In keeping with the color theme from earlier this week, I looked for the next color that struck me as I scanned my photos and it was blue that carried the day. When I put the yellow set together I included photos with yellow in the background. This time I’ve only included photos where blue is included based on the subject wearing it in some way. I don’t think it matters but thought it was worth noting. I hope that if you’re blue today these blues will help chase them away.
I love maudlin music. The sadder and more tragic the song the more I like it. There are few songs as sad as Blue-Eyed Boston Boy. It tells the story of two soldiers during the Civil War about to head into battle. The song’s namesake asks a comrade to be sure to send word to his mother and love should anything happen to him. Needless to say things go wrong. That’s a Spotify link up there so you can listen to the song if you’d like. It’s pretty sad. I’ve always thought it was a nice name though and the name was the inspiration for today’s set. Hopefully none of these blue-eyed Boston boys will suffer the fate of the song’s hero . . .
While not everyone it the set is necessarily a boy per se, they all have blue eyes and I’m pretty sure all of their pictures were taken in Boston proper.
