The arrangement of the figures in this photograph is one of those lucky accidents that street photographers hope for.
She yanked a low hanging branch around her shoulder to give her shot the proper background. Not great for the tree but it must have really helped the final result. Plenty of reds to be sure.
Occasionally we get some pretty interesting stuff happening in our neighborhood. For instance yesterday there was a company of “Red Coats” camping out overnight on Boston Common to commemorate the British invasion of Boston. Not only that but we also had some sort of futuristic cyborg thing hanging around too.
Every now and then you take a photograph of something. You like it but, you have no idea what to call it. This is an example.
The sign on the umbrella coupled with this young black man with his head on his hands seems to send a contemporary message.
I really don’t know why this man is lying on the sidewalk in Boston’s Chinatown. I do know that there are a lot of people nearby who seem totally oblivious to his presence. Speaking for myself I’m getting more and more used to and uncaring about people like this and I don’t like it.

Boston has the third oldest subway system in the world. It’s very old and VERY rickety. As you might guess it can often be a quite stressful experience. Looks like his gentleman, exiting the Copley station, just experienced it.
Walking city streets as much as I do, helps me to see interesting faces more clearly. I passed this man on Charles Street early this morning. He was sitting quietly with his hands folded, in a very relaxed pose. However his eyes told a very different story.
