Pickering House in the Snow
Day 2: January 2, 2010
Today was a great day for taking pictures — there was enough snow to be interesting, but not enough to make driving difficult. I always think snow is a good excuse for taking new pictures of places I’ve photographed before. I lived in this neighborhood when I was in my early twenties, and I used to spend a lot of time alone in the Broad Street Cemetery across the street, studying the old gravestones. I used to stop and look at the Pickering House every time I passed by, and try to imagine living there, wearing a long, rustling dress, carrying a candle through the halls and being named Charity or Hepzibah.
