Photography Collection Summer 2013 - DryDock RX100 by fox-orian Photography Collection Summer 2013 - DryDock RX100 by fox-orian
While I'm developing Synthesis and doing contract work I can't post online, I'm still taking photos on my daily travels around the city!

Enjoy this collection from the South Boston Drydock. It's a very unique section of Boston where ships come in to get restored. Despite the areas run-down industrial appearance, there are many high-end design and architecture studios here, and the area is quite tech-savvy. I'd know, I'm currently doing work at one a few times a week. During my lunch break, I enjoy walking around the area to see what I can find. The photos you see here are comprised of two different walk-arounds.

From Facebook: "My photography and illustration are pretty inter-inspired. I take photos that remind me what I want to draw, and I draw what inspires me from my photos.

I'm also exploring new methods of post-production on these shots, using graded filters and stuff to get pretty different results, trying to make the colors *feel* more like how they felt while I was standing in these areas. Instagram, this is not."

Cool info I wrote about the first two photos on my Tumblr:
"The building I’m standing in is now called the Design Center. It was once used by the military to process recruits to make them fit for service in the 1940’s and 50’s. Recruits would enter at one end of the building, pass through it’s many internal sections, (checkups, equipment, etc,) and emerge out the other end as soldiers ready to be shipped off to war. The building is the size of a skyscraper laid on its side. It was going to be destroyed, but it was bought out by private companies to use as creative and studio space. There are now many high-end design and craft companies that occupy this building. Many areas are still unused, however, such as this room I came across in my spelunking."

All photos taken with the Sony Cybershot RX100, which is perhaps my most favorite gadget I've ever owned.

The information made it that much more intresting, who would have guessed?
Katterson Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I could tell this was Boston, great pictures!!! :)

It looks like a dirty version of Odaiba, Tokyo.
fox-orian Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
This is the area I was walking around in Boston:

Compared to Odaiba, hahah ehhh not totally. This is an old Boston industrial park. It may look dirty, but really it's just not very new. The are is surprisingly clean, except for one or two old abandoned military warhouses (see the last two photos of this collection.)

I'd kill for a chance to walk around there someday, though! The streetview around Odaiba looks amazing.
bliljerk101 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013
I see, I see. :) I took this picture at (i think) the Aomi station around the Odaiba area several months ago: [link] - For some reason, your pictures reminded me of this a lot. I highly recommend going to Tokyo if you get the chance ^^ Maybe I will go to Boston one day. I am actually from Pittsburgh, so it's not all that far from home.

As I scrolled down I thought to myself: "There are so many hints that this is Ireland, it must be Boston." ;) Nice shots, I like the colors and how clear it looks :)
