Boston Photo Project: November Issue

Hey pals! I’ve fallen off the grid, I’ll admit. Between classes, internship, and volunteer work (and trying to find time to sleep!), OSPL has fallen to the wayside. There’s only a couple weeks left of classes, though, and I have no idea what happened to me. It feels like I’ve only been at school for a month, but it also feels like I got run over by an airplane.

I’m now presenting you with the November issue of the Boston Photo Project. My friend Melissa and I, camera nerds and buddies that we are, walked three miles around Cambridge, getting to know the mysterious place across the river. As both of us have been to Harvard Square quite a few times, it was Kendall Square and MIT that intrigued us. This is partially due to the fact that we live in West Campus, which is the farthest away from the Mass Ave. bridge and MIT. So, two Saturdays ago, we took a walk across, and I must say, the views were stunning! I’m always happy to be pleasantly surprised.

On another note, I finally discovered how to change the settings on my camera so that I no longer have to shoot in RAW all the time. Hallelujah.

Backstory: I was standing on the double yellow to take this photo. I told Melissa to make sure  I didn’t get run over. The light changed. She panicked. The N00b driver decided that he couldn’t make his right turn while I was standing ON THE DOUBLE YELLOW (WHICH CARS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH/CROSS), so he beeped me!!!! And Melissa panicked. And then we ran out of the street. And we survived. The End. (Also PS— Toscanini’s is my favorite ice cream shop. I recommend the green tea and mango flavors. Absolutely divine.)

These leaves caught my eye as we were walking to Kendall Square, so I jaywalked (more like jay-ran) to this tree. Really disappointed that the house was in a state of disrepair (or repair? It just wasn’t looking too hot.) but the leaves…I love New England!! (Don’t tell Carly.)

This car. Looks like a galaxy. All I’m going to say is: RAD.

Notes:

Cover image was taken standing on the Mass. Ave. bridge. All other photos are spots in Cambridge.

Have fun looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary, friends!

Lots of love,
