The Morning After

Well, the midterm elections are over. It’s peculiar but I feel neither sadness or elation. The only thing I feel for sure is that the national rancor is more than likely to get worse. But for now, the weather is lovely , the sun is bright, the weather soft and that’s a blessing.

The Memory Project

This is an art project of the Boston University student on the left. It was set up smack dab in the middle of Boston Common today. Nothing was around it, just two young ladies standing and smiling asking passersby to swap their memories with those of other people. I like the concept. I wonder, if such a thing was  actually possible, whether anyone would take them…

An Island of Calm

The Park Street Church’s steeple from our window seems like a beacon of light attached to an island of calm. While I’m not a church goer myself I think in these troubled times, this nation desperately needs healing and organized religion has a real role to play.

Soft Focus Boston Common Scene

It’s the day of the Red Sox victory parade and I took a lot of pictures of, as it turns out, a lot of things not directly related to the celebration. This one is of a crowd milling around on Boston Common after the parade had finished. The soft light and the out of focus nature of the image, to me makes it feel…

Closing Time (It’s lonely out there.)

The loneliness is palpable.

Trance Lady

This is just a snippet of a much larger file showing a Beacon Hill matron walking down Charles Street. The bigger image isn’t all that bad but her face is where most of the interest is so I just cut the rest away. The street shooting purists will frown at this approach but I believe cropping isn’t a mortal sin if the result is worth…

Thinking About Judge Kavanaugh

I normally try to stay away from politics but lately the pain that seems to be tearing this country apart has got to me. This alone and angry lady sitting on a Back Bay stairway expresses my feelings very well.

Male/Female Confrontation Issue

Please excuse my putting a political cast on this photograph, but when I saw these two people arguing I couldn’t help but think of the awful times the country is currently going through.

Valet (A Personal Editorial)

The sign on the umbrella coupled with this young black man with his head on his hands seems to send a contemporary message.

Is That A Camera?

The beauty of a Ricoh GR for street photography is that you can take a picture and move on before your subject is really aware of what’s going on.
