Sunny Bench

Extremely cold weather with high barometic pressure makes for brillant sunlight. This bench is at the Charles/MGH (Massachusetts General Hospital) T-Stop on the Red Line. Got my foot x-rayed today. Excellent results. Hopefully in a week I will start wearing flat shoes instead of a plastic aircast. Need to practice walking at home without cast before going out on the streets. Yippee! Almost over. Hopefully I will get around more soon to take photos of something more than my worn path of routine daily life.

Frosty Bench

Caught this bench moments after a squall ended. For those in warmer climates, a squall is an intense snowstom which is characterized by very large flakes resulting in an almost total "white out," that is, little or no visibility, as well as, very high and gusting winds. A squall lasts about 10 minutes and vanishes. This one dropped about one half an inch of snow which promptly blew away.

Hancock Tower

Yet again the Hancock Tower. This was a glorious, warm day. Crystal clear skies. Amazing how the skin of this 60 story building reflects the atmosphere!

Samuel Eliot Morison

Monment found on Commonwealth Avenue Mall. I always thought this kinda neat because the person memorialized is in civilian clothing and not a war hero of some kind. Alas! When I googled, I find that although an academic tenured at Harvard University, Morison was the official historian for the U.S. Navy and a Rear Admiral.

Snow Shower

Caught this snow shower in a public alley between Newbury and Boylston Streets. Snow usually photographs so grey. This is a bit colorful and lively.
