Early 20th Century Art Deco Architecture in Boston HIstoric District of Aberdeen in Brighton Neighborhood, Daytime Long Exposure
This is my favorite building in my neighborhood and I think is the centerpiece of what is known as the Aberdeen historic district of Boston. I have posted a couple different angles before, but I have always wanted to nail a front on facade, tried a couple times over the years. There were perfect clouds last weekend while a storm was clearing out, so I took advantage and went right to this building for unfinished business, and I figured the historic snow levels would help me get this facade without cars in the frame. There was a benefit from a huge snow bank that went well into the street, as I was able to set up on the bank and get an angle that normally I would have to set up well into the street for. It was really tough, I had to wait out a few delivery people that parked directly in front of the building and a couple people unloading groceries etc. Between that and waiting for the right clouds it took me well over an hour to get this image, luckily I got this single exposure with great clouds and no cars before the clouds disappeared.
