It’s below freezing, the wind cuts like a knife and she is coming or going. It’s a good story either way.
The more I take photographs, the more the power of a black and white image appeals to me. That’s not to say every image looks better in monochrome but when the colors are dull and details lend themselves to having their contrast cranked up, the result can be pretty good.
Color is seductive but all too often it can obscure a weak composition.
Boston Common is a 50 acre park in the middle of the city’s downtown section. It’s the oldest park in the United States having its beginning in 1634. While it’s certainly old, it has kept up with the times very well. This view from the 5th floor of a building on Beacon Street is an example of its current look.
Every year after Thanksgiving and before Christmas the Common puts on its festive mantle of decorative lights and the Frog Pond wading pool becomes a skating rink. It’s a lovely transition!
Umbrellas are a dime a dozen in rainy day photographs, but here we’ve got this great tree that makes all the difference.
The wonderful thing about living in the city is you never know what you’ll come across when you peer around the next tree trunk. I think this may be a hobbit but I can’t be sure.
There is magic in this city as the sun begins to rise and the streets still sleep.
Every now and then we want nothing more than to be left alone.
