It’s Patriots Day in Massachusetts and you know what that means! Or maybe you don’t.
Patriots Day in Massachusetts commemorates the battle of Lexington and Concord — the start of the American Revolution in 1775. It is also the day the Boston Marathon is run. This year is the 116th Boston Marathon and, fittingly enough, I will be running it for the 16th time.
With the temperatures expected to hit 90° F in Boston it will, without a doubt, be the slowest and most miserable marathon I have ever run. I’m running with a friend, who is running his first marathon. The plan is to take it slow, treat it as a moving party and try to stay cool.
With the heat, this image is somewhat appropriate. It is from an old foundry in my neck of the woods. I’ve driven past it many times but had never gone inside. I was out shooting along the canal over the weekend and decided to check it out. The molds for sewer covers, gears and other machine parts can be found strewn around the place. The green glow comes from the corrugated green fiberglass panels covering the windows.
