Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

DZ,
To clarify: my comments about "redundancy" were about the recurrent height-related arguments, not about the photo sets. Count me in as one who really appreciates the photos and the associated effort.

DZH22, in the board issues forum, I have requested a like button because I understand how much work goes into posting new photos

Thanks for the clarification. My ire was directed at another user!

This is a good idea. They use it on Skyscrapercity and it beats the heck out of a page full of "nice picture!" posts. It's an unobtrusive way to validate someone's efforts. Not just pictures either. For instance, when equilibria links to project pdf's, or datadyne rips the key points, or stick gathers the renders, these are invaluable contributions to this site and thank you for the updates!

For what it's worth, and as a long-time lurker/one-time poster who's gone fairly quiet, I really appreciate you posting pics of activity around town. Thanks, sincerely. Please, keep it up.

In my own professional life, folks like you help when folks like me when we need to research the evolution of a building/block/neighborhood, so as to better understand the historical use and context of a place slated to undergo renovation/restoration.

Again, thank you.

Anyone have any pics or know what the view is approaching 128 eastbound on the pike?

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

^^assuming you're referring to DZ's above shot/s. His mystery spot, and that other place he shoots (i think Belmont Hill?) suggests there is a great place to fly a drone–that a good, enhanced shot of Boston's drawn out, malnourished skyline is there to be had: probably a mile or 2 south of Belmont Hill, similar to these above shots, but just closer in. My completely harmless suggestion that drones produce the more flattering, aerial shots of Boston (vs aircraft photos) triggered more boisterous, buffoonery from the aB peanut gallery. Whatever.

DZ: your photo contributions are hugely appreciated.

Above pics are from Doublet Hill in Weston. My other "mystery spots" are probably either Robbins Farm Park (close to Belmont Hill) or Hattie Symmes Park, both in Arlington.

Others that get some regular visits are Horn Pond in Woburn, Prospect Hill Waltham, and Mt Auburn Cemetery in Watertown.
