The harsh sunlight and his dark clothing contributed to my decision to make a silhouette out of this shot. It was a shoot from the hip grab shot. The shutter clicked at exactly the right time. For this kind of shooting I just set the camera to program and the ASA to 1600 and let the software do its magic.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
