Red


A statue of legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach at Quincy Market. He is seated on a bronzed court side bench next to a bronzed pair of Larry Bird’s shoes. Those shoes are big and almost everyone who passes puts his or her foot on them to compare sizes. It’s fun to watch.

India Wharf


Boston has retained the old names of many of the wharves along the waterfront. This is India Wharf, so named because trade with the Indies was a big part of commerce in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is also Long Wharf which reputedly extended a mile out into the harbor in the old days. Now, Long Wharf is a marina for tour boats and pleasure craft of all sorts and India Wharf is hemmed in on the right by the New England Aquarium. The morning that I made these images, I reached the wharf as the sun was just hitting it. I really like how the dolphin statue shines in the sunlight.
