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.
