Fire!

You never know what might happen in an otherwise drizzly, boring day. Today, while I was running errands on Charles Street a swarm of big fire trucks came roaring up to a “Figs”, a pizza joint, apparently thinking it was on fire. It wasn’t, but I got a good photograph of one of the firemen pointing at something on the roof.

Big Worry

The story of this image starts with a request by a friend to take a portrait of him. Not just any portrait but one for his obituary. It was not something I relished but how could I say no?

The day of the session I took the requested photographs and was preparing to leave when I noticed his wife sitting against a plain grey wall in their sitting room. Her face was a study in worry.

I only took one picture of her. This is it.
