Photo of the week: New Year Sparks, Boston

Two lovers (?) share a kiss on New Year's Eve 2010 in the middle of Boston Common, overshadowed by the Hancock and Prudential towers.  This is a 10 second exposure, so I guess the kiss was too.

I love the romance of this image. We usually steer clear of taking pictures of people – but there was something about this couple that made us break our rules.

The black and white cityscape against the seemingly deserted park where two lovers meet as the midnight bells toll… It captures a moment and an emotion in time. It was taken during our recent city break, in Boston Common on New Year’s Eve.

It perfectly embodies the sleepiness that is Boston city at this time of the year – we’d frequently find ourselves alone in various areas of the city with not another soul to be seen. It captures that feeling of romance, of taking a moment in time as if no-one else is around. That’s why it’s my picture of the week.
