Bobby Orr flies again!

Rarely does a city embrace an athlete the way Boston embraced Bobby Orr. I snapped this photo today while working at the Boston Herald, and my phone and twitter account have not stopped ringing since. I certainly know that I have not snapped an award-winning photograph here, rather an everyday, run-of-the-mill photo. The response to the photo is a testament to the power of the relationship between Orr and the city that still loves him.

Photos of historic Boston snowstorm.

Here, below, is my contribution to a very strong  job of covering the storm by the reporters and photographers at the Boston HeraldLastly, please spread the word regarding cleaning the exhaust pipes of your car before starting the car. The last photo here shows Boston firefighter Steve MacDonald peering into a car where a boy was killed yesterday after being overcome by carbon monoxide fumes.

A Photo of Today’s Lightning in Boston.

Here is the only photo that I was able to pull out from this morning’s violent lightning storm. I ran to the Herald roof after leaving the photo desk, as I was a fill-in assignment editor today. The storm seemed to be a safe distance away so that I would not be in any danger up there. All of a sudden the lightning that had been in front of me and over the Prudential Center was now in back and over me. I waited for the heavy rain to stop and got the tail end of the storm exiting the coastline over Southie.

This moment was around 9:30pm tonight. A strong bolt, but I wish my foreground was a bit more interesting. Maybe next time…
