It was late summer in 2016 when I found myself traveling to New England for my brothers wedding. It was a beautiful seaside wedding in the quant harbour town of Newport Rhode Island. But we had a few days to spend in Boston prior to the wedding .
While the family was still asleep I snuck out with my camera gear for a dawn shoot along the Boston waterfront. I was carrying just my Leica X with its fixed 35mm equivalent f1.7 lens.
The Sun was just beginning to rise as I reached the harbour. It was a clear morning and the sun had an intense orange glow while it hung at the horizon. I shot both in colour first to capture the intense colours.
As the sun rose higher creating more contrast between the highlights reflecting of the water and the shadows created by the boats in the harbour I shifted to shooting in Monochrome to capture the drama created by the light.
