Looks Can Be Decieving

I took this close up photograph of a guy outside of Boston’s main public library. A minute before this he was passed out on the sidewalk. For a brief moment he opened his eyes, which was when I managed to get this shot. He painfully got to his feet. Stumbled into the library entrance and promptly passed out again on a soft stool near the front window.

Unusually Deserted Charles Street

This photograph feels really strange to me. It’s because the time is around 4 in the afternoon and for some unaccountable reason Charles Street is virtually deserted. I stood in the middle of the road for quite a long time taking it. It’s doubtful this scene will be repeated often.

Worry

The voyeur quality of street photography is well documented by this image. This lady was huddled in a doorways with her hands over her mouth. I’m pretty sure she was talking, or listening, on her cell phone. One can’t be sure of course but, whatever was happening seemed to cause her quite a bit of concern as evidenced but the lines in her face and the worried look in her eyes.

Love Close Up

The Ricoh GR III, that I take most of my street photography images with, has the potential of getting everything from one meter to infinity in instant focus. This is an example of that.

This couple was actually posing on the sidewalk next to a store widow for professional photographer with a pretty long zoom lens. As I passed close by with my little camera I was able to quickly snap off just this one shot. It turned out pretty well.

Talulah The Rescue Dog

It’s not often that one sees a rescue dog with an Instagram handle posing in the middle of a window of a fancy photo studio.( Maybe the previous sentence is an overstatement. Let’s change “It’s not often that one…” to “One never…”)

The Working Man

I got lucky with this shot. I had already passed this doorway when something made me turn around. This man had just appeared carrying a large can of construction debris. I had my camera ready and took a single exposure.
