Grumpy Red

It felt good to be out street shooting today. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any of that kind of work.

Sarah and I were heading out for a walk along the Charles River when she said softly to me “turn around”. We had just walked past this kid sitting gloomily in the corner of a Beacon Street building just before the corner of Charles. By himself it would have been a fun shot but adding his balloon to the mix made it something special.

A lesson learned from this photograph is that I never should forget that what’s behind me may be just as good, or in this case better, than what’s in front.

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.
