Poodle Skirts And Tail Fins- Summer Stroll 2012, Leominster, MA

The look and feel of Leominster, MA in the 50’s and the 60’s is recaptured each year by Summer Stroll. The entire downtown is closed off to traffic, and people can literally stroll the entire downtown. It is like one big block party, tons of kitschy fun and Americana. Vintage cars, and retro-style dancing are on display, as over 5000 visitors invade the area. This year, it took place on Saturday, June 23rd. Here are a few favorite shots from the day, Nikon F3HP, 50mm f/1.4 Ai Nikkor, and some Ilford FP4 Plus-

A slower shutter speed worked wonderfully here. Motion and sharpness.
