A train full of weary commuters, a walk down pedestrian-indifferent suburban streets, a superb lecture by a consummate photo pro, and finally a bus full of nighttime travelers to the city. Only when I’m outside of the heart of Boston do I realize that everything ain’t like the middle of town, no sir.

Though the journey itself was perhaps inconvenient, it was a great reminder of how there’s just something about the journey itself. I think differently when in new places, e.g. trudging through muck and brambles as a two-mile stretch of puttering automobiles grumble by in a darkness punctuated only by a million headlights. That’s a much different environment than my comfortable little apartment on the Bostonian beacon-bump.

And beyond the thinking, there’s of course the seeing of it all. In this particular case I just couldn’t help myself, I had to pull it out and shoot upwards with that loading dock and bank of illuminated trees across the freeway with twinklers above. Turns out it was the driveway of the destination.

A most excellent talk, Mr. Blake.
