It’s Only Going To Get Worse

Lousy rainy day today, but by Thanksgiving the midday temperature will be in the teens!

Rainy Day Boston

Many wet folks slogging up Beacon Street (Beacon Hill) today.

A 7AM Meditation

Today’s early morning was a sodden soggy mess. The rain was pelting down so hard that even in bed with the windows closed tightly, the rain’s steady, strangely soothing hiss could easily be heard over the hum of the ceiling fan.

A lovely form of meditation could be achieved by just lying still and listening.

Rainy Day Couple

This was an easy picture to take. I saw this couple coming toward me from a long way off, happily tucked together under their large umbrella. Since I had plenty of time to set up my camera so all I had to do was wait until they passed me, swing behind them and take the shot. All it took was one.

A Rainy Day On Newberry Street

On a wet and dreary day, this old guy comes steaming down Boston’s Newberry Street looking neither left nor right. A creaky runaway train on an important mission.

Umbrella Chat

Today is very rainy and miserable. I went out for a short walk just to stretch my legs. Since my faithful Ricoh GR isn’t weatherproof I wasn’t really able to carry it out in the open. I got this shot under an awning where this family of tourists was having a discussion of where to go next.

Filthy Day Friday

I was street shooting in the Massachusetts town of Brookline this morning. It was one of those rainy, raw, and windy days when everybody was bundled up just trying to stay dry.

Nobody had a camera out unless it had some kind of weatherproofing. Since I did have such an instrument, I was able to take a few photographs like the one above. The only minor problem was the water drops on my lens. However, upon reflection, they probably add to the atmosphere of the shot.
