Re: Best Photo Vote (CHOOSE 3)

Man, this is the worst award. It's so hard to narrow it down to three.

No matter what Piggiston is walking away with this award; I know two of my votes went to him/her.

Re: Best Photo Vote (CHOOSE 3)

Of all piggiston's awesome winter shots, I actually thought Beacon Hill Blizzard was the least interesting (though by no means bad! just that I admired the others more!) I wonder why people chose it over the others?

Re: Best Photo Vote (CHOOSE 3)

^ I'm curious as well. I'd expect to see the Beacon Hill shot in a magazine and the other two in a museum, if that makes any sense. All very good.

Nice that we managed to have two shots win due to the tie.

Quintessential Boston. History and beauty wrapped in a package.

The other two could be anywhere. #3 is really a Boston-only scene. #1 looks like it's from 1940 though. Really neat.

Re: Best Photo Vote (CHOOSE 3)

Whoa, I haven't been around here much lately! Thanks for making one of mine a co-winner! You guys are right that the Beacon Hill photo is, I don't know, a cliche or something, but I'll take the votes!

Boston02124, it's an honor to share a tie with you. That is such a magnificent shot—my favorite for sure!
