Message For Today

It seems like centuries have passed since anybody in Washington has made an intelligent decision. I’m totally fed up with the current “gotcha” style of politics. There is a huge global emergency right now! A humane intellect is not in charge.

Untitled on Purpose (A Rant)

I could easily to tack a glib title on this photograph. (How many riffs on the word trash can you come up with?) Actually this is a hard, cruel portrait of a sad, desperate man. The weather is very cold. He’s directly across the street from a glitzy Apple store and he has no money in his cup. The current administration in Washington creates these people. DAMN IT!!

Comfortable Coexistence

These 2 images were shot within 20 feet of each other, in Harvard Square very near the subway entrance. Both men were friendly and outgoing. Each seemed to come from very different socio-economic backgrounds. Yet here they were, close to each other doing what they needed to do. One, most likely, didn’t know the other yet as humans they co-existed just fine.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the current Washington political leadership could foster this kind of atmosphere?

The Morning After

large-1000105.jpeg

Well, the midterm elections are over. It’s peculiar but I feel neither sadness or elation. The only thing I feel for sure is that the national rancor is more than likely to get worse.

But for now, the weather is lovely , the sun is bright, the weather soft and that’s a blessing.

Thinking About Judge Kavanaugh

I normally try to stay away from politics but lately the pain that seems to be tearing this country apart has got to me. This alone and angry lady sitting on a Back Bay stairway expresses my feelings very well.

Bridges

large-.jpg

Here in Boston, where the Charles River empties into the harbor, are these two bridges. I liked the juxtaposition of the angular old counterweighted one with the soaring grace of the much newer suspension span. 

Humans build bridges that are both physical and personal. The physical ones are easy to understand, they help us cross things. The personal bridges join humans together. They are hard to construct and, in this fractious day and age, even harder to maintain. 

Would that this were not so.
