this earlier post is a list of the other places where you can find copies of this local paper. We usually get ours in the Circulation Room at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. There, you'll also find copies of the The Beacon Hill Times and the The North End Regional Review.
We are hearing from friends and neighbors and BostonZest readers who have left the area, that they like us connecting to copies of The Back Bay Sun. We plan to make this a regular feature to remind you of this great collection of local papers from the Independent Newspaper group.
Disclosure: The Independent Newspaper Group, owner of all three of these papers, is one of our freelance clients and you'll see our photographs, columns, and articles in their newpapers. Here are links to all their local papers.
