From the Rooftops – Looking up Washington Street

  • Looking up Washington Street

I have had my eye on a particular rooftop since before this project began.  It belongs to the apartment on 128 Washington Street and I had tried to contact the tenants there on a few occasions to see about shooting from this vantage point.  I had nearly given up until I walked into Shipshape one day and was informed by the owner that the apartment was currently vacant.  I quickly phoned Gerald Kaplan who was renting the space and we arranged to meet near sunset.

The view, as you can see, was clearly worth the wait.  I spent an hour up there with Gerry photographing varying vantage points as the sun slowly set.  This was one of my favorite images though I have a few others to show in the weeks to come.
