NEWF Thursday 1/24/13: Dangerous Cold, CityFeast, Opera Games, Parcel 9, Ladder No. 1 Promotion and Pilot House Photo

Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

I took a series of photos from a winter harbor cruise including this one of the Pilot House at Lewis Wharf. It was a very overcast day, so I merged different exposures to create a more interesting painterly effect. More to come in a gallery of “Boston Harbor: Working Port.”

What people are talking about:

Well, I think it’s fair to say the comments are a bit off the rails under the trash survey and basketball court parking posts. In the last week, however, the most clicked posts are about the Supermarket and Cobblestone Cafe.

Your comments are highly encouraged!
