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.
Going down Charles Street I came across a large bunch of tourists being led by a guide. One of them was this lady who I managed to photograph close up. To me she has a look of intelligent defiance. I like that a lot. I’d like to send her this portrait but odds are that’s the last time I’ll ever see her.
There’s a wall in Boston’s Museum of Fine Art that has shadows of people painted on the wall. If one is patient enough, it’s possible to juxtapose actual people going by these shadows in such a way as to create some nice compositions.
It’s not unusual to see street people sleeping in unusual places. However, this girl is pretty obviously not a member of that clan. Why she has chosen to nap on a too short granite block in the middle of a very active shopping area is beyond me. That said, she makes the anchor for a pretty good triangular image composition.
I have no idea what this plant is called but when illuminated by the low sun, its leaves burst into a green fire.
There’s no shortage of interesting faces in a crowded city and with my tiny Ricoh GR III I can often get a pretty good closeup portrait of them without attracting notice.
