Not much needs to be said about these photographs. This is an annual event in Boston Common and it’s very moving. The thing I noticed about these people setting out the commemorative flags was that they were very subdued almost silent.  It was fitting for the occasion.

 

 

Commercial Color Blast

These colorful things were for sale at a booth in the middle of Faneuil Hall marketplace in Boston. I have no idea what they are good for except to provide a splash of color wherever they are put. That said, they were certainly easy to photograph. I just stuck my camera in the middle of them and pulled the trigger.

“Yes Dear”

Put whatever interpretation you like on this photograph. For me it has to with the compositional relation between the 2 figures, which, in real life, probably doesn’t even exist.  It’s a mind game.

The Break Dancing King

I marvel at the skill of these guys!

Not only was this guy an extremely skilled athlete but he was a nice guy to boot. Look at the photo below. This old lady came by and started to chat with him and he interrupted his performance to speak with her.

Seeing Is Believing

On a sunny weekend in the Faneuil Hall market there are obviously a TON of tourists milling around. However mixed into the run of the mill visitors from Dayton and De Moines there are a few folks that defy discription.

Here is one of them.

The Man With Magic Earrings

To me he looks right out of the hippy 60s. I think this look is probably passe by now but I really wouldn’t now. (Not really hip anymore…as if I ever was.) That said I like this portrait. He looks like a pretty nice guy.

A Convention of Straight Lines

The title says it all. Maybe one can find more straight lines in a prison but the Alington Street subway stop in Boston is certainly a major contender.
