This image of the Pearl Street side of the Custom House is composed of 10 individual shots taken at 280mm. I took these shots just after dawn from a garage across the street. Watching the shadows move across Pearl, I was reminded of Paul Strand's iconic image, Wall Street. My image is very date specific, because even a month later, when the sun shines down Pearl Street it is higher in the sky so the shadows are smaller.
