Archive for December, 2010

Here are some of the more memorable moments that I have photographed this year. I am based here in Eastern Massachusetts, so I am “hyper-local” if you will. One won’t find any international, or even national for that matter, photos in this collection. What one will find here is immediate news, or as we in the news industry call it, “spot news.”  All these photos were taken by me and were snapped mostly on my shift at the Boston Herald, for whom I want to give a big shout out to and a thank you. Most of the following photos have photo galleries attached to them, so one can click on the photo and a series of photos from that event will pop up. Thanks for viewing and Happy New Year!

SNOW! On This Date in My Photo History: Dec 17, 2007

As snow is a real possibility this weekend I figured I’d break into my stash of photos and show this photo, that I snapped exactly 3 years ago today. Here, Boston EMS personnel receive a helping hand from civilians in Kenmore Square after their ambulance got stuck in heavy snow.
