Old Boston Goes Sunday Shopping

Dressed in floor length black, wearing a sensible hat and shoes, topped off by a long chain necklace, small cross and rings on both hands, this lady has walked down from Beacon Hill to shop for a bargain at a Boston retail institution.

(It was ever thus.)

Sharing

Sharing what? Probably a joint. Outside the Boston Public Library no less. The file started out in color but I much prefer this black an white edit.

Threat Of Rain

When faced with any adversity, in this case rain, The Boston, Beacon Hill matrons make the best of it and carry on.

Landscape Mantra

Stripted to its basics, this is a photograph of weeping willows and other trees surrounding a calm body of water. There’s a mottled sky overhead and no people to be seen. My additional goal for this image, besides rendering the landscape well, was to create in the viewer a meditative state that arises from seeing this view. I am well aware that it’s a conceit to believe I can but just trying was well worth the effort.
