The Library Ghost

Boston’s main public library has a magnificent interior courtyard. I like to sit at one of the small tables that are dotted along the main walkway between the old building and the new modern entrance. By sitting quietly and hiding my camera in my lap, I can take photographs of the passersby.

This young man made a nice silhouette against the building’s walls. You can just see that his eyes are closed giving him a nice pensive look.

Walking With Memories

There’s a wall in Boston’s Museum of Fine Art that has shadows of people painted on the wall. If one is patient enough, it’s possible to juxtapose actual people going by these shadows in such a way as to create some nice compositions.
