Walking Around Boston...

I spent most of last week in Boston at a medical meeting. I had the opportunity to walk around the city and do a bit of exploring. I only had my iPhone with me, but I'm happy with the results. I've heard that more photos are taken on iPhones every year than any other camera in the world. I usually don't post this many photos at once, but thought I would include them all and give you the full tour! Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!!

Boston night shots were taken with a hand-held iPhone steadied on a bridge rail.
So is it time to sell my heavy, clunky DSLR camera body and all the lenses I've accumulated? No, but it's sure nice to know I can get decent photos using my phone!

  3. Fantastic series. I live an hour outside of Boston and we go there fairly regularly for medical appointments. I always want to photograph the bridge at sunset… but it is either to early in the afternoon when we come home or too late at night. Thanks for letting me see what it would look like at that time! Your skyline and harbor shots are excellent too.

  4. Great shots. I used to master the camera in my old android but with the new phone I have I'm still learning how to take photos.

    Boston is one of the places I always wanted to visit.

  5. I really like the 'I think' 'grave yard with flags' piece, you have mastered it even with a phone. Very nice indeed.

  7. Ever since I "inherited" my wife's old iPhone (she just had to have the newest and latest) I've been sneaking in photos taken with it into my blog and no one is the wiser, unable to tell the difference from my Nikon DSLR images. Your pictures are great - proving the point.

  8. It truly is the eye not the camera!

  9. Great job, I really liked the pics especially those at the pier. I don't think cell phones displace dslr's but they take good photos in their own right. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a camera with nice lenses that has the same functionality of a iphone.

  10. Wonderful shots! I think the iPhone does a great job in the right hands.

  11. Don't have an iphone though I do have a ipod I use sometimes. I've been to Boston a couple of times working at MIT. Had a good look round the city though you have shown places I've not visited though the one place I did was that boat but I don't remember the ramp being there when I visited. Wish I had been to the cemetery though.

  13. Indeed great shots. I have an iphone but never use it for photography, perhaps by seeing this I have to reconsider.

  14. Wow, gorgeous series of images. Boston looks like a beautiful city and the sky looks lovely too. I do not have an iphone, maybe someday. Happy Friday, have a great weekend!

  16. Boston, just an hour away from me and I avoid it like the plague lol, The only time to go there is to watch the Red Sox and only if a friend drives ;)

  17. These are fantastic photos and I live North of Boston so have spent lots of time in places you have photographed!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  18. I'm aghast. You traveled without your dslr? (he swoons)

  19. Incredible results from a phone and it seems that wherever you go you find wonderful skies. The only time we were in Boston it just tipped down with rain (perhaps because we were English!) We looked around a number of graveyards when we were in New England, discovering some amazing names. They are always interesting places.

  31. I almost always resort to my iPhone for landscape shots. It does a spectacular job, as you've proven with this amazing collection. I've never tried to use it at night, though. You did a beautiful job.

  32. You got some wonderful images on your phone camera and I think you used that wonderful program of yours too as the photos look awesome. I hope all went well with the medical appointments. It looks like Boston is quite pretty.

  34. First chance I've had to visit in a while.... Awesome pics. You had excellent weather while you were there. I'm originally from New England and miss the area. Each year, I try to get there in the early fall as the leaves begin to change. My family is there. Thanks for sharing.
