Winter Storm Juno: Snow Day for Boston!

Snow day for Boston! – Work from home day for many like me. I did venture out however to the only store in Southie that was open – 7/11, thank heaven! 😉 I was surprised to see that there were many people out and about, mostly packed into the Lincoln and Stats (South Boston bars). Here are some of the scenes of the excursion (all shot with the iPhone!).

Very stylish. No doubt having to do with the strong winds that accompanied the snowfall.

Totally safe being that the only vehicles on the road were police SUVs, and plows.  F6C4D775-FDC0-41DC-9ADC-1EB15B834C6C B3E74E87-317F-4714-9FEC-A6839A43041C E6A6C00F-B952-4B54-830B-E80B633B1C21The MBTA may not be running, but the kids sled express is!

Southie Sunset :)

I discovered a great Boston sunset view from Southie’s castle island last week! It’s very peaceful if you can block out the children’s screams from the playground, the planes flying in overhead every five minutes, and loud conversations from passer-bys 🙂

I just recently purchased a Fuji X-E1 after breaking-up with my Fuji x100s…things just weren’t working out with that camera (I think I had a factory dud) 😦 and this was my first time getting comfortable with this camera. I love the feel of it! It sounds great too 🙂 But more importantly, the images it takes, look great! I’m no processing wiz, I am actually a super newbie, but It doesn’t take much to make these images look decent 🙂
