Paris in Boston:
Views of the City of Light from the City Upon a Hill

Posted by Teresa Hanafin April 9, 2009 06:27 PM

Paris, Hemingway wrote, is a "moveable feast" that stays with you no matter where you go. Photographer Jack Dzamba latched onto the idea and came to think of Boston in the same way. Suddenly, everywhere he looked, he saw intimations of Paris: the Cabot Building is reminiscent of Place des Voges, Genzyme headquarters at night recalls Notre Dame, and myriad hotels, restaurants, and shops, like Rouvalis Flowers on Beacon Hill (at left), exude an unmistakeable French flair. This book, with its moody black-and-white photographs of buildings and scenes, makes Dzamba's case for the link between the two great cities.

The final gallery is finished

Posted by Teresa Hanafin April 8, 2009 09:40 AM

I've finished the final gallery for the March "Nighttime" contest -- Gallery 6. If you don't see your photo in any of the galleries, it's because:

a) It was a sunset, dusk, or twilight shot
b) It wasn't taken at night
c) You entered more than one photo

See all the entries as they appear on Flickr here.

If you think I made a mistake, which believe me, is highly likely, just send me a note at raw@boston.com.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
