Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Ahts Edition

Street Photography:
One thing I love about Boston is the old cobble stone streets that are all around the city! This is at Quincy Market, so it's a promenade not a real street, but plenty of actual streets are like this too!

From a Distance:
This was a public art project at the Ahts Festival. Anyone could paint and it will be hung up somewhere in the city. I just loved looking at the mural from this view - and seeing the kids painting from a distance.

Keeping it real. Today, this is the mountain of readings and work I have to tackle. Now that school and classes are in full swing, this is what most Sundays will look like, with the occasional break for football...

When I saw this prompt I instantly thought about blowing glass and the demo at the festival. When glass is being made it's partially a liquid - and glass is often considered a supercooled liquid, rather then a solid. All glass starts in a molten liquid form!

I just meant to walk around the mural being painted at the festival, and much to my surprise, people had painted from behind too!

The cobblestones are indeed cool. I also like the liquid shot.

Kathy said... {Reply} your "ahts" phonetically written. Ahhh, Boston. Love that city, our first choice to live in when first married but we couldn't afford it! Hard to pick a favorite here, your entire set is wonderful! Love the perspective, colors and subject matter of "distance" prompt capture. Love the texture and composition of your "street photography". And I think it is super cool h ow you caught the reflection of that guy in the glass blowing bubble of your "liquid" shot. LOTS to love
here :). Have a great week!
