Summer evening

its hot! since days. i guess well above 30 degrees celsius (86F). sometimes theres some rain, but at some point the clouds recede and the sun is back at full force. i know not everyone likes it, but i do! we have the pool at our apartment complex so thats a great way to cool down (whenever we are allowed, ofcourse. the security murmured something the other day about "city regulations" to have it closed at 8 pm; as usual we were the last to leave, and really didnt want to. couldnt find anything about city regulations on google though...). 
evenings are lovely too. it remains warm.... so everyone is outside! this is at the boston common, yesterday evening (i just had an ice cream that i spilled all over my dress... grrr..actually, it turned out not to be the worst; later that evening almost an entire glass of beer got spilled onto my dress as well.. then it was really time to go home... ). in the front you can see the brewer fountain and behind it the state house. 
we really had a nice day, we started out with quite some swimming. as it was raining a tiny little bit, we had almost the entire place for ourselves. then some groceries and a walk through boston. eventually we got to the museum of fine arts, with free entrance as it was the first weekend of the month (with our bank card). some more walking, dinner, and eventually the ice cream and the beer... :) 
(the dress is clean again. and my shoes as well....)

Oh that is so nice to sit outside at a warm evening. We are not so used to it here because of the weather and I think therefore we appreciate it so much when it is possible. LOL about yout dress!

I like this evening shot, but the previous 'mailboxes' is a keeper for me.

Pretty evening, even if it turned out kind of messy.

Beer and ice cream. That is a bit of a bummer!

That's wonderful golden dome! Pity the tree is hiding the view of the building.

This is a great image, CaT. Most of the time the State House is set off in a very serious way, because it is an architectural icon and the capitol for an important state. You give it some fun. Do you think you see it differently because you are not a Boston native?

(Terrific posts from the Cape, too.)

thank you!
i dont know... i have never even been inside the state house, although they do free tours....
i actually usually do not even try to photograph its golden dome, as i never manage to frame it. this evening it suddenly all seemed right with the clouds and the people and the fountain...
