Boston and Cape Cod

Winter is upon us and naturally this is when I find fit to go through pictures from summer. These pictures are from August, when we visited Boston and then Cape Cod on a long weekend.

We found an apartment in Cambridge for a night, and a room in a house in Duxbury for another night in Airbnb. This was our first time using Airbnb. At a fraction of the hotel room price, we had some memorable not-hotel experiences: searching for a hidden locker to find keys of the Cambridge apartment, on a Friday night past midnight, when many students were out partying; and meeting the jolly host of the Duxbury house.

(The heavy vignetting in some pictures is due to the indiscriminate use of a polarizing filter. But does the honey badger photographer ever give a damn?)
