2012 Pictures of the Year


Dawn Bowley said the verdict brought her some sense of peace. And yet, Dawn said of her father, “He’s still not here.”

The last photos I took from the trial were when officers led 18-year-old Aaron Deveau out of a courtroom in handcuffs to begin serving a year in jail. His father, mother, grandmother and other family members wept. So did members of Donald Bowley family, and just about everyone in the courtroom.

A Firefighter drags a horse to the back of the fully involved 4-alarm fire at 6 Tanglewood Dr., Newton, in March.

Photographers Take: I could see a lot of smoke through the woods from my car while driving to Tanglewood Drive in Newton, N.H. Traffic was heavy and it was barely moving. I parked my car and walked through a field to the street just behind the fire. Making my way closer, I watched firefighters stop spraying the back of the home and wondered why they stopped. Then I heard one of them say, “That’s it.” The water from a tanker was used up.

The fire quickly spread and went through the roof and engulfed the home. More tankers arrived and firefighters got the fire under control, but most of the home was gone. Luckily no one was hurt and firefighters saved the front of the home.

Most fires I go to for the paper are put out very quickly. In this case, without a water supply, firefighters had no chance.

North Reading high school baseball coach Frank Carey is doused by his players with a cooler full water after winning the MIAA Division 3 Baseball Championships against Mount Everett High School in Worcester in June.

Photographers Take: After winning the baseball game, North Reading High School coach Frank Carey was talking with reporters. I noticed behind him the players gathered quickly and picked up a bucket. They moved in quickly and dumped the water that caught him by surprise.
