Street Shooting In Cape Town

The location is definitely different but the technique is pretty much the same. This is a great country with SO much to see. Animals coming soon (I hope)

A Rainy Day On Newberry Street

On a wet and dreary day, this old guy comes steaming down Boston’s Newberry Street looking neither left nor right. A creaky runaway train on an important mission.

Descending Streetlight Trail

As one walks across the middle of Boston Common towards the Garden, a lovely row of streetlights marks the path down the hill towards Back Bay. A quiet diagonal leading to the cacophony of approaching buildings.

Getting Things Done

A working guy, tools in his back pocket, pencil behind his ear, just a no nonsense guy getting things done. 

Not Your Average Beacon Hill Type

For those of you who are not familiar with the gentrified neighborhood of Boston’s Beacon Hill, think starchy Brahmins. Wasps with money and “sensible” clothes. Suffice it to say, this lady does not fit the profile.

PS I LOVE her hat!

Symphony Hall Boston

As is very obvious in this photograph, we arrived pretty early for the concert. Although they discourage picture taking in the hall, my tiny Ricoh GR can be used almost unnoticed and I took full advantage of that with this shot.

I take raw file pictures and when I processed this one in Lightroom the seats in the foreground took on a lovely blue patina that they didn’t really have. It must have been the lighting that caused that color shift and I liked it so much I left it in. Not realistic? Yes, but I’ll take all the lucky accidents I can get.

Bus Portraits

If you don’t have something to read on mass transportation, be it planes, buses or trains, it’s very easy to slip into a semi-comatose state where although you’re awake, there’s no light in your brain room. 

These folks yesterday on our 3 more than hour bus trip to North Adams exhibited that awake-but-not condition very well.
