It’s Patriot’s Day today and I have the day off. There’s a lot going on in Boston today (Boston Marathon and Red Sox game) so it’s nice not having to commute in to work. Although, I’m sure there would be a lot of good picture opportunities.
This is a shot of the State House on Beacon Street. I was at a conference in Boston for three days last week. On Friday, I was in town early so I decided to walk around and take some pictures. It was an overcast day so it didn’t make for a very nice sky. However, as you’ll see the rest of the week, I took pictures of flowers and the overcast sky actually helped to provide even light over the shots.
For anyone who may not know what Patriot’s Day is (it was the start of the Revolutionary War):
“The first battle of the American Revolution began at dawn, April 19, 1775, with a one-sided British victory in Lexington. Eight militiamen were killed and 10 wounded. It ended that evening with the British Regulars fighting for their lives on the road to Boston against nearly 4,000 Colonial militiamen.”
