Kenmore Square and the Citgo Sign

After last weekend’s wonderful visit to the Panopticon Gallery’s “Instant Connections” Polaroid exhibit, the mad race out of Kenmore Square was on. Usually pandemonium on wheels, because of Fenway Park, and just the plain “I’m a Bostonian, get out of my way” general attitude, it was surprisingly not busy. The Red Sox were in Texas, getting pounded and swept by the Rangers.  Got a couple of shots before the raindrops. Oh, the New England weather is so wonderful….not.

The Citgo Sign is somewhat of a Boston landmark, believe it or not. Visible from Fenway Park, home of The Boston Red Sox, it can also be used as a way to get your bearings, if you are going to the park by foot, maybe from a “T” station, or were actually brave enough to drive in. If going on a game day, public transportation is highly encouraged.

  1. This is something i love about about B&W: under the right conditions the pictures have an “old” look to them. the first one here is a great example. The exposure, grain, and setting make for a shot that might’ve come from an old magazine. Were it not for the modern cars one might think the CITGO sign was photoshopped in, because the rest of the shot looks so vintage.

  2. I’m just laughing at how you commented that Boston has horrible weather, all year round. Obviously you’ve never lived in western Pennsylvania, which receives 65 days of sun per year. In Boston, an average of 285 days a year are sunny. I’d take Boston weather over PA’s any day…except for maybe the wind. I love the photographs though! They look great!
