Re: 2008 AB Award Nomination Thread - Best Photo

Citgo Sign with Moon-Castevens

Just an all-around awesome shot. A Boston landmark captured flawlessly, perfect lighting, and the bright glow of the biggest moon to be seen on Earth in recent memory. When you look at this shot, it just makes you happy to think that you're part of Boston.

It is a great shot, but way to ruin it with the commentary. I don't need cheese from the gallery. Makes you happy your part of Boston, WHEN YOUR NOT

Re: 2008 AB Award Nomination Thread - Best Photo

Van, permission to use colorful language?

Suffolk, go ahead an be an asshole, but my comment was absolutely appropriate. No I don't live there, but that's not the point. I love Boston, I love visiting, I love the teams, I love the establishments, and I used to live there. Boston is and forever will be a part of my life-whether I live there or not. That's what my comment meant, and if you weren't so dense, you would've understood that.

But hey, glad to see you making a positive contribution to the forum. Comments like yours are exactly what we need to be successful.

After that rebuttal, and considering this is a photo nominating thread, I'd be stupid not to nominate kennedy's avatar
