Rain

To my mind black and white images love rain. Puddles and water drops making their lovely circles sing in the wet.

The Library Ghost

Boston’s main public library has a magnificent interior courtyard. I like to sit at one of the small tables that are dotted along the main walkway between the old building and the new modern entrance. By sitting quietly and hiding my camera in my lap, I can take photographs of the passersby.

This young man made a nice silhouette against the building’s walls. You can just see that his eyes are closed giving him a nice pensive look.

Hard Streets

Most of us take walking for granted. Then there are those brave souls who struggle with this seeming simple act.

A Walk In The Woods

Muir Woods to be exact. A lovely national park just north of San Francisco. The light among these giant redwoods varied constantly from harsh direct sun to a gloomy darkness, making the extreme contrast hard to handle. This couple in front of me just got kissed by the sun in a way that created a silhouetted look that I liked.

My 10,000 Steps Yesterday

Walking is good exercise. That’s pretty much a given. One’s daily wanderings can be enhanced greatly by carrying a camera. Here is my harvest from yesterday.

I met this guy while I was watching a gathering of people celebrating something called “4/20”. You don’t know what “4/20” is? I certainly didn’t. My friend here said, “It’s a pot celebration day, man. Look how mellow these folks are.” They certainly were.

We have a lot of asian tourists here in Boston. Unlike some cities in the far east our air is really pretty clean. However this lady was taking absolutely no chances.

Finally there was this somewhat overweight young dancer practicing her pirouettes in a small side street.

It was a pretty good haul. I don’t normally get this lucky.
