Sarah On The Subway

Believe it or not this was taken at the Harvard subway stop around 8:30pm on the fourth of July. The lack of other figures is kind of spooky but by this time in the evening my guess is most people had already made their way to the banks of the Charles River in Boston to listen to the concert and watch the fireworks.

Simple Rose

Not much drama here but damn these things are beautiful!

Warm Day

We haven’t had many of these mild days and this man is taking full advantage of it. As a color picture I like the juxtaposition of the red, blue and greens. The photo almost has an impressionist feel to it.

Eating Surprise

There’s a diner on Charles Street that in warm weather often opens it’s front window. Since I walk by there a lot, often there is a photo opportunity at the table nearest the street. Most of the time I don’t disturb the customers. This time, no.

Careful Daddy There’s A Puddle

We were walking this morning in Sonoma County’s newest park, Tolay Lake. The area is stunning! It’s dedication yesterday was something of a formality, as the 3,400-acre park opened in October 2018 after its master plan was officially approved. It’s accessible via an entrance on Cannon Lane, off Lakeville Highway southeast of Petaluma. The park currently offers more than 11 miles of multi-use trails…

Really Red!

This is a photograph of one thing and one thing only, the color red. While waiting for the light to allow us to cross, this young lady joined the group on the corner. She stood in such way that the strong sun brilliantly lit up her bright red hair. The image has no context, no real story to tell, just her hair. But in…
