Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week – Cityscape/Townscape
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING CITIES OR TOWNS.
I had the good fortune this past weekend to visit with my son, his girlfriend and their sweet pup. They live in the Boston area in a 4th floor walkup apartment. Lots of walking ensued…over 12,000 steps worth.
I also didn’t miss the opportunity to run into the middle of the street for photo ops along the way.
Boston and its suburbs – which often have the same look and feel of Boston proper – offer the usual old city buildings packed in amongst newer, more trendy coffee shops and ice cream stores. Apartments. Duplex homes and condos. A blend of the historical and present day.
Fortunately the snow had melted off the sidewalks and the sun was shining when we arrived at the Coolidge Corner subway stop in Brookline on Saturday.
On the way to my son’s apartment…a canopy of trees caught my eye.
However, when we turned the corner heading out of Brookline…I noticed a strange parade approaching.
One I did not expect to see in the middle of a suburb of a major city.
Waiting for no one to stop or move over, they just marched on from one corner to the next…hurrying on their way.
Part of the cityscape…no fear.
