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.

Looks Like Fun

This couple was being photographed by a professional for what seemed like an impending marriage. The were having a lot of fun. The shoot was near Acorn Street in Boston’s Back Bay. It’s a favorite location for wedding photographers. I didn’t want to butt in but couldn’t resist taking this shot as I walked by.

Barista With A Grubby Beard

We recently checked out a hot new coffee spot that has just opened near us. The verdict is still out on the quality of their gustatory offerings but, to a person, their staff was terrific. They were caring, efficient and very friendly. Here’s a quick portrait I took of a happy, young barista as he took our first order. Because I was so focused…

This Hurting Land

Believe it or not, my wife Sarah and I have driven across America a total of 20 times. The trip, no matter route we choose, is always fascinating. Every night brings a new feeling with it. Different landscape, different accents, different cultures. This country is vast, strikingly beautiful and very diverse. Our leaders in Washington are probably at least vaguely familiar with the above….

Tourist Season!

  They’re thousands of these folks wandering around Boston, all looking at maps, paper or digital. They believe they are somewhat lost which is to say that they think they know roughly where they are but not exactly. We natives know, however, that being “somewhat” lost in Boston is akin to completely and totally lost anyplace else.

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…

Japan in Maine

There’s a lovely little spot in Rockport, Maine called Beauchamp Point. I took this image from its edge with a long (400mm) lens looking almost due east. The little foot bridge and the foggy island just offshore I think gives this place an oriental feel, especially when finished off in very contrasty black and white.

River, Sea and Sky

This is the Megunticook River in Maine as it empties into Camden Harbor. The harsh Maine light helped the colors a lot. So did the high water level of the river as it splashed high over the rocks.

A Corridor Abstract

We used to travel a lot. Digging through some of my old “road” pictures, I came upon this one. I’ve got no idea where I took this but clearly the shafts and splotches of light were of interest, as were the multiple doorways. The soft muted browns don’t hurt either.
