Hard Streets

Most of us take walking for granted. Then there are those brave souls who struggle with this seeming simple act.

Just Reading

Open A Book,
By Jane Baskwill

Open a book
And you will find
People and places of every kind;
Open a book
And you can be
Anything that you want to be;
Open a book
And you can share
Wondrous worlds you find in there;
Open a book
And I will too
You read to me
And I’ll read to you.

A Morning Nap

This photograph was made outside the Whole Foods Market on Cambridge Street in Boston. As I went in, this gentleman was finishing up a coffee and pastry. As I came out it would seem he needed a little shut eye before continuing on.

The Antique Dealer

We went to the Brimfield antique show this morning. As usual it was packed with booths selling all kinds of goods. The rotund man pictured above sold mostly antique rugs. He was a rather predatory, aggressive type who kept up a constant chatter with any person venturing near near his booth. At the moment I made this photograph he was resting, surveying the people going by for his next prey.

No Mercy

There are some folks on the street of this city that I’d prefer not tangling with. In situations like these my tiny Ricoh camera is very helpful.
