Here in Boston on every Memorial Day there is erected a powerful, heart wrenching tribute to the thousands of Massachusetts men and women who died in service to our country. It’s heard not to be deeply moved by this sight.
This morning there was what seemed like a thousand kids waiting outside our local movie theatre. As we drew nearer, the doors opened and they streamed inside. By the time we actually reached the building they were heading up the escalator to the movie. This photograph was shot through a window in the theatre.

We all have days like this occasionly. Lately, however, in the US it seems we’re having them more often.

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…
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.
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.)
We’re returning to Boston very soon. It’s time. The rain, my injury and other misfortunes have marred our trip somewhat. However what we will definitely miss is this laid back, anything goes “left coast” culture.
