    You fooled me! or, to be more precise, my own experience led to my being fooled. One of my favorite birds here is the Black-necked Stilt, so when I saw your title, I thought of the bird. This is just as pleasant, despite being quite different.

      I’m sorry. I really didn’t want to do this to you. I realize that this is not a very good excuse, but very often I have problems with the titles of my photos. On the one hand, I don’t want to use the same name for different images, and on the other hand, sometimes I can’t choose the exact name for an image. Perhaps this was the same case.

        Oh, no — there’s nothing wrong with your title! It was just an example of the interesting way that words can evoke one image, while the real image is quite different. I enjoy it when that happens. I not only have the pleasure of the photo, I have the pleasure of the memory, too.

      Thank you very much, Dolly. I’ve seen a lot of these shots from different photographers and I’ve always wanted to take a photo like this too. But so far I haven’t been able to find a suitable place. And finally, quite unexpectedly, I found it.

        The search process is very interesting and allows me to learn something new, to see what was nearby, but never saw.

      Thanks a lot, Elvira. Sunset produces very amazing colors most of the time and I am very interested in finding something to photograph during this time. I am happy when I can do it.

      Many thanks. This is a very interesting question. But, unfortunately, I don’t have an answer to it. East Boston was not a major tourist attraction in Boston until recently, and there is little literature about it either. But I can assume that it used to be a boat pier, because there is a new one, more solid made of concrete and metal, very close by.
