Buy Our CD!

Boston, Massachusetts
As you might expect Independence Day is a big deal here in Boston.
(Think: Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party, etc.)
We have tons of reenactments happening all over town, plus people dressed like Ben Franklin and Paul Revere wandering about answering lots of touristy type questions.
The above photo was taken after being catapulted back to 1776 by a fife and drum corp...
and then shocked back into reality when they finished performing and their manager grabbed a microphone and started peddling their CDs.

Good Morning Bonita

Cochituate, Massachusetts
How lucky I am to have subject matter to shoot, even on a rainy Sunday morning.
All I have to do is wake up and open my eyes.

What A Load of Garbage!

Framingham, Massachusetts
I stood on this railroad bridge while dozens of open railroad cars of garbage slowly rolled to the west underneath me. Where was it all going? Are we the only family that recycles around here?

I was shooting between the wires of a tall chain link fence- clearly put there to curb my urge to do a perfect arching swan dive off the bridge into the garbage....but also annoying because I couldn't get any close up shots.

I saw some interesting items pass below me in those cars- including a mostly deflated soccer ball next to a lamp shade. Had to be trash from some wild World Cup party.

First Day Of Summer

Cochituate, Massachusetts
And I thought we lived close to Starbucks! Mr. Extraspecialbitter and I literally have a Starbucks in our back yard. He never goes there but I occasionally embrace the overpriced caffeinated beverage lifestyle and today enjoyed an iced tea (venti-black-unsweetened-vanilla-shot for those of you who speak Starbucks esperanto) while hanging out on their patio with the house sparrow.

Got Sheep?

Natick, Massachusetts
Another border collie looking for sheep in all the wrong places.
This time in the parking lot of the local suburban mega-supermarket.
I think the loose carriages all over the parking lot were really calling out to him to be herded neatly back together.

Happy Father's Day

Along the Freedom Trail- Boston, Massachusetts
Boston Mayor James Michael Curley had 9 children.
Clearly he has another admirer as well.

Medfield, Massachusetts
This pit bull pup snoozes in the sun as the dog rescue festival winds down to a close.
(If you look closely at his collar you can tell he must be dreaming of the next Red Sox win!)

Don't Try This At Home

Where the ocean, desert and margaritas all meet.

Bold Sparrows

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The sparrows were bolder than the iguanas.
But not as bold as the time share salespeople.

Breakfast With Iggy

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We met each morning at the outdoor all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet...
