|Colonial Block in Boston|
We were weaving in and out of pedestrian and vehicular traffic on our way to Haymarket when this dazzling sun and shadow scene stopped me. Bell in Hand Tavern was on the corner on the left and the Union Oyster House Restaurant was on the right. The five story buildings were casting interesting shadows and so were the figures. The light was stunning and made for a good painting composition, but it's the people that make you stop and think. Settlers walked the same paths in the eighteen hundreds and even earlier, going about their daily lives. A few vestiges of the past are apparent, but its more different than the same.
