Skeletons on Parade

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.

Fall Gold

Walking along the outer edge of the Boston Public Garden yesterday this was what I saw. Mind you this sidewalk is along Boylston Street, a VERY busy road. Sometimes the beauty of nature just grabs you by the throat!

Rainy Day Group

Umbrellas are a dime a dozen in rainy day photographs, but here we’ve got this great tree that makes all the difference.

Hijab Lady

Going down Charles Street I came across a large bunch of tourists being led by a guide. One of them was this lady who I managed to photograph close up. To me she has a look of intelligent defiance. I like that a lot. I’d like to send her this portrait but odds are that’s the last time I’ll ever see her.

Two Puffs, One Pink, One Blue

I took these photographs within 5 minutes of each other. Nothing really spectacular about either of them but when put together, the colors and the way these guys are facing make a nice combination.

The Pure Joy of Running

Yesterday I was lucky enough to grab this quick photograph of the young lad running along the edge of the lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden. (I had a Fuji 23mm f2 lens on my XT3 camera.)
