there's a lot going on here that that sort of wants an narrative but there clearly isn't one - just the way it is - I like that

Hi Graham - Thanks! Well, there are actually a few narratives to go along with this shot, but none really explain the image of the man crossing the plaza! The spot is in the heart of the early days of the US - and there's pretty literally a story on every corner. Might also be better named 'The Long Shadow of the Future' too!

Thanks Mats! It was a warm sunny day in winter - those long shadows made it perfect!

Thanks very much for the like and the vote Teresa - Cheers from the States :)

Hi, Kamalyn. The Google image shows this just a few yards from the City Tavern. Surely America's entire future was laid out here. Very nice picture with the shadows. Voted. Guy

kamalyn on March 28, 2011

Hi Geezer - You've got it! City Tavern is just behind me on the left. There's more American History within a stone's throw of where I was standing for this than I've ever been around - and I grew up near Lexington and Concord!

i didn't comment on this before and I should have. its very good. very subtle. i would vote, but too late!

kamalyn on May 22, 2011

Hi larry, Thanks for the thought! The light that afternoon was great, and for this spring, just having sun and afternoon light fairly rare. The huge irony in this shot is that I was blindly walking around on my first visit to the city, but its on a route that has become very frequent and familiar. I guess its time for a nice summer shot of the area.
