My photos below show the 7th annual Hub On Wheels citywide bike ride, which filled Storrow Drive westbound this morning. According to the sponsoring group’s website, hubonwheels.org, (HOW) was founded in 2005 with three goals: create an important civic event, showcase Boston’s neighborhoods and parks, and raise money for important causes. The routes looped through Downtown, the Back Bay, Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Hyde Park, Mattapan, Dorchester,and Southie.

I was photographing the 2nd of 3 deliberately set fires in the Pratt street area of Allston when neighbors pointed firefighters toward another fire that was burning. I ran with the firefighters, the arson squad and Boston police arson detective James Freeman toward the rear of an Ashford street home. Heavy fire was pushing out from the car and starting to ignite the shingles on the side of the structure. My photos below show Detective James Freeman and firefighters stretching hoses to the fire. The last photo shows Jeff Intinarelli, as he checks his totaled, still smoldering car. In all, this morning’s 3 arson fires destroyed a total of 5 cars. This makes a total of 8 deliberate burns in the span of 7 weeks in this small area of Allston. Over 10 cars have been destroyed.

I used an 800mm lens for last night’s setting sun, seen from Bayswater street in East Boston. I then turned the camera around and photographed this jet lineup, with Cape Air leading the big boys.
I snapped this photo today, September 11, 2011, showing Boston firefighters from Ladder 17 and Engine 7, standing at attention at the exact moment, ten years later, of the second World Trade tower collapse.
This was the amazing sunset last night, September 10, 2011. Beautiful. I snapped this from Nahant with an 800mm lens and a 1.4x teleconverter.
