"Amazing Alec's" Running Sneakers at Copley Square Memorial

This is one of a series of photos I took on the last day of the Copley Square memorial site for the Boston Marathon bombings. The memorial featured a collection of well-wishes and messages of sympathy, hope, and strength. It was taken down on June 25, 2013, and its contents will be archived in a more permanent location.
