Tessa sent a post from Boston, where she is a college student:
I got up before sunrise today to go work on a film shoot about an hour away from school. These pictures are from a little bit after sunrise. In Boston, the sunlight doesn't really show itself until about an hour after the official sunrise because of all the tall buildings. Boston should have its own sunrise time: when the sunlight actually hits the city.
You can kind of see the line of shadow and light here as the sun is starting to hit the buildings.
Finally, I actually saw the sun when we got a little bit further out of the city towards the shooting location. This picture is looking through the dirty train window. Lovely.
By the time we got to the town where we would be shooting, the sun was basically risen, but it was still low enough in the sky to make nice, long shadows.
