Scav Hunt Sunday: Splashes of Sun

 On a whim I chose to walk home from Fenway Park last week, rather than take the T.  Good thing I did since I heard a fountain and went "splash!"

 Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall in the background were built in the early 1800s are are still standing today. They are a popular tourist and shopping area, now-a-days and a fun spot to hang out on a nice day.

In the Sun:
 The temps were so summer-like this past week. People were out and about in Boston enjoying the warmth and sunshine!

Makes me Smile:
 I love watermelon. With the summer like weather I was so happy to see a street vendor at Quincy Market selling some fresh cut melon, it made me and my tummy smile!

Mellow yellow! I love how the yellow is also reflected in the knife's edge!

Great In the Sun shot! Such lovely colors --green and purple/pink. Nice composition, too. :)

Watermelon makes me smile, too! Since last week, I've been having watermelon every. single. day... and this will continue on for as long as watermelon is in season. I LOVE watermelon!

Your yellow is, of course, a stroke of genius (like minds and all that - wink wink). You have a great collection of shots for this week's words.

That yellow lemon popped right out of the linky at me. Great shot! Boston looks lovely in spring bloom. I was noting what a pretty time of year this is just yesterday.
You'll have to play with that fountain again another time. I like the one over by the Christin Science building and Prudential Center. Have a great day.

Boston is beautiful and your photos are stunning. My favorite is Quincy Market. I love how you captured the activity in the area as the frame of the building. And the sun flare is gorgeous.

Oh, I'm smiling at your watermelon too and great contrasting background. The only thing that would make me smile bigger is a bowl for myself! ha
