Boston Public Library

Lost in thought or sad, take your pick. Our brief warm weather makes even short sleeves for a smoke break possible.

Coolidge Corner

I’d like to say the composition of this photograph was completely planned. It wasn’t. I knew the worried woman in the foreground would make a good subject but the train arriving along her right side and the man in red on her left just fell into place as I pushed the shutter. I really do like the final result though planned or not.

Worth Avenue…Perception vs Reality

I’m sure these luxury bedecked, gold plated, plastic surgery scarred ladies think they look just great…but The camera tells a different story.  This is one of those lucky street shots that gets improved by something in the picture I never saw. I was concentrating on just taking a picture of these gals and I did get the shot. However, what really makes the picture…

Otto’s Pizza Parlor

This ambivalent photo was taken as we were leaving Otto’s Pizza joint in Brookline. It’s a quick snapshot of a chatty lady in the booth next to us. The juxtaposition of her with the artwork on the wall in back of the booth makes no sense but that’s what was indeed there. She wasn’t  in pain, she wasn’t singing, she momentarily shut her eyes…

Subway Crucifix?

Maybe it’s because it’s almost Christmas? 

Portrait Of A Curious Kudu

We recently spent a terrific couple of weeks roaming around Botswana looking at wild animals. This photograph is the first of a series. I realize this is a huge departure from the Boston street photography I normally post, but please bear with me, you might enjoy what will follow.

Portrait Of A Majestic Lady

We’re in Botswana currently, (You probably guessed this would be a tough picture to take in Boston.) This leopard was my picture of the day for yesterday. It was a terrific thrill to see her.

A Rainy Day On Newberry Street

On a wet and dreary day, this old guy comes steaming down Boston’s Newberry Street looking neither left nor right. A creaky runaway train on an important mission.
