Portraits


These two portraits were taken Saturday evening while I was on the World Wide Photo Walk in Boston. Though both are portraits, they are different in style and subject. The humorous portrait of the group of men above is very expressive and captures their individual sense of style. They requested I take their photo as they wanted to document their night on the town. I heard they were pleased with the results, but didn't want me to use their names.

The portrait of the two young women below shows their poise and a little bit of a sense of adventure as they were spending the weekend in Boston from their native New York. They asked me to take a picture with their camera, so I asked to take theirs but failed to ask their names; if they see their picture I hope they like it.

So a few of us managed to participate in the world wide photo walk. The top image is full of guy energy. Really wonderful.

Looks like the guys have already started on a few beers, and why not.

Fun group shot. People are funny when they see a camera.

I really like your choice of monochrome for "the men in Boston" image. The black and white pulls these fun-loving individuals together for a special moment.
