Boston’s Public Garden

Because we live so close, it is easy to take for granted the garden’s beauty. As today was cooling down, I wandered by and was struck hard by it once again. 

Earth Day Helpers

These creatures are supposed to be tree kangaroos. They were telling people in Boston’s Public Garden about how they were close to extinction. (The real animals are indeed severely threatened.) Nice to see Earth Day remembered so creatively. Now if only we humans can do better!

Let Me In

His mother nicely told him that the problem was he didn’t live there.

Subway Tableau

I’ve often found, when taking pictures in the subway, one of the best places to be is on the platform just outside an open car door right before it closes.  What’s going on here, stage left? Who knows, but the major figures are arranged as if they were in some sort of play.    

Heading Home…We’ll Miss This

We’ve been on the west coast for quite a while now and it’s time to go back to Boston. It snowed there yesterday. No matter. Albert Einstein said, “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” I believe it.

Grounded and Happily So

Taken in the town of Marshall, California. A nice seaside location with a hell of an oyster bar. (see below)

The California Esthetic

It’s sort of like pornography. Hard to describe but you know it when you see it.
