The reading room (Bates Hall) at the main branch of the Boston Public Library.
This and the Schwarzman Building branch of the New York Public Library are two of my favorite buildings. Not just libraries–I mean just buildings to wander around and look at. And get lost in.

Shale Hill and the Vermont countryside after a day of racing.
All throughout the day at Saturday’s Tri-Obstaclon at Shale Hill, the sky had been mostly gray, and the rains had been constantly threatening. But in the end, nothing aside from a few drops. And then this at the end of the day.

Boston’s Back Bay, as viewed during the blue hour from the Cambridge side of the Charles River.
I have been meaning to get out to Boston to shoot a skyline sunset for some time, and I finally got off my butt and did it. Spent about 2 hours at different spots along Memorial Drive on the banks of the Charles, dodging joggers and bikers and chatting with the occasional fellow photographer.
One of these days, I think I need to learn how to properly use the Live View on my camera to get better focus after dark…

Sunset after a summer evening rainstorm. Nashua, NH.
One of my friends captured a shot of a complete rainbow about a block down the road from my house. By the time I got down there a few minutes later, the light had changed enough so that the rainbow was barely visible… but this was the view in the opposite direction from that same corner.
