It's time for a new post. Even I'm getting sick of looking at my old one, so I'm sure you are too. I didn't think I'd have any more Subway Stories, but I guess you never know.
One night last week, I was walking from my office to South Station and the sun was setting. I noticed the bright blue of the sky contrasting against the stark lines of the buildings and it looked beautiful, so I grabbed my camera phone and started shooting. I've been noticing the lines of buildings and blue sky thanks to inspiration from Suttonhoo. Look at her great pictures here.
I'm really not that far away from my old office, but the landscape of the city is so different here.
Although, the Back Bay has the Prudential and John Hancock buildings, there seem to be many more really tall buildings in the Financial District. I'm not sure if that is true or not. Anyone out there know?
It must be an incredible feeling to be an architect with an idea for a building, then see it come to fruition and literally change the look of a city. Boston is full of a lot of contrasting architecture. New buildings close to very old ones. I guess it can be sort of a mishmash, but I like it. See the contrast between the Old South Station building and the entrance to the new South Station? There are several new entrances and they look like pyramids. I'm sure there must be some tempermental Bostonians who can't stand them.
This post is getting too long, so let me start to bring this baby to a close. I'm growing accustomed to my new surroundings - like the Federal Reserve Building. It looks like it's ascending to heaven. All that money. I actually took a tour of it during law school for a banking class. I saw someone's check lying on the floor. That couldn't be good.
There's just one more thing about the next few days that is intriguing me. I admit to reading my horoscope everyday and think that there is something to astrology. I like this one here,because it gives general information for everyone about planetary happenings. Below is a partial summary from Friday's Daily Cosmic Calendar, by Mark Lerner.
"At certain times of any given year, I usually issue a Red Alert. This happens when there is a clustering of intensive sky patterns that converge within a few days. That's what's going on from now through at least Monday - although a conservative astrologer might extend this celestial caution and uneasiness through May 10. However, within this stressful time-period, a Blue Alert also occurs. The blue coloring signifies breakthrough potential - particularly in the realms of education, publishing, business and professional matters."I took notice of this one. With all the changes that have been happening, I won't be too shocked if things continue to be stirred up. And maybe on some level, this is why I was so enchanted by the sky.
