Two arty things seen today.
The first was this graffiti on a brick wall on Boston Newbury’s Street. I was caught it from the right angle and thought the text and the tree were prefect juxtaposed:
The next is this thing made out of cardboard, it looks a bit like a kite and a totem pole done my Mr. Picasso:
It was in a tree near Boston’s MFA (Museum of Fine Arts).

Art on Boston University’s campus:
I won’t be in Boston for the fireworks show on July 4th. But if you show up at the last minute to see the fireworks, they start at 10.30pm, you can head onto to Harvard Bridge, commonly know as Mass Ave Bridge and get some decent view of the fireworks.
The last time I watched the fireworks from the bridge was in 2007, and I was near the middle at the 200 smoot mark:
The views of the fireworks was quite good, not as good as being on the river banks. Considering you could show up 5 minutes before the start of the display instead of 12 hours before is a good tradeoff in viewing quality. 🙂 Continue reading 4th of July Fireworks! →
Went for a walk along the Charles yesterday, what a great day, and it’s was nice and quite down there and a great to relax, chill and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And the MIT’er were out sailing too and it almost looks they were sailing on the ice.
And those are seagulls perched on the ice.
Got a tonne of snow about a week ago:
It’s still been lying around and slowly thawing and refreezing, and being ground down. Today it snow about 5 inches, and now it’s turned to rain/sleet and it’s a sloopy mess outside. Huge snow laden puddles everywhere.
A while back I scanned some old postcards of Donegal Town that I borrowed from my Aunty Isabel. They’ve been pretty popular on flickr.com, with this one getting over 900 views:
And this one getting over 1800 views:
Both of these were taken sometime in the 1970’s and I can’t take credit for taking the pictures, that would have been John Hinde or the postcard company he owned of the same name and sold in 1973 (right around the time these pictures were probably taken).
I really like these pics, they’re very nostalgic for me as the the postcard themselve remind me my childhood, as these were sold around the town up to the late 1980’s (even after the center of town changed they made the center into an open plaza with any cars on it). I can barely remember the town looking like, I would have been 3 or 4?
The first George the President:
Taken on a cool night with a full moon. I don’t like how my Panasonic takes nights shots, they seem to noisy (specklie) to be. I still think my 6 year old Canon S200 did a better job at night, and overall!
