Boston Through My Eyes

Each week seems to fly by faster than when the Red Line T races past me on the tracks and makes my hair go everywhere. It’s crazy to think I’ve now been here for more than a month—which, in the grand scheme of things, is a relatively short time—and how much I’ve done and learned since it all began. In honor of my (more than) halfway point of being in Boston for the summer, I’m sharing some of my favorite pictures I’ve snapped while trapezing around this beautiful city.

Beacon Hill is a neighborhood full of charm and cobblestone alleyways (and lots of photo opps).

Fourth of July at the iconic Boston Pops Concert and Fireworks (an experience I’ll never forget)!

More Beacon Hill homes. (I love how everything is so symmetrical, yet the streets are slanted and hilly.)

@Whoever lives here—thank you for not walking outside as I snapped away at your picturesque home.

This Commonwealth Ave. brownstone (and the perfectly bloomed flowers) = a dream.

Next weekend, I’ll be heading to NYC for the annual Her Conference event, and after that, it’s already the end of July. There’s still a lot of work to be done, though (like my big intern project presentation) and fun to be had (like my first Red Sox game)—and plenty of other unexpected moments, adventurous morning commutes and eventful rides on the T. (My latest story is that one day, a conductor started *rapping* the words “Attention passengers.” At first, I thought it was just static from the microphone, but he quite literally made a beat out of the two words and continued to chant for the entirety of the route. At least it was entertaining!)

I’m excited to soak up the rest of my time here. It’s going to be a hard goodbye, but I’m trying not to think too much about that yet!

Until next time,

Darcy
