Beautiful street portraits about regular humans. And in the wake of the crisis on Monday, the page took to Boston. The pictures are beautiful. View and read the intriguing captions on each as a bit of a break from this Wednesday.
A few captions that resonated with me:
A boy looking out at Harvard Yard:
“It’s easy to get caught up in the competition. Whenever I do, I try to step back, play some guitar, and remember that it was my lifelong dream just to be here.”
A candid of an old couple
“He was training to be a surgeon when we got married. One night he came home from two days straight on the job, and I’d cooked him dinner. Right before he fell asleep in his plate of food, he asked me what movie I’d like to watch. I thought it was so sweet.”
A photo of a man at night
“If everyone in the room believes the same thing, I get worried.”
I could scroll through these for hours. Take a few moments and look for yourselves.
