Waiting For A Fare

Closeup photos of people with high contrast between them and the background are hard to come by. With the snap focus of the Ricoh cameras they’re a little easier than with a conventional DSLR. (At least that’s my opinion.)

California Dreaming

We’re returning to Boston very soon. It’s time. The rain, my injury and other misfortunes have marred our trip somewhat. However what we will definitely miss is this laid back, anything goes “left coast” culture.

Dreaming Isn’t Always Easy

Pleading With A DJEMBE Thief

I couldn’t resist asking this man what a DJEMBE is. Apparently it’s a make of drum. He told me somebody stole it a couple of nights ago. That and his clothes too! He didn’t mind the clothes being gone but, he REALLY wanted his drum back.

I’m not sure how effective standing on the edge of a busy street holding a sign was going to be but I wished him luck. He seemed like a nice guy.

Back Alley

The last thing I expected to see, walking home just now, was this girl doing up her hair in the back of some really grungy industrial buildings.

Really Red!

This is a photograph of one thing and one thing only, the color red. While waiting for the light to allow us to cross, this young lady joined the group on the corner. She stood in such way that the strong sun brilliantly lit up her bright red hair. The image has no context, no real story to tell, just her hair. But in this case that’s probably enough.

Dapper Jug Man

It’s not often one sees a man dressed as well as this guy lugging a heavy 5 gallon jug of water down a long flight of stairs. His hat, his vest, his fancy sport coat, don’t seem to match what he’s doing. Of course that’s what makes this shot fun and I’m certainly not complaining.

One more thing before I let you go. You’ll notice that the wall in the background is the one you’ve seen in a number of my street shots. I love to hang around this area because it provides great color and texture to any photo taken against it.
