Now that our window air conditioner is gone, the new access gives me a great new angle on the city.
It was a gloomy, cool, rain spitting day and I was on my way to the Park Street subway station when I say this chalk drawing on one of its grubby walls. All of a sudden the sun came out.
I love to take photographs of people through windows. The reason is that often the reflections of the area the window looks out on creates a wonderful cacophony that gets added to the image. This is a good example of that. These folks are lined up in the window of a place called the Clover Food Lab. They look out at the entrance to Harvard Yard. The result I would contend is a dizzying dance of reality that hovers between the real and the abstract.
Boston’s main public library has a magnificent interior courtyard. I like to sit at one of the small tables that are dotted along the main walkway between the old building and the new modern entrance. By sitting quietly and hiding my camera in my lap, I can take photographs of the passersby.
This young man made a nice silhouette against the building’s walls. You can just see that his eyes are closed giving him a nice pensive look.
It was cold that day and he was hungry.
We were in Harvard Square this morning and as usual I was toting my little Ricoh along taking street shots. These two folks represent book ends of the seeming endless stream of humanity that was there. One looks very watchful, almost scared. The other doesn’t seem to have a care in the world.
Halloween was yesterday and in our Beacon Hill neighborhood many of the houses competed with skeletons to be the spookiest. Above are just a very few examples.
