Boston Marathon Bombing
I had been shooting photos at Mile 11 on the marathon course until the last stragglers passed before driving back into Boston. As we live just blocks from the finish line I immediately began hearing sirens upon returning. After seeing the numerous tweets pouring across the screen about what was going on I grabbed my camera and headed towards Copley Sq.
I was able to get about a block away before the police began shutting things down.
