Some Quiet Time


I am trying to spend a little time each day just paying attention to the silence.

Boston Street Discussion


These folks had a real problem with the guy who was managing the valet parking for Tufts Medical Center. I LOVE these Boston street scenes.

Sarah’s Flowers


Really not much to say here except I like these jubilant flowers juxtaposed with the simple blue vase in the background.


Out Or In


It’s been a while now since I’ve been here. Good to be back. Walking to our car in the early morning I passed a fence that I’d passed a hundred times before. This time though, almost on a whim, I took this photo of it, cropped it to a 16 x 10 format, made it black and white and added a tad of vignetting.

It always strikes me how easily the familiar turns different.

Different City Same Look


We happen to be in London currently, getting ready to return to Boston tomorrow. The only camera I took on this trip was the Ricoh GR and it has performed like a champ. 

Since it’s such a great street shooter, it was in my hand walking down Picadilly Street. As is the case in any big urban area there were some (not a lot) street people looking pretty much like those in Boston.

This man was a cut above the norm. For one thing he had a fine ascetic head, reminiscent of some 16th century saint. Add to that the umbrella and his 2 oranges and you have a photograph I think is worth keeping.


On A Canal In Amsterdam


I’ve been away from this space for a while on a trip to Europe with friends. We’re still travelling but I thought I’d post this photograph I took on a boat trip around Amsterdam’s famous canals. There is something magical about moving almost silently around a city on water. (Our boat was electric.)

The juxtaposition of the serenity of water with the jostling hustle of a big urban area just a few yards away was unsettling at first. However, after a while the two melded together and centuries of history settled on us like a warm wool blanket.



Occasionally in the street shooting biz you take a picture of a person who looks like they’re able and perfectly willing to take you head off. It really wasn’t the case with this lady as we almost bumped into each other as we were rounding the same corner and it was a surprise encounter. I’m not even sure she noticed my little camera, nevertheless I’m glad each of us kept on moving.
