Well, as long as you don't loudly proclaim any love for the Yankees, I think Boston'll let you stay around. :) I actually hated the Sox when I moved back here three years ago, because their games would screw up my commute royally, but when they were rallying to almost making it to the World Series in 2003, I couldn't help but get sucked in.

Ooh, cool catwomanish icon.

Well, I'm not entirely happy with this, but at least it's something.

I'm just indifferent to baseball. I root for the Sox as much as I root for any team, which is not much.

Thanks! I dig my cat icons.

LOL! Where exactly is that?

If you want a pop-culture-related image, this one is a possibility.

I got it from Getty Images; it's a stock photo, apparently down by the Harbor (I actually suspect in the North Station area of the Charles). So if it is the Harbor, it's the wrong 'dirty water', but hey!

I think I might just think on it and go out and take the photos I want/need myself; that's the best way to get 'my' Boston, after all.

Getty Images seems to own the entire photographic world.

What a cool idea--to use your own pics. Any landmarks you have in mind? Citgo sign or Harvard, perhaps? The Pru? Faneuil Hall?

Getty is awesome. I really admire their search system.

I might do Citgo sign, but I was thinking more of my own neighborhood (Brighton), though I haven't any ideas of how that might manifest itself in 100x100 form as yet. :)

Hmm, I dunno what Brighton's major landmarks are. The only thing I can think of is the B line.

There's Twin Donuts, but I think that's actually Allston.

I tried making B-line icons for a challenge grrliz issued, but the B-line is pathetically unphotogenic.

I will probbaly end up with something no one else recognizes as Boston except me, but hey.
