The Butterfly on Boylston Street

I’m really happy with this photograph; not for the subject matter, although it certainly is nice. No, I’m happy with it because of where I took it. It was on the second block of Boylston Street in Boston in an area of high end shops and a ton of foot traffic. This little butterfly was sipping nectar from a flower less than a yard…

Inevitable

We were in Maine on Memorial Day and I went to the Rockport cemetery to take some photographs as a remembrance of the trip. It was foggy that morning and after a lot of attempts at pictures of headstones and trees in the fog, I settled on this one which hardly has any gravesites in it but is a rather haunting of reminder of…

Grumpy Red

It felt good to be out street shooting today. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any of that kind of work. Sarah and I were heading out for a walk along the Charles River when she said softly to me “turn around”. We had just walked past this kid sitting gloomily in the corner of a Beacon Street building just before the…

Commercial Color Blast

These colorful things were for sale at a booth in the middle of Faneuil Hall marketplace in Boston. I have no idea what they are good for except to provide a splash of color wherever they are put. That said, they were certainly easy to photograph. I just stuck my camera in the middle of them and pulled the trigger.

A Convention of Straight Lines

The title says it all. Maybe one can find more straight lines in a prison but the Alington Street subway stop in Boston is certainly a major contender.   

A Slow Sweet Song

The time is just after 5 yesterday afternoon. It had been a long day with a lot of driving in heavy city traffic. I was waiting to cross Beacon Street after walking up from the Park Street subway station and was looking forward to getting home and putting my feet up. Just as the light turned I noticed this tree bathed in the soft…

Silver Fox…Maybe Later

There are so many stories out here on the street. Of course it is not for me to know what they are but I have a lot of fun making them up. I like shooting through restaurant windows. If I’m lucky I can catch an enigmatic couple like this one.

Boston March For Science…2017

One hell of a gathering!

Filthy Day Friday

I was street shooting in the Massachusetts town of Brookline this morning. It was one of those rainy, raw, and windy days when everybody was bundled up just trying to stay dry. Nobody had a camera out unless it had some kind of weatherproofing. Since I did have such an instrument, I was able to take a few photographs like the one above. The…

My 10,000 Steps Yesterday

Walking is good exercise. That’s pretty much a given. One’s daily wanderings can be enhanced greatly by carrying a camera. Here is my harvest from yesterday. I met this guy while I was watching a gathering of people celebrating something called “4/20”. You don’t know what “4/20” is? I certainly didn’t. My friend here said, “It’s a pot celebration day, man. Look how mellow…
