Mother’s Day Weather Boston…2019

If only we could have yesterday’s weather today. But so be it, the day is a happy one anyway.

Getting Very Wet

It’s not quite time to turn on the Frog Pond fountain in Boston Common but it should happen in a few more weeks. Since I just ordered a print of this photograph from WhiteWall I thought I might rush the season a bit and show it here.

Speaking of WhiteWall, if you don’t know about this company you should. It operates out of Germany and specializes in, among other things, borderless prints under acrylic. They do an absolutely fantastic job and the cost is really not that bad. Check them out. You’ll be glad that you did.

Rain…Harvard Square

It’s raining hard and normally I couldn’t use a camera in this weather. However, the Olympus EM1 II is water resistant and in bad weather taking close up shots of people is easier because they’re too busy trying to stay dry. 

On my way back to the subway, I came across this man/woman miserably huddled in a corner. I like the split screen nature of the resulting image.

Many wet folks slogging up Beacon Street (Beacon Hill) today.

Summer Fun (A Happy Picture}

With all the terrible news these days, I thought I would just post a happy picture of a bunch of people cooling off in Boston’s Frog Pond. 

Daddy Says

We’ve got a wading pool here in Boston called the Frog Pond. (My blog is named after it.) On a hot sunny weekend the place is packed with little people having a wonderful time. This little girl was splashing around happily with Daddy watching on from a distance. I took this photograph just as Daddy came over to her and said they needed to leave.

She was good about it but took a few more dunks before finally getting out and leaving her hat in the pool for daddy to retrieve.

Today is very rainy and miserable. I went out for a short walk just to stretch my legs. Since my faithful Ricoh GR isn’t weatherproof I wasn’t really able to carry it out in the open. I got this shot under an awning where this family of tourists was having a discussion of where to go next.
