I post photographs here from time to time for those who are interested in a bit of the story and the locations behind the pictures.

I shoot most of the photographs on on Martha's Vineyard.

Richard Donahue, Boston Pops

1/80 seconds @ f/5.6
This is Richard Donahue. He is an MBTA police officer who was shot in the confrontation with the Boston Marathon bombers in Watertown. It's really a miracle he survived. On the Fourth of July, my daughter Becky and I went to the Boston Pops show on the Esplanade in Boston. We went, in part, because we thought it was important to defy the fear that terrorists aim for. Richard Donahue was a guest conductor, leading the orchestra in a rousing rendition of "Shipping Up To Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys. It doesn't get more Boston than that. Never Boston Stronger. There wasn't a dry eye in the house.  

He turned around to see the crowd for only a few seconds, and for once, I was ready. I nailed the shutter and fired six frames per second. Good thing Nikon has good auto-focus, because I could see absolutely nothing through the tears.
