Ooops, trespassing!

yesterday tim said; i found a real cool spot to take some pictures! so after he picked me up from work, we drove there, parked the car at a deserted parking lot (only for students with permit; others will be towed; ofcourse we did not have a permit), and walked on the above road. it was cool indeed; this was right underneath the big dig! above us all the cars on the many roads leading into boston. i posted several pictures while driving there already. while driving i am always amazed by the many roads crossing/passing etc each other, to eventually all lead you, from all directions, into boston. the amount of concrete is amazing, but i wouldnt call it ugly... :)
we just walked, and we were right underneath the road that gets you to this spot. we walked on, and suddenly stood right in front of another landmark: the boston sand & gravel! it was cool, but also a little scary; normally there are gates, cameras, security and signs warning you to stay away. here; nothing! until we walked back and i found this sign; i cant blame us for missing that when we rushed by the first time.... :) perhaps we are now sought for trespassing and photographing potential targets. (girl with bright green sneakers and guy with red trousers; thats hard to miss on their closed circuit television!)

clicking this picture increases the quality. i think the website is downsizing your picture! Cool shot, but i wanted one with you in it hihi

perhaps their cameras only record in black and white... then we should be fine....

It's kind of scary how many places we are monitored by cameras now. Glad when I was growing up that wasn't the case, I probably would have ended up on YouTube quite a few times!
It's fun to go exploring like you did.

Very nice photo and exciting story, Big Brother looked the other way maybe.

CaT said...

thanks!
i guess big brother looked the other way indeed.. :D any moment i expected security asking what we were doing there... but it was soo deserted. in a way good we didnt see the sign before, surely i wouldnt have gone and would have missed being under the big dig!

aah, sylvia, maybe at another self portrait... but yes, my shoes are really really green and tims trousers very red.....

and yes... i love exploring... :D i hope we get more opportunities to do so...
