A visual chronicle of suburban NJ
Fireworks display from July 5th. Bradley Beach and Asbury Park ended up doing their fireworks on the same night! My mother and I headed down to the Ocean Grove fishing pier (what’s left of it) to watch the Bradley fireworks at 9:00, and then turned around to watch the Asbury fireworks at 9:30. I never get tired of photographing explosives!
I don’t feel like/ have time to do a lot of editing, so I’m just gonna crop and resize and post a whole bunch of my favorites. (I won’t even STRAIGHTEN them. Yeah I KNOW. The AUDACITY, the ARROGANCE.)
Oh hey, P.S., I have an Instagram account, which is where I’m uploading casual snapshots these days. Follow me there for updates more often than once a year! (Side note: I have wayyyy too much fun with filters.)
Taken after a heavy thunderstorm last week. It was rainbowing for a solid 10 minutes, right at dusk! So pretty! And finally, finally, finally, I put my polarizing filter to good use!! #nerd
I’m not exactly out of retirement, but the summer sky over New Jersey has been doing some interesting things this week, and I’m sharing.
I caught my first lightning strike last night! I’m very excited!
And I caught a second bolt, too! Whoaaaa.
That’s it. I’m done. I can sell my camera now.
(That’s a joke.) (But “photograph lightning” has been on my bucket list for a few years. Now I just need some star trails and I’ll REALLY be all set.)
With the constant improvements in social media, I think this photoblog is no longer relevant.
When I took a hiatus for most of March, I hoped I’d return with fresh eyes, but I haven’t. Photoblogging has been a thorn in my side for the past 6+ months.
With this post, I am freeing myself from the shackles of daily posting. I’m not ending the blog, but I’ll post less often.
…This probably didn’t require a formal statement, but I don’t like to bail on commitments I’ve made without an excuse.
Thank you for your patience.
If you happened to drive through shore towns during May, you might’ve noticed crazy pink lines down the middle of the road.
“Paint the town Pink” is “an annual community-wide effort to raise awareness of the importance of annual mammography.”
(Breast cancer awareness in May, basically.)
It is pretty attention-grabbing!
