Billy Vail

I was in Cambridge this weekend spending time with friends and shooting a few events. On Sunday I met Billy Vail who is a musician and homeless in Boston and the greater Boston area. We talked for a while about a number of things including music, cats, the scene in Cambridge, and the dangers he runs into living on the streets. Billy has been homeless for a year, aside from the cold he says his biggest risk is robbery and worse from junkies. His love of cats also serves as his protection, he wears a tiger tail which is filled with spare change and has the potential to be quite the weapon. When he can Billy allegedly visits his cat in West Roxbury and his girlfriend’s house in Dorchester where he can do his laundry. He’s in need of a couch to crash on and is willing to pay a small fee if you stumble upon him in your travels. Please respect copyright, all images ©Alyssa Stone Photography | All Rights Reserved

Renegade Playground Challenge

This past Saturday October 6th, I traveled to Manchester, NH for the Renegade Playground Challenge. Wearing a white sweatshirt, I clearly didn’t know what I was in for. A brisk morning turned into a balmy, fun, (and mud), filled afternoon. While I couldn’t participate in the 5k with all my gear, (excuses, excuses), I certainly ended the day looking like I had. Note, do not climb obstacles if you’re as clumsy as I am, bruises and cuts are inevitable. I even took the opportunity to sneak up a water-tower for some cool shots above the race. Believe me, this race was a fun as it looks! I absolutely hope to shoot another soon.

35mm ode to summer

Please respect copyright, prints available upon request | All rights reserved ©Alyssa Stone Photography 2012

She said I cannot tell you why, she said I’m in a rush
There are softer dreams for you to think about now love
Things that you have seen this night that run by that the river’s flow
I can use you if you’re in the flame, I’m a growin’ old

And no this is not the summer dream she said
It’s just the drying of the lawns I want to leave out there

Well I’ve said I’ve sailed the frozen corners of the dark Atlantic Sea
And I drifted on the waves and the mirage beneath
And never have I felt such numb and pointless searchin’ true
As when I set my eyes and torched the plans on the mark of you

And no this is not the summer dream she said
It’s just the drying of the lawns I want to leave out there

She said you follow me like sheep that think this king could do some harm
But I tell you boy I’m frightened still with a sister’s heart
I set my eyes upon the shore whenever you wake up
I’m leavin’ because you don’t feel what you’re dreamin’ of

And no this is not the summer dream she said
It’s just the drying of the lawns I want to leave out there

But I will stand down in the hallway with no thought to leave the set
Of a movie I will sure as hell not end just yet
If pain and awful romance then this mornin’ is for us
It will never ran and our last dream will leave this house

And no this is not the summer dream I said
It’s just the drying of the lawns that want to leave us here
Oh it’s the drying of the lawns that want to leave us here
-Tallest Man on Earth, “The Drying of the Lawns”
