Another street scene taken in the Italian neighborhood of the North End. I found it so touching to see how this man was caring for his father. Between the confettis on the ground, the flowers and the Saints on the facade, I just knew I had to snap a picture. The light was also dancing around, like musical notes that follow a mysterious melody. Anyway I hope you like it! . . . . . #northend #northendboston #stanthonysfeast #igersboston25 ##citygrammers #city_features #pulseofboston #boston_community #street_photo_club #storyofthestreet #bostonglobelife #citybestpics #cityexplore #wearenewengland #streetstyle #streetphotography #street #streets #streetshot #streetsnap #landscape_captures #landscapephotography #instagramhub #people #bostonglobelife #proboston @FairmontCopley #igersboston @igersboston #igersboston_gallery17 #fairmontcopley
