Copley Square – Then and Now

Seriously! Give it a rest why don’t you winter!!!  Enough! Cold, snow, wind chills, more snow and then more snow on top of that!  I’m thankful that while it’s been awfully cold here in Ohio we have not had to suffer with Snowmaggedon like in the northeast.  I saw a photo online the other day of them scaling “mountains” of snow at MIT in Cambridge, Mass and some guy playing golf on a mound of snow in Copley Square…so I decided to do a then and now post.  Winter bites!

      Thank you and it is now -6 F here. Spring cannot get her soon enough!

    That’s a fun comparison!

    Attended Trinity Church growing up in Lexington. Love both shots and the comparison. Hard to complain about our weather in Columbus seeing what they’ve gone through.

      Thanks 🙂 Very true! But this below zero stuff has got to go!!!!!!!!!

    I like the perspective you took on the shot of the Hancock Tower. Shooting at the corner gives it an interesting perspective. Nice. The Boston Globe (Boston.com) always has great images.

      Thank you for telling me what the reflecting building was! Taking that corner shot reflects the church and another building but it almost looks like it could be a wraparound of the same. And you are right, the Globe takes some awesome images.

        The Hancock has an infamous history. When it was first built, the windows kept falling out! It took months and a sizeable budget to remedy.

        And when I return I will make sure to not walk on that side of the street!!!

    Nice reflective image. I’d think that those in the Boston area would prefer this scene to the one that they now have. When you get back to Boston if you’ve not photographed inside the Public Library, you really should. It has some great spaces included the reading room.

      Thanks for the tip! We stayed at a hotel right behind the library and walked past it everyday…wish I had known this then but will put it on my to do list. Went to the NYC public library last year and the best parts were closed for remodeling 😦

    Great photos! The reflection in the first is stunning!

      When I was standing there photographing the church I turned and saw the reflection and HAD to capture it! Thanks

    This is really cool! I’m so amazed at how you just “happen” upon such incredible sights. Great contrast.

      One must keep their eyes open to see what is there! Said in my best Sensei voice 😉

    This too shall pass…only a few more weeks and the allergy season begins. Enjoy the weekend and stay warm.

      Cold and flu season vs. warmer and allergy season… I think you know what might win 😉
