Love these shots! There's nothing like a beautiful port.

I grew up in Boston, and spent a lot of time around the waterfront.

Sim. Bonito e colorido, mas género ao longe... lidar com isso todos os dias deve ser um pouco seca.

I love the second photo here. The multitude of colored boxes in the foreground, then all of the boats in the middle, and bringing up the rear the multitude of buildings in the background. Great shot with a lot of depth.
