Monochrome Monday #36: King's Rook


"Edifice Complex?"
Boston, MA - August 2005 (Click to embiggen)


I have no idea what this building is, I just remember it being in Boston. It may be on the campus of Tufts University, but I honestly don't remember for sure. Any Bostonians out there want to help a fella out with an ID?Violence UnSilenced

What an impressive building, made more impressive by your beautiful photograph. The b&w is perfection!

Is it possibly this restaurant? I'm not entirely sure, but that's the first thing that came to mind when I saw it.

Great mono capture, Mojo.

Beautiful indeed - a feast for both the eyes and the imagination!

(What can I say? At heart I'm still a young girl dreaming of castles and princesses and gorgeous medieval style gowns.)

I've got a feeling if I stare at it long enough I'll spot Rapunzel's long hair flowing out of the windows up there!
Nice shot in B&W definitely!

Well we were lost in Boston for some time but I can't answer that question. Cool building though!

I think you posted a wider view of the same building on The World in Black and White a few weeks ago:

I've never actually eaten inside either a castle or a Smith and Wollensky, but I believe they're a high end steakhouse with a few branches around the eastern USA. Steak in a castle in Boston sounds kinda strange.

This is just the coolest when I grow up I wanna be like U and take shots like this( I am being serious here now Mojo)!What ever this place is you made it stand out!

I believe Liz is right - the only castle I know in Boston now houses the Smith & Wollensky steakhouse. It is owned by the Park Plaza and can be used for large receptions and conferences. I have been there 2x and it is a pretty cool place smack in the middle of downtown. The ambiance is much better than the overpriced food though - Grill 23 is tastier for the bucks - but you don't get to experience the architecture. It used to be an armory and they have lots of cool artifacts.

This is all the more reason I must continue to harass my husband to take me to Boston! What a wonderful shot!
