Coming Soon

I was on my way back from trying to take a decent photograph of a new Blue Bottle coffee bar that had just opened in the financial district here in Boston. The area where it was located had lots of angles and what I thought were good places for a wide angle composition but all the shots I took were pretty lousy. 

Coming back home through the Downtown Crossing area I spotted this guy hanging on to a lamp post. Bingo, everything clicked!

28mm Glory

Coply Square on a nice day presents a wonderful photograph opportunity. This shot was taken from the steps of the Boston Public Library looking across the square toward Trinity Church. A tight cluster of tourists had assembled to listen to their guide and presented a perfect foreground element.

As usual I had at the ready my trusty Ricoh GR with its fixed 28mm lens. All it took is one shot.

Gay Pride “Belles”

Boston holds a huge gay pride parade every year. It’s a celebration of sexual diversity and frankly, for a photographer, presents a gold mine of subjects. These “belles” were all seated in a row along one side of Boston’s main public library. It was unclear to me whether they intended to march or just enjoyed dressing up and being noticed. Either way their dresses were a rainbow of color presented an easy composition.

Portrait Of A Good Street Photographer

Street Shooter

He or she is a hunter with a killer instinct. Silent, moving as necessary, sometimes slow, sometimes not.  Restless eyes scanning, scanning.

Alone?

What does alone mean in todays hyper digital society? I’m not sure. However sitting on a storage crate, under a dingy underpass, staring intently at a very powerful little electonic device is as good a working definition as any.

It’s heard to completely understand the opioid crisis until you see it up close and personal.

Open (not really) A Study In Caution

I like the jittery shapes in this. They seem to set off nicely her calm appraising gaze.
