A photographic look back at 2009 on Beacon Hill

During the last year, many of you have contributed amazing photos to the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr. The photos you see here today were chosen from the nearly 700 photos that were taken and posted in the photo pool during 2009. Some were chosen because of their photographic beauty; others, because they captured newsworthy moments on the Hill. Some of these we’ve published before, and some we haven’t.

We would like to thank all of our wonderful Beacon Hill photographers for posting photos to the pool and their generosity in allowing us to share them with you. We hope you enjoy this look back at 2009. Happy New Year!

Rooftop hip hop from above Spoons

Caught wind of a free hip hop show on the roof of Spoons and the Golden Daisy at 15th & Beacon just before it stated. From 3 to 6 this afternoon, Dope Emporium and Black Stax hosted the show. The live acts started a bit late with Steelo and several more, but the DJ provided a funky mix that made for a good time outside (where, at least in the shade, it was cooler than hanging around in the house). There were some minor audio glitches for those watching from street-level, but nothing that seriously detracted from the show. Lucky for you, there’s another show set for the same location coming up on July 25th.

Some more photos after the jump.
