One of true joys of living where we do is our proximity to Boston’s legendary Frog Pond. In the beginning of the city’s history it was exactly that. A little pond where cattle that grazed on Boston Common could drink. Now it’s used as a wading pool in the summer and a skating rink in the winter. It’s a huge community asset. Last evening I…
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.
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.
We took a boat for a sunset cruise up and down the Zambezi river yesterday. To say it was memorable would be an understatement. Many different kinds of birds, hippos, crocodiles, water buffalo; you name it and it was there. The light when I took this shot was right out of the African Queen movie!
The location is definitely different but the technique is pretty much the same. This is a great country with SO much to see. Animals coming soon (I hope)
For those of you who are not familiar with the gentrified neighborhood of Boston’s Beacon Hill, think starchy Brahmins. Wasps with money and “sensible” clothes. Suffice it to say, this lady does not fit the profile. PS I LOVE her hat!

We went to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts today and I took a hell of a lot of photographs. In the end though, what came out of that trip is how terribly hard it is to really see anything clearly.
Once upon a time we rented a house in Petaluma, California. It was very modern with bleached wood, sharp angles and a lot of glass. A particularly nice thing about it was that it had a very funky backyard that was the complete opposite of the structure. There was a falling down shed a rickety fence a bench made out of a single slab…
