The Longfellow Bridge and the Cambridge skyline around Kendall Square are seen from alongside the Community Boathouse in Boston, Mass. The Charles River consumes most of the foreground. I had quite a stream of people take an interest. At one point there was a group of about five in back of me watching my progress. I got at least a couple of requests for a picture which I granted. One guy said he might be interested in buying and I told him I might sell. He said he'd come back after sunset, but I left before then and never saw him. I parked across the bridge in Cambridge. At one point a woman kneeled in front of me to take a photo. It would have been interesting to put her in the picture but she was there for too short a time.
The woman with the camera got me to thinking, and I later thought referring to myself as a ``human camera'' might be an interesting marketing approach. I thought I brought a lot more to my images than a mechanical camera did.
