Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Great Charles Sea

Either it’s the Charles River and the Boston Riverline… or we can run with “sealine” (inverse of skyline) and proclaim the winding body of single-directionly-flowing water a sea. An anomalie in the sea space, a sinuous sea, snaking perhaps hundreds of miles with a narrow breadth… unlike its sea brethren that are typically awkward organic shapes that evoke the word “blob.”

Whatever the case, you’re sure to find two distinct groups of people on this bridge, no matter the hour. First, runners. They trot up one shoreline, cross a bridge, step along the opposite, and then complete the loop with this bridge. Hordes of’em, a constant stream of lean, fit bodies.

And the other is photographers, often in the way of the aforementioned runners. It’s a good view, simple as that. And depending on the time of day it just might be fantastic.

As the subway rumbles by.
