Photographer's Note

As night fell over the small Chesapeake Bay city of Annapolis, Maryland, these college students decided to venture out onto an awning for a little nighttime concert. With the people in the ice cream shop below and the mix of lights, it was an irresistible shot.

What you don't see here is the stifling heat; much of the eastern US is in the middle of a blistering heat wave, and Annapolis - already in a hot and humid area - was very uncomfortable during the day. As soon as night started to fall, more people emerged; though it was still very hot and stuffy, it was at least slight relief.

Shot handheld from across the street at 1/15 shutter, 800 ISO.
