The canal system in historic Lowell, MA is managed by the National Park Service, and is part of the Lowell National Historical Park. Its origins go back to about 1821 or so, when the canal system was technically part of East Chelmsford. Clearly the city of Lowell made a beautiful little purchase.
This wedding party along the canal, en route to the banks of the canal, was too fun to resist. They were apparently running behind, as a photographer was already set and ready to go. Lucky the FE2 was choosing some fast shutter speeds while in Aperture Priority-
The remainder of the roll was shot using the 80-200mm Zoom Nikkor. But the 50 proved a great choice for these frames. Results from the zoom to come.
NOTE: Regretfully, I did not make it to this year’s Lowell Folk Festival, which is usually photography heaven. I hope to capture some of the spirit and flavor of this beautiful city, in this entry, and the ones to come.
