What not to Shoot: Yesterday I eluded to an “incident” that I had during my sunrise shoot in Boston. Here’s what happened: It was about 5:45 in the morning when I decided to go home after spending a couple of hours shooting around the Charles River with my buddy Paul. On my way home I stopped off in Charlestown to get a couple of skyline shots from the end of a pier in Boston Harbor. As I was shooting I noticed that a yacht was stopped by a State Police boat in the harbor. That boat was soon followed by a Coast Guard boat. Both boats had the yacht at a complete stop but they weren’t doing anything to the yacht…they just stayed about 50 yards off of his bow and didn’t move, it was weird. At that moment, I gazed over my shoulder and saw the biggest moving object I had ever seen in my life. It was an LNG tanker (liquid natural gas) and it was being guided through the harbor by 4 state police boats, 5 coast guard boats armed with 50 cal. machine guns (one is pictured above) and two helicopters. Naturally is started to take pictures of this entire operation. When I was done, I packed up my gear, turned around and was immediately greeted by a state trooper, a coast guard officer and the harbor patrol. They asked what I was doing, then they took my camera (got confused with all the buttons) then handed it back to me and had me show them all my shots. They made me delete all the pictures that had the entire boat in them. They did a background check on me then sent me on my way…..I think I'll stick to shooting flowers for a while.
