Justine's - Justine’s Ice Cream Parlor has been the go-to place for ice cream in St. Michaels, MD for a generation. The famous wall of shakes has amazing sounding names like “Peanut Butter Covered Pretzel”, “Mud Slide”, “Brown Cow”, and “Chocolate Skippy”. Walking back from a sunrise shoot at St. Michaels Harbor and the Maritime Museum I was struck by the way the morning light illuminated the store front and provided just a hint of the interior and the magical treats that will be available later in the day. This same shot at noon would have neither the magic nor the mystery, proving once again why photographers call the hour before and after sunrise or sunset the “Golden Hour”. This is "Justine’s”.
