It’s all in the eye of the beholder.

Mr. “Experimental Carousel”

This guy has been around our neighborhood before. Besides being totally confused about his sign, consider this, the temperature when I took this was 90 degrees and he’s dressed in layers of blankets!

Bottom line, I have no idea.

 

Tough Day (or weeks or years)

My wife asked me after seeing this photograph, why I don’t take more pictures of tourists. I think it’s because I have a hard time catching much emotion in them. Street people show wear and tear. Often we turn our eyes away from the downtrodden preferring not to see their pain.

Different City Same Look

We happen to be in London currently, getting ready to return to Boston tomorrow. The only camera I took on this trip was the Ricoh GR and it has performed like a champ. 

Since it’s such a great street shooter, it was in my hand walking down Picadilly Street. As is the case in any big urban area there were some (not a lot) street people looking pretty much like those in Boston.

This man was a cut above the norm. For one thing he had a fine ascetic head, reminiscent of some 16th century saint. Add to that the umbrella and his 2 oranges and you have a photograph I think is worth keeping.
