Almost One Week After The Boston Marathon


It has been almost a week, a very long week, since two bombs exploded at The Boston Marathon and only a day since the entire world watched the arrest of “Suspect 2” live on television. This resilient city has started to get back to a sense of normalcy but the remnants of the horror that occurred are still visible.

Although a bit more relaxed, uniformed soldiers are still visible in the Boston Common and their military vehicles are still present.

While arriving at the corner of Boylston and Berkeley Streets, furrylittlegnome was surrounded by “comfort dogs”. This dog, named Stella, is from Dog B.O.N.E.S.

  1. Those pictures of the empty streets are so haunting…

    The only thing that I can compare this to is some of the old photos of WWII where the only visible on some streets were allied tanks. That and the streets of NYC after 911.

    I like that there are comfort dogs. May your streets return to normal, and may we never forget.

  3. Your pictures much better now. We all glad that it’s over.
