January 1, 2009 - Theme Day: Best Photo of 2008


I took this photo outside the newly opened Fenway entrance of the Museum of Fine Arts. Today's theme is Best photo of the year 2008; while I don't think this is my best work, it is one of my favorites.

Nice photo. The head sculpture and the little boy walking makes an excellent photograph.

Happy New Year to you and your family from Patty and Abe.

Absolute stunner of a photograph. Should be blown up and put in museum.

Have a great New Year, Clueless in Boston. Look forward to more great pics thru the year.

That must be one heck of a great telephoto lens because the little boy looks so close up. (Well, even Hubby didn't understand the joke. Oh well...)

Happy New Year.

Buck said...

Neato! Glad I clicked on this, otherwise wouldn't have seen the boy walking back there.

That is a delightful choice and I love the scale and composition and contrast of b&w / child and child head. But, this is the one I fell in love with most:

I love your architectural detail shots, too, and when you capture old and new elements of Boston in the same frame.
I hope 2009 holds wonderful things for you and that you and your camera find lots more stunning compositions and scenes to show us! Best to you,

I like its whimsy too

Happy New Year!

Kate said...

It's obvious why this is your favorite...it is quite unusual. Initially, I found it a bit startling, but it definitely is an eye-catching subject. The uniformity of the pillars in the background adds interest.

Laurie said...

I remember this gorgeous shot! I emailed the link to everyone in my address book! Perfect choice for theme day.

Happy 2009! May the new year bring joy ,peace and happiness.

"Mind-blowing" was the first phrase that came to mind, for some reason. I'm seeing this for the first time -- Excellent!

I'm a week behind, but just wanted to say, this is an excellent choice for your Photo of the Year. I remember the first time I saw it, it cracked me up. It still does!
