Night Skating

I know I’ve told you numerous times that we live very near the Frog Pond which is located in the Boston Common. For a photographer, this area is a never ending source of material. This shot was taken just as the light was going from dusk to dark.

Feeling The Cold

When I made this photograph, it was 23 degrees, blowing pretty hard and the sun was setting. The lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden had frozen solid. For some reason this group of people had gathered at its edge to look at I know not what. I darkened the image considerably and converted it to black and white to try to give a sense of the weather.

Hope you like it.

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.

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.

After yesterday’s big snow storm it took the city a little while to dig itself out. But by this afternoon things in Boston were back to almost normal. This happy group of skaters were glad to get back on the ice.
