Spring In The Public Garden

It’s in the 40s today but Boston’s public garden couldn’t be more lovely.

Misty Morning

Our place here on Beacon Hill is near the top, which means to go almost anywhere we’ve got to walk downhill to get there. The usual route is down Beacon Street to Charles Street. The buildings along here are well kept up and often have nice plantings fronting them.

This morning’s trek to the grocery store looked like this. Though it was raining gently the mist-soaked trees and flowers made the trip most enjoyable.

Earth Day

I wish I could post a more upbeat photograph to mark Earth Day but, the rain and gloom of today seems more appropriate. If those in power (I’m looking at you Trump.) don’t wake up soon to the disaster this planet is facing our grandchildren are facing a terrible future.

Waiting For A Fare

Closeup photos of people with high contrast between them and the background are hard to come by. With the snap focus of the Ricoh cameras they’re a little easier than with a conventional DSLR. (At least that’s my opinion.)

California Dreaming

We’re returning to Boston very soon. It’s time. The rain, my injury and other misfortunes have marred our trip somewhat. However what we will definitely miss is this laid back, anything goes “left coast” culture.

Dreaming Isn’t Always Easy

Pleading With A DJEMBE Thief

I couldn’t resist asking this man what a DJEMBE is. Apparently it’s a make of drum. He told me somebody stole it a couple of nights ago. That and his clothes too! He didn’t mind the clothes being gone but, he REALLY wanted his drum back.

I’m not sure how effective standing on the edge of a busy street holding a sign was going to be but I wished him luck. He seemed like a nice guy.
