Morning sun over Domino Sugar Factory, Inner Harbor, Harbor Point, and Sandlot in Baltimore, Maryland
I find the Domino Sugar Factory a fascinating architectural and historical landmark in Baltimore. But I don’t often photograph it simply because it’s been photographed to death already. However, I still keep an eye out for unique compositions that include the factory, and have attempted to create one here. Being the brightest element in the scene, the morning sun captures the viewer’s attention first. Then, the eye follows the rays of light down through the clouds to rest on the Sand Lot in Harbor Point, cranes, and factory buildings below. As a result, the factory isn’t the main subject, but simply a contributor to the scene. However, its presence defines the sense of place as being unequivocally Baltimore.
