Late Afternoon at the Fairmount Water Works

Yesterday I finally made it to the Fairmount Water Works, which is much closer to Center City than I ever realized. It’s only a very short walk past the Museum of Art when you’re following the path by the Schuylkill River.

With my husband and his parents who are visiting this weekend, I convinced everyone to go for a walk at the golden hour. Here are a couple of photos from the walk.

I wasn’t the only person walking around with a dSLR, and in fact, I had the smallest camera and definitely the smallest lens out there. We walked out on the gazebo and found several photographers with big cameras and big lenses and fancy filters all set up on tripods. I definitely won’t feel shy about going back there and bringing my tripod.

It was a gorgeous walk, but slightly warm and there was high traffic on the pathway with lots of other walkers, runners, and bikers. I’ve been running along the path in the morning, and I have to say it is so much less crowded then and much more enjoyable! (But let’s keep that a secret between me and well, all of you. I wouldn’t want the path to get too crowded!)
