Bogota + Boston
One of the most amazing aspects of the Unsplash community is its vast global presence. Our members are not only generous contributors sharing for the collective cause, but are also super cool people who are eager to get out and meet each other. It's hard not to smile when we see groups of people, cameras in hand, meeting new friends and exploring their home cities, brought together by the common love of the Unsplash mission.
We caught up with two photo-walking cohorts to see what they were up to—one in warm and sunny Bogota, and one in frigid and snowy Boston.
Our friend Dan Gold, a long time Unsplash supporter and contributor, has been traveling the world with Remote Year. Being the multi-tasking master that he is, he generously offered to host a few photo walks in the different cities he was visiting along his travels in South America. We said yes!
The first on his list was Bogota.
Dan and his troop explored the streets of Santa Fe, capturing some incredible street art and then headed up Carerra 7 where street performers and meandering alleys made for great documentary-style shots. The group then meandered through the Plaze de Bolivar until they were ready to make their way to the final destination—the top of Monserrate. Can you believe that view? Dan managed to perfectly capture the sun painting the city below with awashed in light.
While Dan and his crew were wandering warm and colorful Bogota, Alice rounded up a group for a slightly chillier adventure through the oldest streets of Beacon Hill, Boston. In this part of town, meandering alleyways and cobblestone streets are the norm: buildings date back to the 1700's, and there is a unique sense of American pride on display all year long. The few inches of snow that arrived the night before definitely made for a frostier, but oh-so-beautiful adventure.
