Pictures Driving Vast Change

I took this in a public park, about 200 yards from where we live in Boston. It speaks to the political tension of our times. There was a big protest scheduled for later in the afternoon and these young folks were apparently checking out the area. Maybe it’s just me but, I can feel tension and potential violence in the image.

The media lately has been full of articles about how much videos and photographs have helped drive America’s move towards racial equality. What a wonderful use for our images!

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
