Boston Picture Chain

The goal of this thread: each picture posted MUST contain an element shown in the previous picture.

Example: I post a picture of Central Plaza. The next person posts a picture of City Hall Plaza with Central Plaza behind it. The next picture is of City Hall Plaza with City Hall behind it. The next picture is of the Holocaust Memorial with City Hall Plaza showing between the glass columns. etc

I just want to see where this goes, it would be really interesting to see this end up crossing the city.

Just some general guidelines to keep things a bit more interesting:
- NO aerial photos, or that would make jumping across the city too easy. Pictures from buildings/roofs are fine though.
- Must be your own work. I'd just like to see us work through this on our own and maybe be encouraged to go out and try to get the next follow up shot.
- No moveable elements (cars, trucks, trains, a person) unless it remains in the same spot.
- No elements that are "the same, yet different" such as an identical billboard advertisement half way across the city, or the same lamppost style on some other street.



Alright, let's get this started.

Edit: Lets see how far we can go, geographically.

All lost for this sucker. Further, it was also one of the first buildings constructed after the early 90's recession. For me, who moved to Boston in the early 90's, it was the "canary in the cole mine" signaling the inadequate city's design review process that continues to the present.
