The beginning of the year I headed down to Boston, and then to Mystic Connecticut for a Photography Conference. Mystic 7 (the conference) was awesome. So different from other conferences I’ve gone to, where there are thousands of attendees. This is a much more intimate conference, likely because it seems to be in the middle of nowhere ;) Which makes it more focused on learning. I have too many notes and ideas to even begin to process. I had to create a short list of all the immediate lessons learned. Though I actually have no pictures from the conference, I do have a few from Boston. I ventured down with the lovely Nataschia. Turns out she’s quite fun and we make excellent travel partners. We had two days to spend walking the streets of Boston, which I could spend my life doing, just walking around a city. Turns out I knew pretty much nothing about Boston, except for the fact that I love a good Boston accent; Harvard is there; and they have some type sports team, called the Red Sox. All of which I’d say I learned from Good Will Hunting. After hitting just about all the boroughs, the commons, the cobblestone, the wharf, and a few pubs along the way, we obviously found ourselves at Newbury Street. That was about the end of the pictures, due to my powers of persuasion, I convinced Nataschia that she could not continue life without a pair of premium denim. After all my points were concluded and she was sold, she was like a tiger on the prowl, searching for the perfect pair. Which of course, we found. I would wager that she has not taken them off since ;)
A few shots of Boston.
Nataschia and I without knowing it, had chosen almost identical boots to be walking around Boston in. We had a few comments from stranger. With good reason.
