Beautiful shot. I love this red building and its contrast to the almost colourless high-rise. Well photographed.

Nice colors and composition. I had not heard of the great Boston fire of 1872. Obviously a lot of old buildings survived.

Great view of the city for that angle. Really enjoyed visiting your blog space today, after having lived in the area for many years it was a trip down memory lane.
