I have always wanted to go to Boston, because my mum enjoyed being there in the Winter, and thus Boston is perennially lovely and snow-covered in my mind. This want has suddenly become urgent as there is a Charles LeDray exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.

"In the world of small miracles, I discovered that one of my former students, Charles LeDray, has become famous!"

"Charles LeDray is primarily self-taught, although he attended art school in Seattle and worked as a museum guard at the Seattle Art Museum, both briefly."

"In the age of mechanical art production, the intensity of such a personal working method might be thought to imply madness, or, at the very least, cultural naivete."

There was an early morning parade at Flinders Street Station yesterday, by which I mean a different kind of parade to the daily comings and goings - a fashion parade that was late starting as all fashion parades are. I was kept entertained by the rain, the traffic lights and ordinary synchronicities.
Once you start taking photos like these, it is very easy to just keep clicking and clicking and clicking - the conditions change very quickly and the camera seems to see more than you do. It's very hard to know afterwards if you've captured anything interesting, or if it was just the process that was interesting. Blogger has suggested that these are mildly interesting but not terribly, by allowing me to only upload so many. The last one is my favourite.
