Seeing Is Believing

On a sunny weekend in the Faneuil Hall market there are obviously a TON of tourists milling around. However mixed into the run of the mill visitors from Dayton and De Moines there are a few folks that defy discription.

Here is one of them.

The Man With Magic Earrings

To me he looks right out of the hippy 60s. I think this look is probably passe by now but I really wouldn’t now. (Not really hip anymore…as if I ever was.) That said I like this portrait. He looks like a pretty nice guy.

A Convention of Straight Lines

The title says it all. Maybe one can find more straight lines in a prison but the Alington Street subway stop in Boston is certainly a major contender.   

Shooting Street Portraits

As it is Saturday today, there were plenty of folks wandering around the Boston Garden today providing me ample opportunity to take their pictures. Here are 2 that please me.

PS The guy above seems right out of the hippy era with his lightning earrings and long wavy hair.

A Slow Sweet Song

The time is just after 5 yesterday afternoon. It had been a long day with a lot of driving in heavy city traffic. I was waiting to cross Beacon Street after walking up from the Park Street subway station and was looking forward to getting home and putting my feet up. Just as the light turned I noticed this tree bathed in the soft light of the sinking sun. There was really no time to compose the picture since I was standing in the middle of the intersection. The photo gods smiled on this one.

The Gift Of Spring

The bright soft succulence of new growth brings promise to a harsh world that so often squanders this treasure. But I keep on hoping.

Looks Can Be Decieving

A monk you say? A man of kindness and compassion raising money for his monastery or maybe for poor people selling a Buddhist token as a kind of blessing.

Not on your life! This beatific looking gentleman is a common street hustler. These guys come out of winter hibernation as the spring and summer tourists start to fill our streets.

BEWARE!
