Descending Streetlight Trail

As one walks across the middle of Boston Common towards the Garden, a lovely row of streetlights marks the path down the hill towards Back Bay. A quiet diagonal leading to the cacophony of approaching buildings.

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.

A Pretty Landscape For A Change

I feel I may be getting into a rut just photographing ┬ápeople on the street. Here to break the trend, at least for a while, is a view over Boston’s Public Garden east towards the financial district…..enjoy!

As it is Saturday today, there were plenty of folks wandering around the Boston Garden today providing me ample opportunity to take their pictures. Here are 2 that please me.

PS The guy above seems right out of the hippy era with his lightning earrings and long wavy hair.

Rainy Day Boston

There is one benefit to being out with a camera in the rain, nobody really notices you. They’re too busy trying to stay dry.

Fire In The Sky

I took this photograph today (February 18th) as a beautiful snarling red sky hung of Boston Garden. I currently don’t take many landscape photographs but it was easy to make this exception.

Golden Tree and Thin Blue Ice

It’s finally getting colder here. Winter weather has been a long time coming, but now with overnight lows getting into the thirties, the cold seeps into my bones as a walk across Boston Garden. That discomfort is however more than offset by the golden sheen of the huge willow trees that ring the lagoon and the shimmering blue of its new skim of ice.
