Had the opportunity last month to go on some photowalks. As the spring weather in New England has been far from ideal, B&W was a great option. Got my hands on some Fuji FP-100B, my new “go-to” B&W film. These were taken with the Polaroid 230. Leominster is a little known city, adjacent to Fitchburg, MA. It is the hometown of literary legend Robert Cormier, author of “The Chocolate War”, and “I Am The Cheese”. A Fitchburg State alum, Cormier is still read widely in schools. Leominster is also known as the birthplace of the Foster Grant Company (yes, the sunglasses), and as the plastics capital of America. If you have pink flamingos on your lawn, chances are they were made here. It is also where Johnny Appleseed became famous.
The above is on Monument Square in Leominster.
I am not even going to attempt to write about this beautiful spot in Concord, where the American Revolutionary War had its start. Maybe the Polaroids speak for themselves.
