The Icarus Bird

It’s pretty unusual to be street shooting with a little camera like the Ricoh GR and come away with a picture like this. This bird was one of flock of pigeons that came barreling over me while I was walking through the Boston Public Garden. Silhouetted against the sun, it created a fine center point. The snap focus feature on the camera made it possible.

Back Bay Brahmin

It’s the black hand rail with its rusty thrust into the column, the dark mottled granite, the crack in the column’s base and the trash tucked in back of the ornate flower pot that tells this story.

The Lonely Hockey Player

Shooting goals by himself in an empty parking lot near Davis Square, Cambridge.

There is a story here. I don’t know it though. If I was a better photographer, I’d be able to give you more of a glimpse of it but as it stands now we’ll just have to make up our own.

 

 

 

“Yes Dear”

Put whatever interpretation you like on this photograph. For me it has to with the compositional relation between the 2 figures, which, in real life, probably doesn’t even exist.  It’s a mind game.

The Man With Magic Earrings

To me he looks right out of the hippy 60s. I think this look is probably passe by now but I really wouldn’t now. (Not really hip anymore…as if I ever was.) That said I like this portrait. He looks like a pretty nice guy.

A Convention of Straight Lines

The title says it all. Maybe one can find more straight lines in a prison but the Alington Street subway stop in Boston is certainly a major contender.   

Omoshiroi

I would find it hard to describe what I see here except to say that the hand carved curves, falling like fabric on the face of the tall bowl, stand in stark contrast to the perfectly symmetrical prissy circles of the wall covering.
