It’s the hair! End of story.

The Offloading

Walking home up Boston Common after buying the Sunday paper (see the previous post) I came across these guys offloading a truck. There was a lot of discussion about what stuff went and what stayed and with a little judicious cropping I was able to bring their hands into the picture as a focal element. 

By the way the elapsed time between the earlier tourist picture and this one was less than 15 minutes. (The fickle gods of street shooting  smile occasionally.)

Tourist Town

They’re hard to miss. With guide book and cameras in hand they happily wander our brick sidewalks and potholed street looking at all the strange inhabitants. This group was right outside our font door as I was going down Beacon Street to get a paper at the Starbucks on the corner of Charles. Although they didn’t speak much (if any) english we exchanged happy smiles and went on our respective ways.

I don’t usually take portraits of mushrooms but, this one was too good to miss.

Earth Day Helpers

These creatures are supposed to be tree kangaroos. They were telling people in Boston’s Public Garden about how they were close to extinction. (The real animals are indeed severely threatened.) Nice to see Earth Day remembered so creatively. Now if only we humans can do better!

His mother nicely told him that the problem was he didn’t live there.

There’s not much that can be said about this except it breaks your heart.
