Theme Day - April 2008- WATER

Once again it is Theme Day for the Daily City Photo Blog Community and the theme this month is WATER. I'm presenting a classic view of the city I took last June, overlooking the Charles River from the Longfellow Bridge. In the foreground you can see the Charles River Esplanade and in the background some of Boston's notable buildings, the Hancock and Prudential Towers.

Below is a list of the 178 cities around the world participating. Please try to visit as many as possible and leave a brief message of greetings. And have fun!

Every town that is on water, river or sea, is a lucky one.
Boston is one of them,and your picture proves it.

I like that view from the Longfellow Bridge. Puts the glass towers into a less imposing perspective.

magiceye said...

a great view!

Gordon said...

A beautiful view; looks like the kind of place I would like for sailing.

Nathalie H.D. said...

Ahem, a fairly old shot, looking at the trees. But so beautiful. April fool if you think Boston looks like this now...

Ham said...

Great view, just the sort of place for a tea party ;-)

Wow, so beautiful and it looks much better when enlarged.

An impressive waterfront skyline.

Boston seems to be a beautiful city.
I'll come back here regularly to see your pictures.
I love the quote of Groucho Marx...
Thank you for your visit in Marseille

Kate said...

A visit to your city is enhanced by the really wonderful view of buildings and water. PS The music is great!

Kate said...

Oops! I wrote re. music on the wrong blog. Go to Mexico City to hear it.

Chris said...

Beautiful shot of the city.

Janet said...

Great view! Boston certainly doesn't lack for water.

It is a dream landscape, super photo

Jilly said...

beautiful photo of your fabulous city.

Kim said...

I like seeing this sunny June version of your fair city. Makes me feel hopeful that the earth is still turning and traveling around the sun and that eventually winter will HAVE to let go. Beautiful shot. Happy theme day!
