Staff photographers share the stories behind the year’s most powerful pictures, selected by the editors of the Globe Magazine and the Boston Globe photo department.

July 4 / BostonIt’s my second year covering the Boston Pops Independence Day concert. Last year, I was facing the crowd. I remember people cheering and thinking it would be great if I could have all these hands raised in the background. I thought, I’ll just do that next year. So that’s what I did: I went back to the same place to make a similar image from the other side. It comes at the very end, as they’re playing the “1812 Overture,” the confetti has been shot in the sky, and everyone is cheering. (Keith Bedford/Globe Staff)
