Silent Sunday: Roslindale (Boston, MA)

When I ventured off to Roslindale, one of Boston’s many neighborhoods, for a project I was recently worked on for, I went out with no expectations.  The research I did prior to the shoot was minimal… I figured that I’d find some spots along the way to take pictures of, but never did I imagine to find a thriving town, one filled with food, arts, and parks.  I loved the murals that lined the town’s walls and was struck by the number of restaurants, bakeries, and gourmet food shops.  The farmer’s market I came across was an added bonus.  And I can’t forget to mention the Arnold Arboretum, a beautiful reservation that’s part of Boston’s Emerald Necklace.

Love these Silent Sunday posts. These are so helpful for food lovers that live in the vicinity of Boston or plan on visiting the area. I always appreciate how many wonderful little gems exist in your neck of the woods. Beautiful captures. I love that grilled bread salad. Yum!

I love this post. When we move, we will be very close to Roslindale, and I am looking forward to exploring the area.

As always my fave. Your photos are so vivid, I can almost smell the air. You have a beautiful city, Brian, and some of my favorite memories are from there. Wonderful!

You are good, my friend. Looking at your photos always makes me feel as though I’m part of a very pleasant dream…they have such an ethereal quality to them. I can’t wait to visit your city in April!

Rozzie! That’s where I used to live. Miss that area. One of the city’s best restaurants is in the square…Sophia’s Grotto.

What a cute town, and all those glorious cheeses make my head spin!

In spite of growing up in the area, I am gaining a whole new appreciation of Boston thanks to your wonderful Silent Sunday posts. :) Look forward to your next one!

I love visiting places with a camera, discovering everything… I think we sometimes see more and see things in a different way when we go out looking for a great shot. I really want to come visit!

Looks like a vibrant and lively neighborhood! Very cool tour. Thanks!

You know you are always welcome to visit. We’d have a great time together :-)

If you ever venture back into the Roslindale/West Roxbury area, and you like brunch, you should definitely check out The Rox Diner. I’d guarantee it’s the best breakfast place around.

That’s my farmers market! LOL! Rosi square has some great gems!

Scott LucasJanuary 31, 2013 - 4:25 pm

Your farmer’s market? We went there once!!!!
