Join us on an evening photoshoot into Boston as we visit 2 iconic landmarks: The Constitution at the Charlestown Navy Yard and The Leonard P. Zakim Bridge in Bunker Hill.  

Tripods are recommended for this field trip.  If you don't have one, let the trip leader know as there may be club members with an extra one to loan you.  

We will plan to arrive in Charlestown shortly before sunset, in the hope of capturing the evening light.  We'll start at the Navy Yard, and then, time permitting, we will wander over to the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge.   Carpooling will be available from the Stop & Shop on Rte 139 in Pembroke.  If you are driving yourself, meet us at 6:00pm at the Charlestown Navy Yard visitor center.
