This shot is an aperture stack... the cable was shot at f/6.3, the background was shot at f/2.2, and the two were manually blended. I previously called it a focus stack, but, strictly speaking, that would entail different focus distances. I focused on the same point and adjusted the aperture to maintain the bokeh along with the highly defined subject.

Shooting the Vendome firefighters' memorial in Boston gave me even more respect for firemen. Several of the men that died in this fire were off-duty and came in early after hearing about the blaze on the Red Sox broadcast.
I believe the 33 represents Engine 33, which was the first truck to arrive at the burning hotel.
The Hotel Vendome fire was the worst firefighting tragedy in Boston history. 9 firefighters were killed when part of the building collapsed, June 17, 1972.

This is the fountain at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston. It was very windy and the stray water made a cool bokeh effect in this shot. The red and blue was created by using two flashes, one with a red filter and one with a blue filter. They were fired at different times so the water would be in different places when each flash fired.
