Resignation Outside A Hospital

R0361575-Edit-2small.jpg

I guess it’s because I’m an old guy that these images move me. This man was sitting yesterday on the edge of a wall outside the Tufts Medical Center. I think he looked resigned. A strange word resigned, but the older you get the more you have to deal with constant aches and pains and an overall reduction in strength. You sit more, you hurt more and in order to live with all this, one become resigned to feeling that way.

Getting back to the technical aspects of this image for a second. The raking light on his face gave him a lovely, almost old world, look. I think Rembrandt might have liked this face.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
