Gunshots? Rocks? Make A Big Mess

There’s a little convenience store a very short distance from where we live. Right across the street from the Massachusetts State House in fact. Coming back home today I passed this guy shoveling a whole bunch of shattered glass into buckets so he could cart it away. See the holes in the widow above him? Hard to know what caused them but one things…

Summer Fun (A Happy Picture}

With all the terrible news these days, I thought I would just post a happy picture of a bunch of people cooling off in Boston’s Frog Pond. 

Snack, Exercise and Reading

As I approached this lady she was deep in her book and sipping a lemonade. It wasn’t really a good picture so I went by her and headed towards Boylston Street. On a hunch I glanced back at her and bingo she was doing deep knee bends. Now that was worthy of a few pictures. There’s an old adage in photography that one should…

On The Stone Edge Of The Library

During the day a lot of people can be found on this stone bench. It’s a comfortable place to sit. However, the distressing thing is that those who find their way here are often pretty much down on their luck. This fellow though seems more lost in thought. Further down the way is the rougher crowd.

Which Way To Go?

It’s all in the yellow lines!

The Very Big Sneeze

I saw this coming about ten steps away. When the photo finally got taken the sneeze had just happened and he was taking his tee-shirt away from his nose. I would have liked to have been able to take this shot a second or so earlier but I wasn’t close enough. I’m categorizing this as a “good but could have been better”.

Impulse Beauty

It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

92 In The Shade

It is brutally hot today. Over 90 and muggy enough to bring the strong to their knees. As we are in a city there are always plenty of street vendors around wanting to sell heat relief of one sort or the other but frankly nothing really helps. Today you sweat sitting in the shade.

Mr. “Experimental Carousel”

This guy has been around our neighborhood before. Besides being totally confused about his sign, consider this, the temperature when I took this was 90 degrees and he’s dressed in layers of blankets! Bottom line, I have no idea.
