I haven’t yet fully processed what happened yesterday. It’s just too soon and there isn’t enough information and I don’t want to join into the speculation discussion. I’ve gotten in touch with most people I know in the Boston area and no bad news there, but my thoughts are certainly with those who aren’t and those I haven’t heard back from. Peace and long life.
A throng of passengers exit the red line train towards the green line substation of the Park Street station. Many of these passengers are headed towards the 3rd home game of the Boston Red Sox’s 2012 season.
Growing up in Houston, Texas, I’d never known the beauty and utility of public transportation until I came to Boston for school. Over my four years in Boston, I’ve become enamored by the motion and change that exists within the subway system and the people that use this service. As I revisited some of the popular stations of the Red Line, I began understanding and accepting the changing nature of the subway, stopped looking for the base movement of the trains and the people, and started seeing the uniqueness of each and every visit. Each passenger lives on their own terms and have their own personalities and I sought to capture the souls of my subjects by photographing their defining moments- moments that would tell me a bit of who they are and what their stories are.

I made this photograph during a short photo walk with the Boston University Photography Club through Boston’s financial district. The woman in the photograph was propelling her wheelchair with her feet.

My last several posts and many of my coming posts will be photographs I made for a basic photography course I took last spring in my final semester of undergraduate study at Boston University. Since the course was a black-and-white course, I thought I should throw some color photographs in to add some variety.
This particular photograph of the Charles River and MIT behind it was taken during an outing with the Boston University Photography Club in which we tried our hands at long exposure photography and light painting. BU Today made of us in which I speak a few words if you are interested in viewing here.

As was the case with my previous three posts, I made this photograph while completing the night photography assignment in the basic photography course I took in my last semester at Boston University. The wall in the photograph is of the Greater Boston Health Center, a part of the Planned Parenthood health services network.

Like my last two posts, this photograph was also made for my basic photography class. Each of these three photographs was made for the night photography assignment in which we had to turn in 200 photographs (including 15 finished photographs) each of scenes with direct light and incident light.

It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve posted anything, and I honestly have no excuse. I’ll get back on it immediately. Here’s another photograph I made for the basic photography class I took in my final semester at Boston University for the Night Photography assignment, this time of the New England Holocaust Memorial.
