A daily image of life in Charlestown for Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Patch reader NeenTheBrand took this shot of Old Ironsides from her backyard at around 7 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14. Got a great photograph of Charlestown? It can be of something big or small, grand or simple. Whatever captures your eye, capture it on your camera, too, and email it to email@example.com, text to 781-217-4233 or tweet @CharlestwnPatch. Then add in a line or two about where or when the photo was taken. We'll run them as quickly as possible, posting a new photo every day on Charlestown Patch.

The USS Constitution was tugged in to Boston Harbor to fire off her cannons.
The USS Constitution was tugged into Boston Harbor to celebrate the anniversary of its October 1797 launch. Tugboats pulled Old Ironsides out to Castle Island, where she fired off thunderous shots as the HMS Dauntless and many spectators looked on. Enjoy the video and the photos of the gun salute. It was wicked windy, so the video doesn't do the sound of the cannons much justice.

A collection of links to great photos of this weekend's historic 200th anniversary trip of the USS Constitution.
On Sunday, we brought you photos from the dock as the USS Constitution left for its first sail in 15 years. We also threw open the doors for you to add your own photos from the day's historic event. But we don't exactly have a photo staff. So, we thought we'd show you what other organizations—that do have photography staffs—took away from the day's events. Where can you find more photos of the USS Constitution from Sunday? Click below.
