It’s easy to fall into the habit of shooting the water around Marblehead – from beaches, parks, public ways and elsewhere. I have been trying to be better about shooting other areas of town farther away from the water and which help showcase the beauty of the Town of Marblehead.
On one outing in late April, I had gone out to shoot a particle tree along Washington Street. After getting that composition, I made my way around the grounds of the Jeremiah Lee mansion and found a number of new vantage points from which to capture Abbot Hall and its newly restored tower.
This view of Abbot Hall towering over the nearby houses on Washington Street was an easy favorite. The ability to feature a landmark of Marblehead from a slightly different perspective is one of my favorite aspects of shooting in this town.
