Travel Photo of the Day (March 27)

I took this picture as I was walking across the Harvard Bridge spanning the Charles River in Boston.  I was surprise to see such dark clouds (or was it smoke) hanging over the buildings on such a sunny day.

I wasn’t the only one who noticed.  This tourist also took a second look.

    Amazing shot, it does’t look like cloud 🙂 Anyway, still the Boston has its beauty because of Charles River 🙂

    I have lived on the northshore of Boston, I still miss it the city and the great nature that surrounds it.

  14. How strange! Reminds me of the marine layer in California. Great shots.

    Was there an eerie silence? 😉 The 2nd picture reminds me of the time the twin towers collapsed and the dust billowed over the city of NY…

    • TBM says:

      Oh goodness that is a scary memory. No there wasn’t any eerie silence, but I don’t remember any silence in Boston. The drivers there love to honk and to yell 🙂
