New Stuff on the Christian Science Church Plaza

I actually don't know if it's called the Christian Science Church Plaza, but that's what it is.  Rosemary and I were there on Saturday, because she had seen stuff going up and wanted to investigate.  One proud sculptress, who was installing her 2 "Tiger Mom" figures, said that on the following Saturday there would be a big reception with politicians speaking, etc.

This wind sculpture had many moving parts.

Out for some Fun

Here's that funny-looking building as seen from the entrance of the new wing of the Gardner, where I and my neighbor have come to see the Anders Zorn exhibit.

Here's the front facade.

Here's some of the plants in the greenhouse.

The stall doors in the women's room.  Beautiful!

In front of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.


This woman (college student?), whom we met going to lunch on the green line,  kindly allowed me to take her photo.  She and a couple of friends had been celebrating Holi.

Originally, we were going to eat at Cafe Jaffa, but that part of Boston was still closed off.  We strolled over to the closed area.  A woman had brought her therapy cats.


The media were still there in force.

My Only Contribution


My only contribution to the mass of Marathon Bombing photos is this snap of Norfolk St. today (Saturday) taken as I walked to work.  As you can see, the Somerville police left some of their barricades.  The barricades were still there when I came home.

Yesterday I stayed at home like a rule-abiding citizen.   I noticed from TV coverage that some people did come out and talk to the media people at Norfolk St.

My neighbor was out of milk, so she called up Albert who lives above his store, Albert's Market, across the street.  While Albert was taking care of her, a friend from church came in to buy lottery tickets.

Then when they lifted the shelter-at-home-order you could hear millions of dogs barking as they finally got their walks.

Too Late

It sounded like the Greek Independence Day Parade would last longer, but when when got to the Common, everything appeared to be over.  So I just got a few shots of people in costumes.  Then Rosemary and I went shopping.

For No Reason--Photoshop


I photoshopped this figure drawing today.
