The Memory Project

This is an art project of the Boston University student on the left. It was set up smack dab in the middle of Boston Common today. Nothing was around it, just two young ladies standing and smiling asking passersby to swap their memories with those of other people. I like the concept. I wonder, if such a thing was  actually possible, whether anyone would take them up on it or would we prefer to keep our own memories even if we didn’t like them.

Misty memory in a quiet place.

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

Is That A Camera?

The beauty of a Ricoh GR for street photography is that you can take a picture and move on before your subject is really aware of what’s going on.

Street Savy Face

Walking city streets as much as I do, helps me to see interesting faces more clearly. I passed this man on Charles Street early this morning. He was sitting quietly with his hands folded, in a very relaxed pose. However his eyes told a very different story.

Introducing Mr. Spare Change News!

This guy’s extraordinary. He’s been selling these papers on the street for 30 years. Today he told me he had attended a “goin home” celebration last night. What? A “goin home” celebration is when a born again member of his church dies and goes home to God.

It’s a lovely thought.
