Boston Public Garden Fall Selfie

She yanked a low hanging branch around her shoulder to give her shot the proper background. Not great for the tree but it must have really helped the final result. Plenty of reds to be sure.

 

The Tree Ballet

There is no easy way to title this photograph. The figures in at are a total disconnect. On the right six women seem to be engaged in some sort of project while on the left a girl with a red shirt and sox swings wildly from a tree branch.

It doesn’t make any sense.

I love it!

The Big Red Up

I never saw what she was pointing at, but the wall and their postures were the real story. The picture is even somewhat out of focus but I don’t care. The color was too good to ignore.

Magic Mist #1

Sarah and I took an early morning walk today. We hoped that the time of day would make the bird viewing easier. It did just that, but for me there was another huge benefit. The morning fog hadn’t burned off yet and the landscape was shrouded in a light haze, turning familiar scenes into misty magic.

The Red Cup (Maybe A Keeper)

Sometimes the plainest of objects situated in just the right place can make nice subjects for photographs. This cup between two old painted columns is a case in point. I think it’s enough for a nice 16 x 9 formated composition.

PS The bright red against the grey doesn’t hurt either.

Having made just made a case for the worthiness of this picture, I could also argue that it’s just too plain. Time will tell. I don’t know about you but I have a tendency to judge my photographs too hastily and find that letting them “marinate” for a while before forming an opinion about them helps make a better decision about their quality. 

We’ll see which way this one goes.

Grumpy Red

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.

Corner of Beacon and Charles

Sometimes just being in the right place at the right time can result in a pretty good image. Such was the case today walking up Beacon Street on my way back home. The red of course is a big plus for this photograph and I plead guilty to goosing it up a tad in post processing.
