Daryl said...

I love Boston and what a perfect place to spend the 4th .. your POV of the new bridge is excellent .. I was so wanting to get a photo of it when I was there last but we were driving and there was no way I could 'see' the top from inside the car!!!!!!!!

Lew said...

Great shots from your 4-th of July trip! I like the two of the bridge. Interesting design. Google maps has a good detailed view from overhead on its satellite images.

Travis said...

That WW graphic looks great! Of course I enjoyed the rest of the pictures too!

Cheers!
