This is a wonderful photo - such clean lines & curves. I like the pairing with the concave curved bench in yesterday's photo.

Came here from Tash's site, all the way from Australia.

I really like the geometry of this shot - parallel dark lines, gentle light-coloured arcs and even a concealed angle or two.

Great work!

Oh I love this. I'm not playing mono today, but your mono shot of this bench is terrific. Very clear and great perspective.

ooooh! It's in Post Office square! I'm obsessed with eyerything postal related... I guess even benches.)

Robin said...

Wonderful the way the lines and curves of the bench so perfectly echo the lines and curves of the path. Street furniture at its finest.

The bench is the cool design.
But it seems to come to have a pain in the hips.
Great photo!

I liked that one very much. Fine pattern and the way that bench was put on top of the low wall.

I second Tash and David.
The sequence below is really great also - the shop interior is classic.

We could all write a movie script by writing a few sentences about these photos. The furnace repair man from Quincy Daily Photo could come over and sit on this bench! Great curves.

It has all already been said. I really love that curve.

Looks like it was such a quiet day in Boston. There's something so serene about the curve of that bench.

Very nice!

I'm your neighbor in Western Massachusetts. My daughter attends Boston University, so I visit a lot.

I look forward to more visits here to see your wonderful Boston shots!

Great B&W shot with very nice lines to lead the eye.

Daryl said...

Lovely angles/arcs

Snapshutter said...

Nice line and curves. Works well with B&W.

Babooshka said...

It's the whole sweeping curve that grabs me and how clean the scene is, no litter.

Malyss said...

Arcs and curves, like an invert echo of yesterday's picture...

PERBS said...

Another neat bench! It certainly looks comfortable! Also a nice area to sit and people watch!
