California Blue

This single sailboat was anchored in the middle of Drakes Bay near Point Reyes, California. I never saw anyone moving around on her. She looked rather lonely out there nestled in an almost mediterranean blue ocean, but the overall scene was beautiful.

The Misty Hills of Petaluma

A mist hovers lightly on the hills in the distance as we walk the 2 mile route around Shollenberger Park. We didn’t see too many birds today as we had started out rather late but, no matter, the hills’ soft muted colors made a beautiful backdrop to our stroll. 

Wine Guy

I don’t drink myself but I appreciate someone who knows a lot about wine and works at honing their taste. Come to think about it photography involves knowledge and honing one’s taste as well, doesn’t it? By the way the wine that my friend ordered that night at a very snooty restaurant in San Francisco was, according to him, terrible. You can’t win them…

Frog Pond At Its Best

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.

Worth Avenue…Perception vs Reality

I was concentrating on just taking a picture of these gals and I did get the shot. However, what really makes the picture…

Portrait Of A Curious Kudu

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.

Sunset On The Zambezi River

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!

Street Shooting In Cape Town

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)

A New Style In Homeless Shelters

I walked up close enough to see the man curled up under his golf umbrella trying to sleep. However I backed off before taking this picture so I could get a good shot of the church to give the image good contex.
