A Pretty Landscape For A Change

I feel I may be getting into a rut just photographing  people on the street. Here to break the trend, at least for a while, is a view over Boston’s Public Garden east towards the financial district…..enjoy!

It’s Ending…(sigh)

All summer Boston Common’s famous wading pool, The Frog Pond, has been filled with the happy sights and sounds of kids, and occasionally their parents, enjoying the warm weather and cool water. Now with school starting and  temperatures cooling, these easy days are dwindling. I’m not exactly sure how long the pond will stay open, but it won’t be much longer.

The pond will get drained soon and stay empty until the really cold weather sets in and then it opens again for skating season. The fun starts anew and the ages of the Frog Pond users become more diverse as many more adults avail themselves of this great resource.

PS I shot this photograph in monochrome as a way to mirror the season change.

Almost Full

The cool quiet of the city comes through my open window as the moon plays hide and seek through thin low hanging clouds. 

Japan in Maine

There’s a lovely little spot in Rockport, Maine called Beauchamp Point. I took this image from its edge with a long (400mm) lens looking almost due east. The little foot bridge and the foggy island just offshore I think gives this place an oriental feel, especially when finished off in very contrasty black and white.

Reflections Plus A Red Streetlight

The sun was shining brightly yesterday. As I came out of Boston’s financial and was walking towards Fort Point Channel the buildings behind me were reflected in the glass facades in front. This made for a wonderful shimmering cityscape with the red of the stoplight providing a nice dot of color contrast.

Claustrophobia Under The Red Line

During the weekdays this is a parking lot but on weekends they lock this space. It’s at these times that the heavy geometry of the scene shows itself. And if you’re the least bit concerned about being in tight spaces, the massive rusted steel girders supporting the subway line overhead will bring on a touch of claustrophobia.

Thanks To A Spring Snow Storm

Yesterday we got a little one and next week on Tuesday we get a much bigger one.

Snow storms make getting around a little difficult but they provide some fine picture taking opportunity.
