Looking East On Thames St. From Broadway

Photography by David Robert Crews

I took about 6 or 8 shots of this scene. I think that the stuffed scarecrow character was for the Fells Point Preservation Society booth. I wish we could read the yellow button, but due to limitations of the camera I had to have the button out of focus in order to have the people in the background in focus. When I was shooting this photo, I knew that one day (but not yet) I would be able to work with Adobe Photoshop where I could take elements of one photo and place them on another. So I shot one photo with the yellow button in focus, and about 5 photos with the background in focus. This way, someday, I can make a version of this photo with the in focus yellow button placed onto the shot you see above that has the crowd in focus.
