Hey guys! I'm sure you're all aware of the terrible explosions in Boston. Just another sign of how street photography can be dangerous sometimes, especially when we don't think about it and don't expect anything like that. I hope none of those who live in Boston or visited it yesterday got injured. Take care!
As a Bostonian I certainly appreciate this. Let's be careful though not to take the real and perceived dangers out of perspective. Despite the discomfort that we sure all feel at this point at the sight of trash cans let alone the 24-h "news" coverage of it we should not stop doing what we're all doing. The likelihood of falling victim to whatever insane kind of person responsible for this is pretty small compared to our everyday risks. You're very likely more at risk of being hit by a car or falling off a ladder still.
And I say this as someone who only wasn't right there at that time due to a scheduling conflict...
+2. All my thoughts to people of Boston. Stay strong. A very memorable vacation at one one time in my life. Being a lifetime Bruins fan I visited the gardens the year before they tore them down. Now I have two NHL teams close to the heart. Jets and Bruins
