Goodbye Old Friend

I initially was attracted by the harsh side lighting illuminating the guy sitting on the bench. However as I got closer and started taking  pictures, the other figure walking away was also caught in my composition. As luck would have it, their blue clothes seemed to tie the two together and so not only did I not crop out the receding figure, it become…

On The Church Steps

Her face is open to all kinds of interpretations; watchful, resigned, care worn or angry. Take your pick. All of the above or none. That’s the fascinating thing with street photography. The only sure thing is that the light falling on her gives a painterly quality to the image.

The Fashion Street Guy

I was chatting with this panhandler after I took his photograph when I noticed that the guy was decked out in a Ralph Lauren shirt! In fact aside from his huge beard, the guy looked pretty well off. Who knows? It takes all kinds to fill up a city.  

Sparrow CPR

This little bird had just crashed into a glass door. As the stunned (and maybe dying) feathered creature lay on the sidewalk, a nice man took out his handkerchief and tried giving it CPR…..Little acts of kindness make my day!

Portrait Of Beacon Hill

For those of you who know the character, (characters?) of old line Beacon Hill. This matron peaking out suspiciously from her classic doorway says all you need to know.

Hub Week Coming Soon

It starts tomorrow. STAY TUNED!

Going Up With Straight Lines And Angles

I’m finding more and more photographic opportunities in the most mundane places. I think what makes this one is the 28mm lens on my Ricoh GR that takes in all the angles of the escalator and elevator together with the lucky coincidence of having just one person perfectly positioned in the middle of the moving stairway.

The Matriarch

“A woman who rules or dominates a family, group, or state; specifically: a mother who is head and ruler of her family and descendants.”…Mirriam-Webster Looks like one to me.

Looks Like Fun

This couple was being photographed by a professional for what seemed like an impending marriage. The were having a lot of fun. The shoot was near Acorn Street in Boston’s Back Bay. It’s a favorite location for wedding photographers. I didn’t want to butt in but couldn’t resist taking this shot as I walked by.

First Look

Don’t you wish we still had that sense of wonder and anticipation.
