The Good…..The Bad…..The Ugly

New Leaders In Training

I’ve grown pretty disgusted with the leadership qualities of males. They (spoiler alert: we) seem hard wired for conflict and in general tend to listen badly. It’s way past time for the pendulum to swing in the the other direction.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Living in Boston as I do, it is not at all unusual to see folks who are having a difficult time getting by. I regularly tell myself that taking pictures of them is kind of unfair. And in a way it is.

Showing off other people’s misery can be thought of as cruel. But on the other hand, it’s a part of life that we, way too often, choose to ignore. In this vastly unequal economy that we now live in, not seeing other people’s plight is also cruel.

Tempus Fugit

One morning, without warning, you see an old person staring back at you in the mirror. It comes as a shock to realize that wrinkled face is yours.

A Misleading Concept

The older I get, the more I’m troubled by our concept of “self”. To me it tends to necessitate the need for an “other”. This puts these concepts in opposition to each other and that’s where all the trouble starts.

April Fools Day In Boston

Yes it’s now April and yes that’s a lot of slushy wet snow coming down. I thought I was going to go for a walk and take a bunch photographs of miserable people trying to stay dry and not fall down, but the truth is I only managed to stay out for less than 15 minutes. Why? Look at this picture. It’s of an almost deserted Beacon Street with one, no doubt, soaked pedestrian crossing it. That shot, in a nutshell, sums up today.

Portrait of Addiction

There’s not much to say about this photograph. It’s a hard image. It’s about destruction and pain and a craving that tears at your soul.
