One of Boston's Finest


Edward is a member of the Boston Emergency Medical Services (EMS). I met him while he was on duty at the Scooper Bowl fundraiser for the Jimmy Fund on Thursday. While his pose here is serious as befits his calling, I found him to be easy going and quick to laugh, great assets for an Emergency Medical Technician.

He looks so reassuring. I think if he appeared during an emergency I would feel safer. But why was his fist clenched?

One has to admire the courage of the EMS members.
Hello and Thank you to Edward.

He wants to look severe, but I can see the little smile on the corner of his lips...Ü
He looks strong and secure, a good thing for his job.
You made another great portrait.
(And I like very much the buildings behind!There are really "bostonian" to me , and offer a good frame to your picture)
