I was sent to Winthrop as other Boston Herald photographers fanned out to other coastal communities. It was IMPOSSIBLE to keep myself and my camera gear dry and salt water free. I returned home and spent 45 minutes cleaning and drying any sand or salt off my cameras and lenses.

The HMS Bounty sank today in heavy seas caused by Hurricane Sandy. The U.S Coast Guard rescued 15 of the 16 crew members while the replica tall ship’s captain is still missing, according to Reuters and the USCG. When I saw the news reports of this tragedy this morning, the ship’s name sounded familiar. I searched my photo files and found these photos that I snapped in 2009, during Sail Boston.
As the public and several dozen Boston police officers looked on in bright sunshine, a memorial sign honoring slain Boston police detective Roy Sergei was unveiled in the Back Bay today, on the 25th anniversary of his death. Detective Sergei’s wife Maryellen, sister Janet, daughter Michelle, and son Brendan along with Billy Kennedy, the late detective’s patrol partner who was also shot that night, were in attendance as well. Please see my photo below of Billy Kennedy and Sergei’s daughter Michelle Sergei Casiano just after the unveiling today. Please click on the photo for a special video of today’s ceremony.
