Bricks are the asphalt of old Boston and Cambridge.

I’ve been in Cambridge, MA for the past four days visiting my brother, who’s attending Harvard Law School. After having dinner in Boston’s North End last night, my family and I took a trip out to Boston today, visiting Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, and the surrounding areas.

Not having been here in a long time, I could easily forget that Boston and Cambridge are very, very old cities. But even here, where there are numerous landmarks to document, I wouldn’t try to take very interesting photos with my iPhone 4 (my Canon 60D didn’t come on this trip), save for the occasional Instagram or picture for Twitter. But the picture above, taken mistakenly while fidgeting with my phone, offered some cool focus and blur effects I could never have achieved if actually trying. Cool road surfaces and boat shoes prove somewhat picturesque in this odd mistake that I actually rather enjoy.
