Runners who did not finish the April 15th marathon due to the terror attack had the chance to do it today. The Boston Strong OneRun started at 10am in Kenmore Square and ended shortly thereafter at the Boylston St. finish. Many runners became quite emotional t the finish. Here are 2 of my photos. Look for more coverage in Sunday’s Boston Herald.

I apologize for being late with this. Last week I received a call from a relative of an elderly tennis champ that I had photographed in 2002. She had said that her 102 year old relative Dan Bushnell had passed away in March and that she was interested in obtaining a print of the photo that I had snapped. Dan was a tennis champion well into his 90′s. He was 91 when I photographed him competing against a 90 year old at Longwood in Chestnut Hill. Here is the original caption from that day. Sr. Tennis player Dan Bushnell, age 91 of Massachusetts at right, congratulates Albert Gaskill age 90 yrs 10 months, of North Carolina, who Bushnell called “Young Fella” after Gaskill beat him in the semi-finals at Brookline,MA. Here is Dan’s obituary.
I snapped this from Winthrop today. A tricky exposure for sure. I ended up deciding on underexposing as plane after plane “shadowed” like this. The shadow would appear for just a split second. This was the heavy fog that enveloped portions of the area in the late afternoon today.
Who knew that this SWAT crew from the Transit Police, just hours after these photos were snapped, was going to make one of the biggest arrests in Massachusetts history? Here they are clearing houses on Laurel St. in the early morning hours of April 19.
Peter Reed, a Laurel St. Watertown resident, moves away from his house as police SWAT teams evacuated residents and searched for one of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.
MIT Police Chief John DiFava is seen one minute after today’s moment of silence to honor those who died in the Boston Marathon bombings, including MIT police officer Sean Collier. The chief received a hug from one of approximately 200 people that lined the sidewalk in front of the MIT police station to commemorate the horrific event. Please see tomorrow’s Boston Herald, as columnist Peter Gelzinis talks at length to the chief.

I took a position on a bridge over Route 93N on the Stoneham/Winchester line as what seemed to be 100 police cars escorted the hearse carrying MIT police officer Sean Collier. Here are my photos and please check out the Boston Herald on Sunday for much more information.
Wow. Exhale. What a horrible turn of events, with the death, last night of MIT police officer Sean Collier, just several hours after a healing prayer service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. I photographed the beautiful service as dignitaries and common folks mixed with President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama. I also photographed the huge search for the lone remaining bomber. My shift started at 2am this morning and lasted until 5pm. I had never imagined that such sights were possible in an American town (Watertown). My photo gallery starts with Li Jing, the devastated roommate of Boston Marathon victim Lingzi Lu, as she receives a warm hug from Sister Olga Yaqob at the service, followed by photos of President Barack Obama. The other photos are of the very tense search, overnight and today, in Watertown. There were many people stopped, some at gunpoint, and later released. There were also evacuation sweeps of homes where residents were escorted out at 5:45am, as heavily armed patrols scoured their street and homes. I snapped these photos on assignment for the Boston Herald. Thank you for viewing.
