North End, Boston
I love that my job takes me to some really unique and beautiful places. Yeah, always being on the run can get a little crazy, some weeks it feels like I'm living out of a suitcase. But when it comes down to it all, I wouldn't want to change a thing about that.
A couple weeks ago a test shoot brought me to the North End in Boston. Ugh. This city is just one of my absolute favorite places. I fell in love with it over the past 2 years and plan on making it my permanent home one of these days.
When asked to photograph my favorite neighborhood in Boston, I immediately gravitated towards the North End. It's like the Little Italy of Boston, so I fit right in. There are pizza places on every corner and beautiful brick buildings in every direction. There are ice cream shops filled with gelato and pastry shops that have some of the best desserts (I, of course, had to enjoy a red velvet cupcake from Mike's Pastry!). All of the cafes, bistros and high end restaurants give off a delicious aroma of garlic and Italian cooking. I don't recommend walking the streets of the North End on an empty stomach, I don't think I've ever craved a bowl of pasta & meatballs more in my life! And not only is the food and atmosphere great but the history of the North End is incredibly intriguing. The Old North Church, the Freedom Trail, the Paul Revere statue, Copp's Hill Burying Ground... there's so much more. Seriously, what isn't there to love about this place?
Here are some outtakes from my trip...
Cheers, to doing what you love!
