Old Boston Goes Sunday Shopping

Dressed in floor length black, wearing a sensible hat and shoes, topped off by a long chain necklace, small cross and rings on both hands, this lady has walked down from Beacon Hill to shop for a bargain at a Boston retail institution.

(It was ever thus.)

Sharing

Sharing what? Probably a joint. Outside the Boston Public Library no less. The file started out in color but I much prefer this black an white edit.

Copley Place Sleeper

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.

Threat Of Rain

When faced with any adversity, in this case rain, The Boston, Beacon Hill matrons make the best of it and carry on.

A Little Risky But Worth It

There are times when getting too close to someone who knows I have a camera makes me a little nervous. That said, getting an almost painterly quality to a street shot makes the slight risk worthwhile.
