  Every day this lady takes her dog friend to the ice cream truck on the corner of Arlington and Boylston Streets and buys it a small cup of vanilla. It’s their daily ritual. She always buys herself a cone.

Silver Fox…Maybe Later

There are so many stories out here on the street. Of course it is not for me to know what they are but I have a lot of fun making them up. I like shooting through restaurant windows. If I’m lucky I can catch an enigmatic couple like this one.

Long Haired Reader

Here’s one guy that you might be surprised to see in a library. On the street perhaps, or maybe in a homeless shelter, but in the main reading room of the Boston Public library? Probably not.
