Early morning lightning over Boston’s Graves Light.

I tried to photograph lightning late last night during the first and second waves of some pretty hefty thunderstorms. Things did not go as planned, as the lightning became too unpredictable, thus too dangerous. I did get a shot of lightning over the city of Boston, from my perch along the Winthrop coastline. Dejected, I went home and then to bed. Just prior to bed, the weather radar on my trusty iPhone app., was showing a line of heavy storms bubbling-up near the Connecticut/Rhode Island border. These storms appeared to be growing and moving toward Boston. I was too tired and dejected to wait for them, so I wait to bed. Ninety minutes later, at approximately 2:30am, I was awakened by thunder. I noticed that the frequency of the lightning was impressive, with maybe 1 lightning bolt per every 5 seconds. I headed out again but was a bit too late, as I needed some time to get set up (with a tripod, etc,) and to get to my position (trying for a city of Boston skyline foreground). This storm was too fast and the heavy rain, as well, was not helping matters. Finally, thinking the storm was over, it was time to get home and go to bed. Then, my weather app. pointed to some regeneration of the lightning at the tail end, the Southwest end, of the storm. I set up my tripod, Canon EOS 1DX, cable release, and Canon 100-400mm II lens, setting it at 248mm, along the coast of Winthrop. I set the ISO to 50, and my exposure was 5 seconds at F5.6. I do not ever like to “fudge” a photo, so whenever the first burst happens, I then shutdown the camera, thus keeping it real with the one moment of impact. I pointed the camera toward Graves Light lighthouse, and I waited, and waited. Finally, at 3:18am this morning, four large lightning bolts, during a split-second cloudburst, appeared over the Boston Harbor landmark. This photo is almost full frame, as I cropped in from both sides and a little from the top. I have a bit of a too-tight scenario happening at the base of the photo because it was hard for me to tell where the lighthouse and horizon lines were due to the extreme darkness. I was happy nonetheless. Thanks for viewing my site.

I was planning on photographing the moon over Boston Light Wednesday night. Below is the finished product with 3 other photos I shot last night. The moon hid behind haze and clouds for the first several minutes, disrupting my plans to get the moon directly behind the lighthouse. This (below) is the moon at during the first moments that the moon was visible, unfortunately. It just go to show that the best plans are still at the mercy of nature. Very frustrating. When it finally popped up, it was a bit too high for my liking. I will try again to get the pleasing photo that I have been trying for. Prior to the moon shot, I photographed the sun, which was a hot, hazy ball as it was setting over the Tobin Bridge. I also photographed two high altitude planes. I shot all these at Deer Island using a Canon 800mm lens, carried on my back as I rode my bike. HEAVY, for sure. Below the sun and moon photos, are photos of some of the preparations that I needed.
Thanks for viewing, and if this is your first time here, please follow me on Twitter and Instagram @pictureboston.

Firefighter David Atherton did not die in the line of duty. That fact didn’t matter this morning to his fellow Stoneham firefighters and his brothers and sisters at the Boston Fire Dept., as they saluted and escorted his body from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Atherton was accidentally shot and killed by a lifelong friend. See that Boston Herald story here.

There is magic above, just look up. Lot Airlines flight LO26, Warsaw-NYC (JFK), flying at 37,975′ passes United Airlines flight UA999, JFK-Brussels, which is at 34,975′. I photographed this at 7:34pm tonight, from my driveway in Winthrop. Scroll down for the very cool radar readout, courtesy of the very awesome planefinder.net.

My Boston brush with The Greatest, Muhammad Ali.

I photographed Muhammad Ali on the night of November 1, 1994, at Boston’s Park Plaza Hotel. I met the Boston Herald’s late/great boxing scribe, George Kimball in Ali’s room. His wife Lonnie was there, as was photographer and Ali biographer and confidant Howard Bingham and his mom, Willie, who I photographed hugging Ali. I did NOT know at the time that Howard was an accomplished/award-winning photographer. When it was time to leave, I gave the camera to Howard and told him where the button was to push and that the camera was pre-focussed. Everybody in the room laughed as Howard said: “I think I can handle it” 🙂

Rest in peace Muhammad Ali.

Sometimes I run into people I’ve photographed in the past under the strangest circumstances.

Jim Moynihan was watching “The Price is Right” in his West Roxbury apartment building Wednesday morning, when the show was preempted for local news coverage of a police pursuit on Route 128.

He fixated on the television as a news helicopter streamed live video of the chase along Rte. 128 and the off/on ramps in Needham and Dedham.

Moynihan started to recognize the terrain.

The footage showed the suspect’s heavily-damaged vehicle stop in a parking lot. A man exited and started to run.

A few minutes later, there was a knock on Moynihan’s door. He opened it and a man asked him if he could come in to his apartment for a few minutes.

It was the man police were pursuing in the chase Moynihan had been watching on TV.

He stood there and before he could say anything, the man took out a wad of cash and offered to pay him for letting him in.

Moynihan said he shut the door and locked it, later recalling that adrenaline took hold of him as he slammed the door shut. In recounting the story to me, Moynihan said he was not scared.

“Being a cabby in Brookline for over 30 years, you kind of get used to things like that,” he said.

It then dawned on me. I had photographed Moynihan before.

On May 10, 2008, I was looking for feature photos for the Boston Herald. Moynihan was driving his cab when he came upon a turkey in the middle of the street.

I had exited my car to photograph the turkey. Moynihan stopped his cab and stared at the bird for a minute or two.

I struck up a conversation with him while he waited for a green light. I remember he gave me his name and said he would be very excited if the photo made the next day’s edition of the Boston Herald.

See Moynihan today, and in 2008 with his feathered friend. More of my photos from today’s pursuit, including the burning vehicle and injured Walpole police officer Matt Crown are also displayed. Crown was dragged by the suspect’s vehicle as he investigated why the vehicle was stopped in a no stopping zone.

Forty years ago Tuesday, Boston Herald American photographer Stanley Forman photographed a racially-motivated assault that crystallized one of the most tense times in Boston’s history.

While covering a demonstration by white protesters who opposed court-ordered busing to desegregate Boston’s public schools, Forman photographed a white teenager attack a young black lawyer with an American flag. The lawyer, Ted Landsmark, had been walking on City Hall Plaza when he was assaulted.  The protester wielding the flag was 17-year-old Joseph Rakes, who lived in South Boston. 

The photograph became known as “The Soiling of Old Glory” and won the 1977 Pulitzer Prize for spot news photography. 

The act of violence has haunted Boston for years.

The late Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino once said: “No one should have to look at Stanley Forman’s photos but everyone needs to.”

Forman presented Menino with an autographed print of the image for his office at Boston University. Menino told him he hated the picture.  

Since 1983, Forman has been a journalist and videographer with Ch.5 (WCVB-TV) in Boston. We recently discussed his historic photograph. 

bestsjf002

Picture Boston: Let’s start with the obvious, and probably my toughest question. How have Boston’s race relations changed since “Soiling”?

Forman: Forty years later I believe race relations have certainly gotten better. But looking back, not being a black man I did not realize the anger or hatred there was. I was single, no children and I wasn’t busing my children from my neighborhood to another. I grew up in Revere in a white neighborhood  (with) only a handful of blacks in the schools. I guess I was naive about racism. 

Picture Boston: Do you remember the first time you met Ted Landsmark, after the event?

Forman: I’m not sure about the first time I met Ted but I do remember the time my family and I were crossing the street by the Government Center Garage and there was Ted coming the opposite way in the crosswalk. It was very exciting for me to have my family meet him.

Picture Boston: When were you hired at Boston Herald American and how many years were you on staff prior to the photo?

Forman : I began at the Record American November 22, 1966. I had just finished my first photography job being the campaign photographer for Attorney General  Edward Brooke’s successful campaign to become a US Senator.
 
Picture Boston: Was it an assignment or did you hear it on police scanner?

Forman: I had arrived at the office just before 9 a.m. I asked city editor Al Salie what was going on. He told me Gene Dixon was at a demo at City Hall. I asked if I could go and join him. After doing a quick errand I arrived at City Hall as the anti-busing rally was coming down the stairs after visiting city Councilor Louise Day Hicks. Hicks a well known anti-busing proponent invited them in to the chambers for a salute to the flag and had milk and cookies for the group. When they came out of the (building) there was a group of black students going into the Hall and there was a confrontation in front of me. I then switched from my 35 (millimeter) lens to my 20 (millimeter) lens.

Picture Boston : Were you scared for Mr. Landsmark’s safety?

Forman: Yes,  I looked over my shoulder I saw a black man turning into the Plaza. I just knew he was going to be attacked. 

Picture Boston : Were you scared for your safety?

Forman: I ran down as the assault unfolded.  It was over in seconds. BPD only had a couple of cops directly with the group. There (were) dozens waiting on the side lines. I did not have time to think of my safety —  just went with the flow. I did worry about my safety after the photo was published. I was threatened many times.

Picture Boston: Did you know the magnitude of the photograph when you snapped photo?

Forman: I took the image and followed the group to Post Office Square not realizing the impact the image had. Herald American reporter Joe Driscoll  caught up with me in the Square telling me about (what happened) via the AP wire and he was dispatched from the office. I said, “I have the photo of it!”  Of course I had no idea what I had gotten. I knew I had motor drive trouble and there was no instant looking at the back of your camera 40 years ago.

Picture Boston: Have you ever met Joseph Rakes?

I have never met Joe Rakes but I became friendly with his brother Stevie due to the ongoing Whitey Bulger saga. I gave Stevie an autographed copy of the photo.

For more on Ted Landsmark, check out this 3-part story by the Boston Herald’s Jack Encarnacao.

Boston’s annual Shamrock Shootout in West Roxbury.

My day started at the site of West Roxbury’s annual Shamrock Shootout Street Hockey Tournament. Wish I was a kid, again. Very cool! Thanks to the organizers for the invite. I shot these for the Boston Herald.
