3:40pm Downtown Crossing, Boston

It’s just stopped raining as people begin to start their way home. While not quite rush hour yet, Winter Street is beginning to get crowded. I made a lot of photographs in this area today but decided to show only this one as it nicely shows the bustle of this time of day.

Skeletons on Parade

Halloween was yesterday and in our Beacon Hill neighborhood many of the houses competed with skeletons to be the spookiest. Above are just a very few examples.

Fall Gold

Walking along the outer edge of the Boston Public Garden yesterday this was what I saw. Mind you this sidewalk is along Boylston Street, a VERY busy road. Sometimes the beauty of nature just grabs you by the throat!

Gardner Museum Interior

The Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum is a must-see for all art lovers visiting Boston. Its history and the dashing woman who founded it is worthy of serious study. This low light photograph of one of its great rooms is my attempt to convey a 19th century feeling which would correspond with the century in which Mrs. Gardner’s building was started.

No Mercy

There are some folks on the street of this city that I’d prefer not tangling with. In situations like these my tiny Ricoh camera is very helpful.

One Man’s Morning

These steps belong to a church in Boston’s Chinatown. They are used often by the homeless in that area. Passing by this morning, this man was just getting up.
