There are going to be a lot of ways people remember the Boston Marathon Bombings today on their first anniversary. But the Boston Globe's finish line photo was one of the most anticipated. The Globe, fresh off of a Pulitzer win for its breaking news coverage of the 2013 bombings, released the interactive photo on Tuesday.
Here's what it looks like, zoomed out.
At the Boston Globe's site, each person is tagged with their name and relationship to the tragic event. There are survivors, family members, bystanders, and first responders, all at the finish line together. As the Globe explains in a piece on how the photo was made "nobody wanted to leave" once the photo shoot was over.
The city is filled with remembrances today:
— The families of victims Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu, Krystle Campbell and Sean Collier gathered with Mayor Marty Walsh, Gov. Deval Patrick and Cardinal Sean O'Malley this morning at the site of the bombings.

— Bombing victims J.P and Paul Norden, both of whom lost legs in the explosion, are walking the race route starting this morning to raise money for their prosthetic limbs.
—At noon, Vice President Joe Biden and other officials will gather with family members and survivors for a remembrance event at the Hynes Convention Center.
—To mark the time of last year's bombings, there will be a flag raising ceremony and moment of silence at the finish line between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.
