I did another attempt tonight. I
found myself at the shopping center (you can see my car in the lower right corner of the
picture) for a second try. I had just parked my car behind
a hedge when just over the top I see the lights of a police cruiser slide
by, heading out of the shopping center and onto the main road; the cop
either ignored my presence or didn't see me, which suited me fine. I
grabbed the camera and tripod and started walking, only to see a security
van drive by, again either ignoring me or not seeing me.
Other than that, there was much less
traffic this time.
This time, setting the camera to night scenes, no flash, artificial lighting
and ASA 100 the
images came out much better.
It was only as I was walking back did I notice the “NO
TRESPASSING” signs leading into the shopping center and I had to
wonder, Am I really trespassing? Technically it might be, but I had
only used the area to park the car; I wasn't really hanging out in
the area and I did park very near the entrance.
Good thing I had just missed the cops.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
