Abstract Bird's Eye View of Boston

On visits to Boston over the last year, on occasion I have lunched at the Top of the Hub, a restaurant on the 52 floor of the Prudential Tower. The food is fine, but the view rocks.

Here is shot of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) campus that sits astride the Charles River. I waited for cloud shadows to cover the background neighborhoods in order to highlight the school's buildings. Clarity is key with stock photography.

Though shot at a wider angle, the same campus scene can be found three times in this layered view.

A few weeks ago, I had my 2x teleconverter along, which doubled the magnification of my zoom lens, allowing me to get close - from above - to Boston's Back Bay neighborhood.

Speaking of Boston restaurants, I recently dined on scrumptious sushi at Haru.
