Food trucks on Belvidere Street

On the street between the fountains of the Christian Science Center and the Prudential Center. Food trucks like these can be found all over the city, which is a good thing for tourists who don't want to spend too much time or money in a restaurant while touring the city; and it's a cheap and easy meal for nearby office workers.

Happy Father's Day

It's Father's Day in the U.S. and I thought I would post a picture of my father when he was a young man. This photo was taken at a friend's wedding in 1950; his whole life still ahead of him. He survived WWII and the Battle of the Bulge to come home and eventually raise six kids with my mother. He's been gone a long time, but he's still missed.

Filene's of Boston Building Site

View of the new 52 story building going up (with red crane) on the site of the original Filene's of Boston, as viewed from the Boston Common, June 18, 2015.

You can see a different perspective from one of my earlier posts of this building from February 2014.

Here is another view of the building site, when the old Filene's was being torn down, from April 12, 2008.
