Balloon Man On Ice


Normally this guy operates in the summer when there are more kids around. But I guess today’s warm weather was enough to bring him out of hibernation. Those kids you see where having a LOT of fun.

On Ice


This group of ice walkers are strolling around what we locals call the lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden. In warm weather this place would be filled with swan boats and ducks. Today the temperature reached almost 50 giving everybody a break from the frigid temperatures we’ve been having. It was VERY welcome.

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!

Shooting Street Portraits



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.
