Music Please

I took this photograph almost by accident yesterday. It came about as I was walking across the little bridge in Boston’s public garden. The young lady was seated on its top edge intently involved with her music. I wasn’t intending to take her picture until I had almost passed by. At the last second I took one quick shot from the hip and got lucky. Color wasn’t necessary.

B&W vs Color…A Matter of Choice

The more I take photographs the more I’m drawn to the simple power of black and white. I think B&W removes the crutch that beautiful color can provide and leaves composition and tonality in charge. It pares down an image and often that seems to provide more emotional depth.

Dad? DAD!

Being a parent is never easy. Wondering what one could have done better is haunting. This photo brings back memories of what might have been.

Time Out

Sometimes taking a break from all the tension and anger of this moment in time is terribly necessary.

Looks Can Be Decieving

A monk you say? A man of kindness and compassion raising money for his monastery or maybe for poor people selling a Buddhist token as a kind of blessing.

Not on your life! This beatific looking gentleman is a common street hustler. These guys come out of winter hibernation as the spring and summer tourists start to fill our streets.

BEWARE!

 

At Boston’s MFA…Art Abounds

I shot this today at the MFA’s world famous Matisse exhibit. This little ked was having the time of his life. He was not necessarily a Matisse fan but he most certainly was an artist in his own right.

The Big Oak and The Storm

Nature’s power on display.

I love this old tree. It’s been around way longer than I’ve been on this planet. It sits in the middle of the lawn of my Grandparent’s place. They provided it a lot of space to show off and my goodness it certainly does.
