Marching to the Beat on State Street

Another incredible Marblehead Christmas Walk is in the books and, as has been the case for the past few years, I set up along State Street to capture Glover's Regiment leading the annual parade.  This year I decided to bring along a single 35mm lens and set it to its widest aperture in the hopes of focusing on just one part of the parade.  As luck would have it, the drummer was on my side of the street and I captured this image of him drumming while the rest of the regiment was marching to the beat on State Street.

As luck would have it, [...]

Marblehead Christmas Walk – Santa Waves to the Gathering Crowd

The final image seemed to capture what is so special about Marblehead and this time of year - a perfect mix of holiday and tradition carried through in the present [...]

Marblehead Christmas Walk – Marching up State Street

The annual Marblehead Christmas walk took place this weekend and, between the parade and Glover's regiment re-enactment of the crossing of the Delaware, I ended up with five images I wanted to share with you.  So all of this week will feature images from this year's Marblehead Christmas walk festivities. First up is this image of Glover's regiment marching up State Street.  I forgot that the fire department leads the parade in one of their trucks and therefore had to make a last minute change in my plans to capture Glover's regiment marching up State Street.  I quickly crossed the street and took [...]
