I did this because it was mine for the taking.
The northeast is a weird place to live. Now, I grew up in New Jersey so I’ve experienced the randomness of seasons, but Boston sometimes pushes it to a whole new level. When I first got to BU, the best piece of information I got about the city was, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes.”
It’s true. We’re on the first day of February here, and it was 56 degrees today. This makes no sense based on science, the internet, and I don’t have a third thing to put in this list. I decided to take advantage of the moment because, well, it was there for the taking. I hopped on my bike at 4:30pm with all of my camera equipment and took a nice ride through the city. Wind in my hair, skyscrapers rising from the sidewalks around me, and the fun that comes with challenging motor vehicles for the road while riding a Schwinn all added to a perfect evening.
After shooting down by the water front for a bit, it started to rain. I quickly packed up my equipment and ran for cover, but it was useless. 5 minutes later, the rain had stopped.
I got back on my bike and rode to the Boston Public Garden where I took this shot. This little suspension bridge, in my opinion, is one of the coolest fixtures in the entire city. It actually used to be the world’s shortest suspension bridge, but was converted a couple decades ago so that the suspension is now only decorative.
I eventually got home, relaxed, and now I’m winding down and getting ready to head to bed. I’ve been so busy recently with my school work, my job, and mock trial that I haven’t had any “me” time. So I guess what I’m trying to say is that this was a nice treat. I hope that all of my followers took advantage of the warm weather as well!
