On the same January morning in which I captured Mud Puddle, Arnould Gallery and Old Town House, I also decided to walk along Washington Street and stopped when I looked down State. The light dusting of snow (well before the more recent impressive snowfalls) had coated the roofs and sidewalks of these homes. That white coat only served to amplify the vibrant colors of the houses standing side by side along this historic street.

I stepped into the street to get the angle just right and made sure to include the tree branches breaking up the otherwise monotone sky. A fast enough shutter (1/250th of a second) helped freeze the snow falling to the ground and this moment of a winter morning in Marblehead.
