Shadows on State Street

  • The mid-day sun casts shadows on State Street with historic homes leading towards the flag flying from a crane at the landing

On Monday, in the middle of an incredibly hot Labor Day, I ventured out of the house having spied some clouds.  Shooting in the middle of the day can be difficult with harsh light and strong shadows. I decided to head to historic downtown Marblehead first and noticed the mid-days sun casting shadows on State Street.

I watched the traffic and crossed into the middle of the street briefly to capture the view of these historic home leading towards the landing where a large flag was caught in a gust of wind. From this direction, the sky held few clouds but the deep blue color combined with the deep shadows helped set the mood of a hot end-of-summer day in Marblehead.
