2009 was a year of transition for me, I moved back to Boston after living in Washingtion, DC for 2.5 years. I took A LOT of photos when I was in DC, I was pretty much acting like a tourist everyday. I took this photo in the Tivoli North/Columbia Heights area in DC, which is was one of the "up-and-coming" neighborhoods in DC.
I selected this particular photo as one of my favorite shots throughout 2009, because I just love the colors on the row houses against the clear blue sky.
Here is the gallery of photos from others for Boston.com - Your Best of 2009.

Here are some of my photographs for my architectural photography presentation, I included some Boston skyline (day, dusk, night), Boston Public Library, Brooklyn building, and Medfield residential shots. http://www.flickr.com/photos/karmanlee/sets/72157622624672369/
I am really happy with the class at New England School of Photography (NESOP). I met a new group of creative photographers and instructor, learned about photography techniques and composition, and Photoshop!!!
But more importantly, it gave me reasons/excuses to explore Boston with a new set of eyes (like a tourist!) and take "amazing" photos.
I still have more to learn and hope to continue my photography track and share more photos with everyone.

I decided to include some residential architecture in the presentation and photographed this particular house that was recently renovated. It took a couple attempts to get the photos done due to the overcast weather!! I am happy I was able to get this shot in today's rain! Daylight Saving Time didn't help either. It got dark so early now, like around 4-5pm.
In my not-so-architectural terms: This house was built in 1930s with a second floor addition from 1960s. The current owners of the house hired Single Speed Design for the renovation. The renovation was mainly involved with completely rebuilt the second floor to a much more open and eco-friendly area. They also rebuilt the front main entrance to match the openness of the second floor. Now, this home looks modern and simple, and it is very open and bright inside and out.
For more detail about the architectural design, you can visit Single Speed Design's website.
This house was also recently featured in the October 2009 Boston Magazine - Fall Home Design 2009: Take Two.

Cheng & Tsui Joins The Fun at BCNC Street Fair
On September 26th, Cheng & Tsui was on hand for the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center's 24th Annual Oak Street Fair. Attendees were greeted with sunshine and a cool breeze at the corner of Oak Street and Shawmut Avenue for the yearly event. Over 1700 children and adults made the rounds between attractions that included games, art projects, cultural performances and community resources.
Cheng & Tsui ran a very popular Chinese-color bingo game for the kids while discussing our materials with their parents and interested passersby. We would like to thank the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, our fellow exhibitors, and everyone who stopped by to say hello for making the day such a success!
Learn more about the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center and the important work they do in the local Chinese-American community at their website.
