This image: Veteran Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki says he was about 40 feet away from the first bomb to explode at the Boston Marathon last April 15. The force of the blast knocked down runner Bill Iffrig, and police officers responded instantly, as did Tlumacki, who took this picture within seven seconds of the blast. As the only photographer nearby, he says, “my instinct was to go forward,” capturing the juxtaposition between a tradition and terror.
