This has been a really fun project so far. This wonderful old building, which is situated along the Lewes Canal in Lewes Delaware is rich with history and could tell a few hair-raising stories of storms and rescues.
It is obviously a beloved landmark, yet still shows a little weathering from the years of wind and water. It certainly represents well the rich history of Lewes and its people.
After completing 8 studies of this building, I have settled on this view, as I thought it was important to show the rowboat tucked safely alongside the building.
I walked around this building at 7:45 am, when the light was diffusing through the clouds yet still lingered along the horizon with the old familiar orange glow reflecting off of everything for a few more minutes. This is such a great time of day to capture images and color, and the coffee always seems to taste the best this time of day too. - A
