Frog Pond At Its Best

One of true joys of living where we do is our proximity to Boston’s legendary Frog Pond. In the beginning of the city’s history it was exactly that. A little pond where cattle that grazed on Boston Common could drink. Now it’s used as a wading pool in the summer and a skating rink in the winter. It’s a huge community asset. Last evening I…

Coolidge Corner

I’d like to say the composition of this photograph was completely planned. It wasn’t. I knew the worried woman in the foreground would make a good subject but the train arriving along her right side and the man in red on her left just fell into place as I pushed the shutter. I really do like the final result though planned or not.

Worth Avenue…Perception vs Reality

I’m sure these luxury bedecked, gold plated, plastic surgery scarred ladies think they look just great…but The camera tells a different story.  This is one of those lucky street shots that gets improved by something in the picture I never saw. I was concentrating on just taking a picture of these gals and I did get the shot. However, what really makes the picture…

Otto’s Pizza Parlor

This ambivalent photo was taken as we were leaving Otto’s Pizza joint in Brookline. It’s a quick snapshot of a chatty lady in the booth next to us. The juxtaposition of her with the artwork on the wall in back of the booth makes no sense but that’s what was indeed there. She wasn’t  in pain, she wasn’t singing, she momentarily shut her eyes…

Cops and Cups

Sometimes the photo gods smile on street photographers. This picture was taken inside Boston’s upscale Prudential Plaza Mall when by accident I saw two mall policeman leaning against this cool wall. The one on the right wasn’t overly pleased about me taking this shot but they both just stoically stood there and I got a neat shot.

Cold?….Oh My Yes!

It’s not like Boston is experiencing any more cold than other places in the northeast. It’s just that somehow in a city the freezing weather seems to cut more deeply. Maybe the reason for this is we’re so near water that the dampness gives an extra bite to it.

Christmas Night

I don’t know about you, but for me, there are times when happy holidays can have a hollow sorrowful sound.

Subway Crucifix?

Maybe it’s because it’s almost Christmas? 

Street Shooting In Cape Town

The location is definitely different but the technique is pretty much the same. This is a great country with SO much to see. Animals coming soon (I hope)
