You did it, Boston. You survived another endless winter. Except it did end, finally, and now you can go outside without making sure you brought your Chapstick and cradling your phone to your bosom to preserve its battery life. Throw on a hoodie, maybe a light jacket, and check out some of these 200 events happening in April, possibly Boston’s greatest month of the year (that T.S. Eliot was full of crap).

Between all the events rescheduled from last weekend and lots of new stuff, you have plenty of options to get out and support local artists and businesses. They’ll be extra happy to see you, and you’ll be extra happy to be there, probably because it took four hours on the T, but you made it so have some fun and forget all the times you cursed out all of humanity in the past week.

Haven’t we all, from time to time, questioned ourselves whether this is a good picture? Even photographers frequently don’t know how to think about pictures. We tend to say “I like it” and then, when it comes to “why is it nice,” often it goes unanswered. If vision is the ultimate end to end tool, I can’t help but wonder if the way we see, or better yet look at the world, could be frankly very subjective. Having said that, we can not ignore one exception to the rule: Brian!
Brian learned photography in the auto-didactic manner and there isn’t a day that goes by without experimenting on new angles and places or improving the style and texture of a picture. His gallery offers dynamic views of the city, illuminated with lyrical sensitivity. Lucky enough to spend some time with Brian, we are going to unfold the way he shaped his IG account through this last year and discover the aspects that have made him Boston’s favorite “Iger.”
To start, when was your “initiation” to Instagram? Were you into photography before that?
Not really. I always thought it was weird that people obsessed over those little square photos on their phones. But then I started instagramming my walk to work last April, and now I am as obsessed as anyone.

It isn’t your average Sunday morning coffee date when you get the chance to spend it chatting with the Bostonian behind the Twitter handle we all look to for the latest on Boston happenings. I was lucky enough to sit down and chat with the @OnlyinBOS at Pavement Coffeehouse on Boylston to find out a little more about how the account works, the success behind the tweets, and how this person created this well known Boston persona all within the constraints of 140 characters.
Let’s kick things off by asking you about the local king of 140 characters, @BostonTweet. Have you met Tom? Are you trying to do something similar to him? If not, what makes your account different?
I have not formally met @BostonTweet, but we have been at the same events. (more…)

“Cold sunset on the Esplanade last night.” Posted to IG by @brianmcw.
As you already know, The Boston Calendar launched an Instagram (IG as we in the biz like to call it) account less than a month ago. We gained 332 followers and 75 posts in such a short amount of time! Before we delve into our own Instagrammers (IGers), let’s check out who we think you should be following. This is my biased list of the Top 10 Boston-Based Instagrams: (more…)
