On Saturday afternoon, I met up with fellow JP residents Courtney and Darren for a fun afternoon of sunshine and drinks and pictures. Or at least, fun sunshine and fun drinks … Courtney is incredibly camera-shy and I’m pretty sure that the picture aspect of the afternoon was tortuous. I had fun though … and Courtney was an amazingly good sport (maybe she’ll even think it was worth it when she sees the photos – that’s my hope!)
We started out in beautiful Back Bay, amongst the brownstones. An easy warm-up walk-about to start, then some snuggles along Commonwealth Ave:
Comm Ave was pretty crazy (it was the first warm Saturday in a while) so we headed back to Marlborough Street for a little more privacy.
Those buildings, and those blossoms … so pretty! Next up was Eastern Standard in Kenmore Square, where Darren and Courtney met. They are still regulars and it was cute seeing them relax into their seats at the bar. I wish I could photograph drunk … the drinks looked amazing!
On the way to the bar I’d spotted this neat little bridge between the buildings at the back of Kenmore Square. I figured the light would be better if we waited a little, and I’m so glad we went back after drinks. I love these!
Our last stop was back in Jamaica Plain. We were originally planning on heading to JP Pond, but when we saw how busy it was everywhere we figured Olmstead Pond might be a better bet. I love this place – and It was my first time photographing here, which is always fun.
Thank you both so much for trusting me and my crazy big camera … and I hope there are at least a few shots that you can enjoy.
