On Wednesday, I visited Waterside Cemetery to capture a tree displaying peak foliage. As I explored various angles and compositions, I happened upon a gnome in Marblehead. The little statue was standing among fallen leaves and seemed to have been there for years as he had developed a large vertical crack at one point.

I was so enamored with this Marblehead gnome that I shot him twice that day and with different lenses. I couldn’t decide which I liked better so here are both images of the gnome I found on a Wednesday in Marblehead.
