Winter’s Blast

Another winter has come
your head and hands go numb
looking forward to the frost and snow
nights spent near the fire watching the embers glow.

The Library Ghost

Boston’s main public library has a magnificent interior courtyard. I like to sit at one of the small tables that are dotted along the main walkway between the old building and the new modern entrance. By sitting quietly and hiding my camera in my lap, I can take photographs of the passersby.

This young man made a nice silhouette against the building’s walls. You can just see that his eyes are closed giving him a nice pensive look.

Skeletons on Parade

Halloween was yesterday and in our Beacon Hill neighborhood many of the houses competed with skeletons to be the spookiest. Above are just a very few examples.

Rainy Day Group

Umbrellas are a dime a dozen in rainy day photographs, but here we’ve got this great tree that makes all the difference.

Two Puffs, One Pink, One Blue

I took these photographs within 5 minutes of each other. Nothing really spectacular about either of them but when put together, the colors and the way these guys are facing make a nice combination.

The Pure Joy of Running

Yesterday I was lucky enough to grab this quick photograph of the young lad running along the edge of the lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden. (I had a Fuji 23mm f2 lens on my XT3 camera.)

It’s Coming!

One holiday that’s celebrated with a vengeance here on Beacon Hill is Halloween. It’s a little early I know but some buildings are already cranking up their decorations as per this doorway.

If you’re ever in this area on the actual Halloween day, do yourself a favor and drop by. Bring a camera. You’ll not regret it.
