Fallen Leaves & Fog

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 of unfinished wood. It was unkempt and unplanted.

We loved it.

Portrait Of Beacon Hill

For those of you who know the character, (characters?) of old line Beacon Hill. This matron peaking out suspiciously from her classic doorway says all you need to know.

Today is very rainy and miserable. I went out for a short walk just to stretch my legs. Since my faithful Ricoh GR isn’t weatherproof I wasn’t really able to carry it out in the open. I got this shot under an awning where this family of tourists was having a discussion of where to go next.

Addiction Pure And Simple

Digital Addiction….I feel it in myself and it’s beginning to really bother me.
Check out….”Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked” by Adam Alter. It’s quite scarey.

Going, Going, Gone…A Glimpse Of The Future

This photo was taken 15 seconds from the front door of the Harvard Coop Store, smack dab in the middle of Harvard Square, a place with some of the highest real estate values in the state. My point for this lengthy explanation is, often we fail to see clearly what is happening on our very doorstep. We are increasingly mesmerized by the digital world and are losing sight of the real one. Facebook, Amazon, Google, Apple and Twitter are eating our lunch and we are still only barely aware of the chaos to come. 

Going Up With Straight Lines And Angles

I’m finding more and more photographic opportunities in the most mundane places. I think what makes this one is the 28mm lens on my Ricoh GR that takes in all the angles of the escalator and elevator together with the lucky coincidence of having just one person perfectly positioned in the middle of the moving stairway.
