Credited, yes (though actually you're missing an underscore), but the only link is to postimg.cc.

You're copying and posting these images without permission. You should at least be linking directly to the post so that people can click through.

I apologize for assuming you did not have permission, though I still don't understand your aversion to linking directly to the image as this would benefit both the photographer and the members of this forum. I'll drop this now but I hope you reconsider.

Alewife area's recent development north of the Fitchburg line: the only contributors to any height diversity in this tightly packed monolith are the Soviet Rindge Towers on the right and a 1980's office building on the left. I don't get why the uniform height has happened.

It's uniform because they're all 5 over 1, right? That's the cheapest way to build generic new apartments....

Nice ^ Back in the 50's and 60's, the thinking would have been: this should all be torn down and replaced with superblocks. Thankfully, urban vitality of this pedestrian scale is now appreciated.

Very nice photo.
I wish Boston had more blocks that looked like that.
