  2. Beautiful selection -- every picture is wonderful. Surprisingly (to me) the Jazz player just might be my favorite this time. (Surprising because I am always amazed at how wonderful black and white pictures can be!)

  39. Your Boston Public Garden picture is pretty, Carol. Did you let Art Muse go there? Dogs like gardens.
    We lived in Manchester, NH for three years and came down to Boston several times each year. I loved Commonwealth Blvd back then, the first Radio Shack store was there (I am a Ham Radio person).
