After the horrors of yesterday, I thought I'd take a moment to celebrate the courageous city of Boston.
Over the past few years, photographer Brian Mengini has taken images of dancers in, on, around and framed by some of Boston's landmarks—both big (the John Hancock tower) and small (one of the South End's old-fashioned street lamps). They're photographic love letters to the city, and they capture both its beauty and something of its indomitable spirit. I've shared a few of them below.
Stay strong, Boston. We—even the Yankees fans among us—are rooting for you.
