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.
