More Context Needed

Street photography composition is becoming different for me. A few months (years) ago I would have happily taken and saved all of the above pictures. After all these folks were all on the street today.

What’s changed is my desire to include more context in my photographs. The top and bottom images in this series are essentially close ups of individuals, which is all well and good however, the middle one adds more of the context surrounding the person and I like it better.

Rain rain and MORE RAIN

We have access to a widow overlooking Boston Common, a lovely 50 acre park. Smack dab in the middle of the city. The land is a fantastic asset and used daily by many many people. Not so the day before yesterday. That day, the rain NEVER stopped!

Summer rain is one thing, but February rain is something completely different. As this image, hopefully shows.

The first ending. And knowing it would end
I wanted another. Lover, summer,
pen with which to write it all down.
The first disappointment. Which is not
remembered but lives in the body.
And how familiar it became …Dimitrov

Art Critique or Not?

Currently there is a wonderful exhibit of Turner artwork at the Mystic Museum in Connecticut, USA. I was busily wandering around taking photographs of the show when I stumbled upon this lady leaning idly against a couch near the entrance. The juxtaposition of her yawn and the Turner information was too good to miss.
