The Jeremiah Lee Mansion has been featured on this site a number of times but I found this shot from last December that hadn’t yet seen the light of day.  Each year as the parking ban goes into effect, I make it a point to visit historic downtown Marblehead and capture images of the empty streets much as they appeared for hundreds of years.

On this particular morning, I found a new composition for this old building as I discovered that St. Michael’s steeple could be seen just to the left of the building behind the branches of a nearby tree.  While the sky didn’t offer much interest, the windows of the Lee Mansion reflected the first light of dawn and added a touch of color to an otherwise muted morning scene.
