Almost exactly six years ago, Abbot Hall was in the midst of much needed repairs and I somehow talked my way (with permission) to the top of the scaffolding that surrounded the building. This was before the availability of drones making such shots commonplace. Back then I recall sticking flyers under doors throughout historic downtown Marblehead hoping for a widow’s walk or some other vantage point from which to find new compositions of this town.

The view from the scaffolds at Abbot Hall did not disappoint – even if the light wasn’t ideal. Here you can look down on Washington Street with the telephoto lens compressing the distance between St. Michaels, Grace Community and Old North Church.

In case you missed yesterday’s announcement, I started my annual Black Friday sale early and am having a Thanksgiving week with 25% off every calendar, book and print. Enter code BF2020 at checkout to receive the discount and free shipping.  Sale ends 11/30.
