Surreal

This photo was taken through a plate glass store window of a new shop that is opening on Charles Street in Boston’s Back Bay. The glass and some editing in Nik’s Color Effects Pro 4 created this look. There was on adding of other images to create this effect.To me the result looks almost like a mosaic.

In Another World…The Reader

My wife loves reading. She devours books. This man looks to be a fellow traveler. I developed this photograph both in color and black and white. I couldn’t decide which I liked the best so here are both,

Sometimes one’s home life presents colorful photographic opportunities. This was supper 2 nights ago. I couldn’t resist.

With all the terrible news these days, I thought I would just post a happy picture of a bunch of people cooling off in Boston’s Frog Pond. 

Gay Pride “Belles”

Boston holds a huge gay pride parade every year. It’s a celebration of sexual diversity and frankly, for a photographer, presents a gold mine of subjects. These “belles” were all seated in a row along one side of Boston’s main public library. It was unclear to me whether they intended to march or just enjoyed dressing up and being noticed. Either way their dresses were a rainbow of color presented an easy composition.

Under The Trestle

There’s an old railroad trestle that runs along the river here in Petaluma. For the most part its underpinnings are inaccessible to camera toting folks. However, there’s one spot where one can see underneath it and yesterday the midday sun lit up this mass of rocks and rotting pilings. I like this jumble composition and wondered whether it would look better in black and white but when I tried it, I really missed the blue.
