Doesn’t every city have these folks?

I wish I could post a more upbeat photograph to mark Earth Day but, the rain and gloom of today seems more appropriate. If those in power (I’m looking at you Trump.) don’t wake up soon to the disaster this planet is facing our grandchildren are facing a terrible future.

I love the quiet time before the city rouses itself. No horns, no sirens, only ths soft sounds of sleep slinking off.

Occasionally we get some pretty interesting stuff happening in our neighborhood. For instance yesterday there was a company of “Red Coats” camping out overnight on Boston Common to commemorate the British invasion of Boston.
Not only that but we also had some sort of futuristic cyborg thing hanging around too.

There are a number of people around Boston Common who feed the pigeons like this. Wads of breadcrumbs and popcorn are used to attract large gatherings of these birds who often land on their benefactor’s shoulders and arms to get closer to their handout.
If you look closely you’ll see sparrows and even an occasional starling enjoying the meal as well. But it’s the pushy livia domestica that get the most. What you don’t see off stage to the right are a couple of squirrels who will serve as the clean up crew.

As I approached this lady she was deep in her book and sipping a lemonade. It wasn’t really a good picture so I went by her and headed towards Boylston Street. On a hunch I glanced back at her and bingo she was doing deep knee bends. Now that was worthy of a few pictures.
There’s an old adage in photography that one should always look behind yourself from time to time. This is a perfect example of that advice.

“Take my picture man! Art is everything”
He had a good point. So I did.
