Fenway Park, Boston

You can't visit Boston without taking a trip to Fenway Park. Whether you take in a game or take advantage of one of their daily tours, Fenway Park is a must see when you're in Boston. I took one of their daily tours. They take you through the various parts of the stadium from the right field roof deck and the press box to the atop the Green Monster.

Out of all the landmarks in Boston, there’s probably none more popular. One thing is apparent, Bostonian’s love their Red Sox. Fenway Park opened on April 12, 1912, where on opening day the Red Sox beat a team by the name of the New York Highlanders, later known as the Yankees.

Fenway is an old time ballpark with a lot of history and character. You can see it in the old wooden grandstand seats, to the lone red seat in the right field bleachers, where Ted Williams plunked a sleeping fan in the head from 502 feet away, and as already mentioned the Green Monster.

This image below is one of my personal favourites; looking out from the Green Monster. I love the perspective of the wide angle lens, and the person near the second base position gives it some scale.
