My new camera (a Canon PowerShot S200) arrived yesterday afternoon.
I'd gone out with it yesterday evening, but had been failing to use
macro mode, and was too tired and grumpy to get good shots.
As a real trial run for the camera, I decided to look in various
places along the train tracks between Broadway Street and over as far
as Fort Washington Park, in Cambridge. Pete stopped by to pick up some
stuff, and decided to join me.
Our first stop was on Broadway Street, where we poked around under
the rotating billboard and then in the mowed grass across the street.
We then walked along Vassar Street, and picked up the train tracks
again where they cross Mass. Ave. I didn't find much else of interest
until we reached the Fort Washington Park crossing, where I took the
rest of the pictures.
I introduced Pete to eating purple clover, and discouraged him from
taking home the big metal pipes.
