Aby-a-Day – July 26: “Wet” (Saturday Photo Hunt)

This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Wet.”


Jacoby is not especially afraid of getting wet. In some ways this is a bad thing, because the traditional spray bottle punishment doesn’t work at all on him.


Of course, this also means that when Jake and I happen to be near water, I can get some awesome photographs.


Living in Boston, we have occasion to see a lot of water. There’s Boston Harbor, Fort Point Channel, the Charles River and Massachusetts Bay, all within a mile and a half of our house.


There’s a reason the Standells’ song Dirty Water is Boston’s theme song, although the water’s a lot cleaner now than it was back in the mid 1960’s.


Jake and I went to Christopher Columbus Park a while back and just enjoyed a nice day outside looking out at the harbour.


I’m kind of glad I don’t know how polluted it all used to be. Now it all seems so nice, it’s hard to believe that within my lifetime, people were advised to get a tetanus shot if they so much as came in contact with the water, let alone went swimming in it!

  1. He does look quite at home in the aquatic or nautical environment. I am impressed with how clean-looking those black posts are. How do they keep the seagulls off everything? It’s obvious why Boston’s water got so dirty….they DID have a predisposition for dumping stuff in the water.


  2. Beautiful pictures Coco..I’m glad that the water has cleared up so much..can you imagine..a tetanus shot!
