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.
The Boston Public Garden is in full bloom accompanied by sights like this.
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.
The emptiness of Boylston Street
Below are photos from the memorial site with the finish line in the background –
Those pictures of the empty streets are so haunting…
I know. 😦
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.
Things seem to be getting back to “normal” – our new normal. Police are not visible on the subway and the military has left the Boston Common.
Your pictures much better now. We all glad that it’s over.
