Just over a week ago, I did a photowalk on the riverfront https://artbycarolcook.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/photowalk-5/
I went back today because we’ve gotten 5+ inches of rain in the last day or so, and more in places north of here, so there’s been a lot of area flooding. Where I could I tried to take close to the same(ish) photograph, I wasn’t able to get to the same places exactly ~ but I got close. The river is definitely out of its banks!
Set 1 ~ no longer postcard perfect:
You can see that I’m further away (about 50 feet or so) and that the river is up to the middle of the river walk fence.
Set 2 ~ amphitheatre seats:
Again, I’m further away and had to step up on a blockade to get the shot (shhh, don’t tell anyone about the blockade… the nice firemen asked me to not do it again anyway!)
One last shot, as I was encouraged to “please get away from the river” ~ again showing it about 50-75 feet into the river walk park (a few feet above flood stage):
The ducks seem to be enjoying it though.
The firemen did say they’d take care of the flag ~ flying at half mast in honor of the Boston Marathon victims ~ before the water got too high.
