Looks Can Be Decieving

I took this close up photograph of a guy outside of Boston’s main public library. A minute before this he was passed out on the sidewalk. For a brief moment he opened his eyes, which was when I managed to get this shot. He painfully got to his feet. Stumbled into the library entrance and promptly passed out again on a soft stool near the front window.

Rain rain and MORE RAIN

We have access to a widow overlooking Boston Common, a lovely 50 acre park. Smack dab in the middle of the city. The land is a fantastic asset and used daily by many many people. Not so the day before yesterday. That day, the rain NEVER stopped!

Summer rain is one thing, but February rain is something completely different. As this image, hopefully shows.

Waiting and Waiting Some More

This nice lady and her happy poodle posed for me looking longingly into a Starbucks door for the coffee that was due to come out soon. Normally I don’t ask permission of people to photograph them but, this fun composition wasn’t going to happen without their help.

Unusually Deserted Charles Street

This photograph feels really strange to me. It’s because the time is around 4 in the afternoon and for some unaccountable reason Charles Street is virtually deserted. I stood in the middle of the road for quite a long time taking it. It’s doubtful this scene will be repeated often.

Worry

The voyeur quality of street photography is well documented by this image. This lady was huddled in a doorways with her hands over her mouth. I’m pretty sure she was talking, or listening, on her cell phone. One can’t be sure of course but, whatever was happening seemed to cause her quite a bit of concern as evidenced but the lines in her face and the worried look in her eyes.
