Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

I love Boston and go up there at least twice a year (once in the summer, and once at Christmas and yes, I love Boston in the winter).  While I’m there, inevitably, I come across interesting goings-on in the streets and I’ve learned to bring my camera with me at all times. Just.  In.  Case.  So here are some fleeting moments from a trip to Boston in July, 2010, which for some inexplicable and extremely fortuitous reason was rife with photographable events.

A living statue street performer. The kids looking at her seem to be universally befuddled.

The “Barrel Roll”, part of the Jose Cuervo games, wherein the contestants try to climb a giant inflatable pyramid and the gamesmen, a la Donkey Kong, try to knock the players off by throwing barrels at them. Have a tequila!

Swan boats at the Boston Public Gardens.  It’s so dreamy. Welcome to Fairyland.

Makin’ way for ducklings, Boston Public Garden.

Shakespeare in the Park, Boston Common.

Some kind of reality show filming, Boylston St.

And on, and on.  I could probably post fifty pictures without breaking too hard of a sweat.

You can see all the contributors to this Weekly Photo Challenge here, and I’m linking below to some of my particular favorites this week.

      LOL I didn’t realize how funny that picture was until after I took it. Those kids cracked me up. Hooray for body language! 🙂 Thanks.

      LOL Barrel Roll looks like a shortcut to tears, depending on how seriously you’ve taken the “Cuervo” part of the Cuervo Games.
