This evening, the USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel still afloat, hosted guests to observe evening colors and Christmas tree lighting. It was a unique opportunity to get to know the vessel and the men and women who serve on her better. #ussconstitution
My wife and so spend a lot of time in Lowell in the summer. They have a great concert series. But until I started working in Lowell three years ago, I didn’t go into the city at Christmas time. I didn’t know what I was missing. They have some beautiful holiday lights. This is one of my favorite displays. These lights tower over the mills and really add something to the city and the season.
My wife and I took a short vacation in August to Old Saybrook, CT. Near the mouth of the Connecticut River is this railroad bridge. I made the first image at sunset on our way to dinner (image below). The next morning, I awoke early knowing the light would be different at that time. I was rewarded with the image above.
Let’s get this image on the blog before the end of November. This looks very different from what you would see in the summer. These are all working boats. People earn their living from them. In the summer, there are pleasure boats and a ferry that goes to Star Island. Also missing in November are the docks. They are pulled from the water and stacked in the parking lot until next season.
