With a busy schedule to adhere to that would begin at 9 am I set off early in the morning with no particular destination in mind to take a photograph or two knowing that I would not be able to post it until later in the afternoon. After procuring a cup of coffee on Market Space I decided to take a stroll up Pinkney Street in the Historic District while letting my eye wander about along the way.

Passing by the c1723 Shiplap House I almost immediately took note of the absence of parked vehicles along its west side parking lot and decided to accept a long standing challenge of taking a photograph of the building’s front while at the same time minimizing its unsightly visual clutter. What I mean by that is for anyone who has made their way up Pinkney Street the noticeable presence of utility poles and wires decapitating if you would the building’s facade makes a front facing photograph of this Annapolis landmark difficult to say the least.

Having made my way back and forth along the southwest street side of the building I was finally able to settle into a location from which to take today’s photograph while minimizing those afore mentioned visual distractions. With a few adjustments afterwards while also having accepted the fact that this left to right perspective was the only viable location from which to take a photograph from I pressed the shutter release a couple of times and then proceeded about my way.

Later as I was preparing to upload those two photographs from the camera as it neared 3 pm this afternoon I was quite curious as to just how they were going to turnout for I have been disappointed many times over the years attempting to do the same thing. So with a sunny sky visible outside my studio window I experienced a certain sense of relief when this photograph came to be displayed on my computer screen.

While I will always want to be able to take a better photograph of the Shiplap House, such as under better lighting conditions for example, I am fairly content with this one indeed.

Have a good day,
