Subway Stop

To be honest, taking this kind of photograph gets more troubling with the passage of time. I see too many of these people, many of them young like this man. I don’t know if this is a drug overdose but I do know, passed out like this in a subway station isn’t a sign of a healthy person.

Depression

It’s all in the hands and eyes.

90 Degrees

It’s very hot today. The brutal temperature probably influenced the way she looks.

At The Movies

This one was made at the Kendall Square theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’m on the mezzanine level looking down towards the main lobby. I liked the way the grid of the building’s facade and the angles of the staircase encompass the figures.

Black & White vs Color

The simple act of looking at something can be amazingly complex. As photographers we look all the time but often we see something entirely different from those who view are work. This photograph started out in color. The column was red and the boys shirts were different colors. I felt that version took away from the fixed gazes of the two subjects, but the juxtaposition of the tones and hues were interesting. Though I chose to eliminate the color, I’m sure that others would have preferred it.

The Antique Dealer

We went to the Brimfield antique show this morning. As usual it was packed with booths selling all kinds of goods. The rotund man pictured above sold mostly antique rugs. He was a rather predatory, aggressive type who kept up a constant chatter with any person venturing near near his booth. At the moment I made this photograph he was resting, surveying the people going by for his next prey.

No Mercy

There are some folks on the street of this city that I’d prefer not tangling with. In situations like these my tiny Ricoh camera is very helpful.
