The Memory Project

This is an art project of the Boston University student on the left. It was set up smack dab in the middle of Boston Common today. Nothing was around it, just two young ladies standing and smiling asking passersby to swap their memories with those of other people. I like the concept. I wonder, if such a thing was  actually possible, whether anyone would take them…

dia de los Muertos

I admit he’s left over from our Halloween but he seems perfectly able to do double duty.

Soft Focus Boston Common Scene

It’s the day of the Red Sox victory parade and I took a lot of pictures of, as it turns out, a lot of things not directly related to the celebration. This one is of a crowd milling around on Boston Common after the parade had finished. The soft light and the out of focus nature of the image, to me makes it feel…

When The Light Is Your Friend

I couldn’t believe how wonderfully the light bathed this guy’s face. It was almost as good as light in a portrait studio.

Meditation

This was not taken on the streets, nor is it an image that I usually,post, but the hands and the deep blacks made a deep impression on me.      

Closing Time (It’s lonely out there.)

The loneliness is palpable.

Coffee With Friends

Misty memory in a quiet place.

If Only

Had a good afternoon today. 

Valet (A Personal Editorial)

The sign on the umbrella coupled with this young black man with his head on his hands seems to send a contemporary message.
