Portrait Of A Majestic Lady

We’re in Botswana currently, (You probably guessed this would be a tough picture to take in Boston.) This leopard was my picture of the day for yesterday. It was a terrific thrill to see her.

The Lonely Traveler

This was taken in Grand Central Station a few years ago. It’s a different kind of photograph than I usually take. It is minimalist to the extreme and not in sharp focus to boot. The mood and the story are primary. I like it as much for what isn’t in the frame as for what is.

 

Having a Real Bad Day

It was blowing like hell today in Boston. In fact the wind blew a tree down on the overhead wires that power some of our subway trains. That stopped all cars on the Riverside Line going back into Boston. I was on one of those cars. This lady was too. I like to think I took the delay a little better than she did.

A Study In Contrast

I really like riding the subway with my camera in my lap because occasionally one can take a fine photograph of the person or persons sitting opposite you. This lady was totally glued to whatever she was seeing on her phone while her young son just couldn’t care less.

Contemplation At 35,ooo Feet

It’s dawn now and we’re about an hour and a half from London’s Heathrow Airport and we haven’t really slept at all. By leaning back in my seat a twisting around as far as I can, I take a picture of the first light of morning reflecting off our right wing’s engine. The air is smooth and the background rumble of our giant plane as it hurtles east is somehow soothing. Maybe it’s just because I’m so damn tired but right now, this very moment, I’m at peace.
