Dreaming

This young lady was photographed through a diner widow. Lost in thought with her book and a bottle of water, she seems totally unaware of her surroundings or the guy with a camera taking her picture.

Getting Very Wet

It’s not quite time to turn on the Frog Pond fountain in Boston Common but it should happen in a few more weeks. Since I just ordered a print of this photograph from WhiteWall I thought I might rush the season a bit and show it here. Speaking of WhiteWall, if you don’t know about this company you should. It operates out of Germany…

Tall Lean Strider

Walking around the Common today in forty degree weather, we come upon this athletic looking lady striding purposely along as if it’s seventy-five.

Spring In The Public Garden

It’s in the 40s today but Boston’s public garden couldn’t be more lovely.

Earth Day

I wish I could post a more upbeat photograph to mark Earth Day but, the rain and gloom of today seems more appropriate. If those in power (I’m looking at you Trump.) don’t wake up soon to the disaster this planet is facing our grandchildren are facing a terrible future.

Waiting For A Fare

Closeup photos of people with high contrast between them and the background are hard to come by. With the snap focus of the Ricoh cameras they’re a little easier than with a conventional DSLR. (At least that’s my opinion.)

Pleading With A DJEMBE Thief

I couldn’t resist asking this man what a DJEMBE is. Apparently it’s a make of drum. He told me somebody stole it a couple of nights ago. That and his clothes too! He didn’t mind the clothes being gone but, he REALLY wanted his drum back. I’m not sure how effective standing on the edge of a busy street holding a sign was going…

Back Alley

The last thing I expected to see, walking home just now, was this girl doing up her hair in the back of some really grungy industrial buildings.

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…

Dapper Jug Man

It’s not often one sees a man dressed as well as this guy lugging a heavy 5 gallon jug of water down a long flight of stairs. His hat, his vest, his fancy sport coat, don’t seem to match what he’s doing. Of course that’s what makes this shot fun and I’m certainly not complaining. One more thing before I let you go. You’ll…
