I feel like I should find some sky shots from my trip to detail a little more completely the wonderful time we had... I love Boston. I wouldn't want to live there, but what an amazing place to experience and wander around. The historic value of a visit is immeasurable. The Paul Revere Statue is one of the most recognizable and highly photographed statues in Boston. Here, I have captured him from the backside with the quite charming St. Stephen's Church in the background, which I think is a lot more photographable than the Old North Church where the lanterns were hung at Paul Revere's request. According to my family, Paul Revere is a grandfather of mine, so this capture held special meaning for me. Here is the Old North Church.
Old North Church (officially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent.Not sure what building that is, just thought it was a cool shot!
Paul Revere told three Boston patriots to hang two lanterns in the steeple. The lanterns were displayed to send a warning to Charlestown patriots across the Charles River about the movements of the British Army.
Have a beautiful day!!
