In 1998 I spent some time studying and working in Boston. I had a Pentax film camera in those days. I am trying to digitise all my negatives currently. If I find any nice ones, I’ll post them here, just for a bit of variety. I’m not sure how often this will happen. By the way I was hopeless at labelling and archiving my negatives. 🙂

The black and white version seems so much colder, somehow, than the color one!
I think the green adds a bit of warmth to the photo. In reality, to someone from Sydney, it was far from warm that day.
I’m from Texas, so it looks far from warm to me as well!
Again you take my breath away with your photography. Is your work available in galleries?
Thank you for your very kind words. 🙂
No galleries; just here.
Each version has its own merits – I tend to favor the color image – which is surprising as I am very invested in B&W imaging.
Yes that is interesting. There’s also a deliberate reduction in structure and clarity in the B&W version.
This is wonderful in black and white!
I look forward to seeing more.
Thank you. I’m still learning how to scan old negatives, so it’ll be a slow process.
I really like the Black and white one, the cool grey tones make it feel more icy – gorgeous picture! 😀
Especially love the B&W. I will be headed up to that location tomorrow for work and staying through Saturday evening. I’m excited to get lots of new photos!
Thanks. I look forward to seeing your photos.
Do post (many) more. Look forward to seeing your film work. 🙂
Thank you. Thankfully Lightroom does a good job at dust spot removal – such tedious work!
This one is really quite beautiful.
Boston! 🙂 I can’t remember how many times I walked down this path!
I only experienced it in Winter. 🙂
Reading this post from so long ago, I feel embarrassed that I’ve given up copying my negatives to digital.
Boston has four distinct seasons; each one is amazing; but if one is from a warm climate the first Winter there might be a bit of a shock 🙂
You are not alone in dealing with negatives. I’ve got piles of them waiting to be scanned. I even bought a scanner to do that and it’s just gathering dust.
Yes, winter was a shock but walking through a light dusting of snow at Harvard was magical. 🙂
And yes again, my scanner is gathering dust as well. It’s just too time consuming.
