Trance Lady

This is just a snippet of a much larger file showing a Beacon Hill matron walking down Charles Street. The bigger image isn’t all that bad but her face is where most of the interest is so I just cut the rest away. The street shooting purists will frown at this approach but I believe cropping isn’t a mortal sin if the result is worth sacrificing the pixels.

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.

At The Matisse Exhibit

We’ve got a great one going on here in Boston. It’s huge but what makes it so damn interesting is that it includes many of the objects he lived with and used as “subjects” of his paintings. The man was a creative giant. His energy and intelligence were staggering. If you’re in this area by all means go see this one.

Only God Can Judge Me

This tattoo was on the arm of a nice waitress who waited on us at the California Pizza Kitchen today. Would that more people, especially in our federal government, would lay off judging for a while.

PS The lady was an immigrant.
