Gunshots? Rocks? Make A Big Mess

There’s a little convenience store a very short distance from where we live. Right across the street from the Massachusetts State House in fact. Coming back home today I passed this guy shoveling a whole bunch of shattered glass into buckets so he could cart it away.

See the holes in the widow above him? Hard to know what caused them but one things for sure, it wasn’t an accident.

I’m drawn towards taking photographs of older people. They have more striking faces than the plump, unlined ones of youth. Their eyes especially speak to the journey they’ve been on.

As I approached this lady she was deep in her book and sipping a lemonade. It wasn’t really a good picture so I went by her and headed towards Boylston Street. On a hunch I glanced back at her and bingo she was doing deep knee bends. Now that was worthy of a few pictures.

There’s an old adage in photography that one should always look behind yourself from time to time. This is a perfect example of that advice.

During the day a lot of people can be found on this stone bench. It’s a comfortable place to sit. However, the distressing thing is that those who find their way here are often pretty much down on their luck. This fellow though seems more lost in thought. Further down the way is the rougher crowd.
