That brings us to yelling obscenities at and threatening violence to each other.
I could easily to tack a glib title on this photograph. (How many riffs on the word trash can you come up with?) Actually this is a hard, cruel portrait of a sad, desperate man. The weather is very cold. He’s directly across the street from a glitzy Apple store and he has no money in his cup. The current administration in Washington creates these people. DAMN IT!!
It’s obviously hard to say what exactly this man is thinking about. I didn’t talk to him. However, there is a hard anger in his face that’s hard to ignore.
The photograph was developed in black and white because I wanted to emphasize the bleak nature of this picture.
I normally try to stay away from politics but lately the pain that seems to be tearing this country apart has got to me. This alone and angry lady sitting on a Back Bay stairway expresses my feelings very well.
It was blowing like hell today in Boston. In fact the wind blew a tree down on the overhead wires that power some of our subway trains. That stopped all cars on the Riverside Line going back into Boston. I was on one of those cars. This lady was too. I like to think I took the delay a little better than she did.
