Six Years! Where did the time go? On August 14, 2010, I created Wednesdays in Marblehead and posted my first image of the Marblehead fireworks taken just one month prior. As a newcomer to town (we moved here in May 2008), I decided that the best way for me to learn about my new hometown was to photograph it. I had a simple plan to shoot when I could and share an image once per week on Wednesdays (my day off from my regular job as a physician).
What I failed to realize or consider at the time was just how much beauty there was to find within the 4.4 square miles that make up this town. The weekly posts weren’t enough and I soon found myself posting every morning. I went out at sunrise and sunset when I could and often came back with a half dozen new images to share. In the first few months, I would post to the website and Facebook page and feel as though the images were disappearing into the vast sea of the internet with hardly a ripple made. As time went on, more and more people discovered my photography and the audience for the images grew.
After six years, I am shocked to realize that I have shared over 1,500 images of Marblehead.
Rather than try to fit all those images into a single slideshow, I chose my favorites from the past six years (technically 7 since the first images were taken in 2009) and put them together. The five minute show should provide new and longtime fans of this page a nice review of images I’ve made and scenes they’ll instantly recognize in these past six years of Wednesdays in Marblehead.
