Is That A Camera?

The beauty of a Ricoh GR for street photography is that you can take a picture and move on before your subject is really aware of what’s going on.

Strung Out…Big Time

It may be because it’s raining right now or I just watched a powerful video on the events of 9/11 that I’m posting this photo. Somehow this drug addict seems emblematic of the mental state of our President. Scrounging around for the next media high to fuel his insatiable ego, regardless of the suffering involved.

This poor guy and Donald Trump desperately need help. I pray they get it.

By A Quiet River

It’s time for a rest. A quiet break from the frantic acrimony that grips our nation. Maybe for a while we can just sit and watch the water flow slowly by. There is a natural world that needs our love. Let’s give some time to caring for it.

 

Shellshocked

Boston has the third oldest subway system in the world. It’s very old and VERY rickety. As you might guess it can often be a quite stressful experience. Looks like his gentleman, exiting the Copley station, just experienced it.  

Street Savy Face

Walking city streets as much as I do, helps me to see interesting faces more cleary. I passed this man on Charles Street early this morning. He was sitting quietly with his hands folded, in a very relaxed pose. However his eyes told a very different story.

There’s a lot that could be said about the symbolism of this photograph, but I’ll leave it to you.

What Happened?

My wife and I went out to breakfast yesterday and after it decided to take a leisurely walk around Boston Garden on our way home. It was a beautiful day, with warm sunshine and a light breeze. We were strolling along a shady path along the outer edge of the Beacon Street side of the park when we passed this man sitting very still and staring straight ahead.

I thought he looked like trouble and we walked by. In retrospect, thanks to the gentle concern voiced by my wife, maybe he had just been injured by a fall or something and we should have stopped and helped him.

It’s too late now but I feel conflicted about what I/we did.
