Sunday Morning Coming Down

I love the quiet time before the city rouses itself. No horns, no sirens, only ths soft sounds of sleep slinking off.

A Glimpse of 2019

This a picture of some wonderful woodlands in Helen Putnam park in Petaluma, California. They speak to me of the unknown and somewhat scary year we are about to face. I hope I’m wrong but I doubt it.

A Fun Fall At The Frog Pond

Not much to say about this except everybody on the ice today was having a VERY good time.

Portrait Of Bobby The Panhandler

Bobby’s begging spot is in the doorway of the Starbucks on the corner of Beacon and Charles Streets, Boston. He’s a quiet soft-spoken guy with what looks to me like a big drinkers nose. I like him better than the aggressive little firebrand Michael who used to claim that corner.

Rain…Harvard Square

It’s raining hard and normally I couldn’t use a camera in this weather. However, the Olympus EM1 II is water resistant and in bad weather taking close up shots of people is easier because they’re too busy trying to stay dry.  On my way back to the subway, I came across this man/woman miserably huddled in a corner. I like the split screen nature of the resulting image.

Dancing Medical Duo?

These two gentlemen were relaxing by the hospital’s main stairway. They looked like they were about to break into a song and dance routine.

Big Worry

The story of this image starts with a request by a friend to take a portrait of him. Not just any portrait but one for his obituary. It was not something I relished but how could I say no? The day of the session I took the requested photographs and was preparing to leave when I noticed his wife sitting against a plain grey…

Trinity Church

This was the scene in Copley Square at 8:00 last night.

Surreal

This photo was taken through a plate glass store window of a new shop that is opening on Charles Street in Boston’s Back Bay. The glass and some editing in Nik’s Color Effects Pro 4 created this look. There was on adding of other images to create this effect.To me the result looks almost like a mosaic.

FedEx Earlobe Delivery Guy

This  photo started out as a quick grab shot of a FedEx guy ringing a doorbell, trying to make a delivery. It was only later I saw his enormous stretched earlobe. Needless to say this provided some “snap” to an otherwise pretty normal photograph. As an additional point of inerest, you can see my shadow in the lower left of the image.
