Another winter has come
your head and hands go numb
looking forward to the frost and snow
nights spent near the fire watching the embers glow.
We were in Harvard Square this morning and as usual I was toting my little Ricoh along taking street shots. These two folks represent book ends of the seeming endless stream of humanity that was there. One looks very watchful, almost scared. The other doesn’t seem to have a care in the world.
Umbrellas are a dime a dozen in rainy day photographs, but here we’ve got this great tree that makes all the difference.
Going down Charles Street I came across a large bunch of tourists being led by a guide. One of them was this lady who I managed to photograph close up. To me she has a look of intelligent defiance. I like that a lot. I’d like to send her this portrait but odds are that’s the last time I’ll ever see her.
I took these photographs within 5 minutes of each other. Nothing really spectacular about either of them but when put together, the colors and the way these guys are facing make a nice combination.
It’s not unusual to see street people sleeping in unusual places. However, this girl is pretty obviously not a member of that clan. Why she has chosen to nap on a too short granite block in the middle of a very active shopping area is beyond me. That said, she makes the anchor for a pretty good triangular image composition.
