I’ll admit it. The new neighborhood is noticeably more decadent than the old ‘hood, interesting in a different way. Whereas before I was shooting overlapping geometries of slanted shingled roofs and driveways, nearly all of the residences here are built to the brick sidewalk’s edge.

My building is rather plain, except for the vaguely Greek clay-colored engraving above the front entryway. But the structures like the one pictured above… it’s a struggle for the most efficient packing in of ornatitude. Of calculated luxuromics.

I realized recently that the green leaves would soon be gone, so I might as well shoot the easily given Beacon Hill shots before Autumn burns them off in a month-long flash of orange. This is far from the “given shot,” but alas the branch plays a critical, timely role.

Walk and shoot.
