“Teeny” At The Bookcase

My step granddaughter is named Martine but everyone calls her Teeny. This is the first “cute kid” photo I’ve posted in a long time, maybe ever, but I couldn’t resist it. I guarantee you I’ll draw the line on cat videos.

It felt good to be out street shooting today. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done any of that kind of work.

Sarah and I were heading out for a walk along the Charles River when she said softly to me “turn around”. We had just walked past this kid sitting gloomily in the corner of a Beacon Street building just before the corner of Charles. By himself it would have been a fun shot but adding his balloon to the mix made it something special.

A lesson learned from this photograph is that I never should forget that what’s behind me may be just as good, or in this case better, than what’s in front.
