He seems bright and articulate. He’s been on this spot on Cambridge Street in Boston for 20 years. He commutes in from his studio apartment in the town of Malden every day. “I make my rent this way.”  

The Canine Gang

According to their walker, this particular group of dogs has been together for quite a few years. They were really well behaved, almost bored. Nice to see a pack so friendly. As for the guy, unlike so many dog walkers who are clearly doing it as an interim job, this man seemed very contented with his occupation. All in all a nice encounter.

Balloon Man On Ice

Normally this guy operates in the summer when there are more kids around. But I guess today’s warm weather was enough to bring him out of hibernation. Those kids you see where having a LOT of fun.

On Ice

This group of ice walkers are strolling around what we locals call the lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden. In warm weather this place would be filled with swan boats and ducks.

I really do like the final result though planned or not.

Cops and Cups

Sometimes the photo gods smile on street photographers. This picture was taken inside Boston’s upscale Prudential Plaza Mall when by accident I saw two mall policeman leaning against this cool wall. The one on the right wasn’t overly pleased about me taking this shot but they both just stoically stood there and I got a neat shot.

Subway Crucifix?

Maybe it’s because it’s almost Christmas?
