TOUR HIGHLIGHTS: Night Photography * Historic Monuments * Cemetery * Light Painting * Architecture
TOUR DESCRIPTION: This is the oldest town and cemetery in the US, dating back to the early 1600s.
For this private tour we will meet at blue hour/beginning of civil twilight in the tiny square where there are two old churches, in Plymouth. We'll walk through the historic section of Plymouth, stopping to shoot the old buildings, quaint alleys (some of them reputed to be haunted) and making our way to the harbor. At the harbor there will be the option to photograph Plymouth Rock, where the Pilgrims are reported to have first landed, and the statue of Massasoit, an important Native american of that time.
We will then make our way back to the square to go into the Old Burying Ground, a cemetery established by the Pilgrims in the 17th century. This place offers great opportunities for light painting, and lovely views of Plymouth and the harbor.
