Quincy Quarries Meetup

Saturday (November 23, 2013) – I went to my first Boston Area Photography Meetup last Saturday. I had never been to the Quincy Quarries. It is very easy to get to, right off the highway on the other side of the rotary from the start of the Furnace Brook Parkway. I have driven that stretch of highway my entire life and never known it was up there. It is an interesting area, with tall, graffiti-covered rocks and spectacular views of the city in the distance. It attracts rock climbers and photographers alike. I wish I could have know about this area years ago before they drained and filled it in. I saw pictures from back when it was an active quarry and later when it was filled with water and it looked spectacular.

I met some great people that share my love of photography and hope to reconnect with them on future Meetups. We shared tips and tricks onsite at the Quarries and shared drinks and conversation afterwards at a nearby restaurant. Below are some of my favorite shots of the evening. Enjoy!
