beach


I went for a walk (on a flock) on a flock of birds, and it felt like a trillion herds

Everyone loves a good sunset!

Some people do not love a good flock of seagulls, but y’know, it’s their loss.

The fishing pier is still there when it's gloomy out. I have proof!

This is the Ocean Grove fishing pier.

(I love it when a photo is really juicy right out of the camera. Like this. Bam.)

(Well. I did straighten it and nudge the white point a little, but that’s it, I swear.)

Playin' with a dog in good ol' Ocean Grove

Some people like to take their dogs out on lonely beaches to give ’em some exercise. (It’s more difficult to do this when there are people laying about everywhere.)

Ahhh, the good old days of two weeks ago! It was still chilly then.

Fiddler crab!

Hello fiddler crab!

(He was on the bike path at Sandy Hook. Like Mister Snake, I almost skated over this guy, too.)

The muralist at work!

In July 2010, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a muralist putting the finishing touches on a new mural by the Asbury Park casino.

I think I have photos of the exact wall before it was painted, but I’ll need to find them and re-upload them; I had all my black-and-white photos stored on Zooomr, which permanently went kaput without giving any warning.

Ahhhhh summer.

Are you jonesing for warmer weather yet? I am. Here’s Ocean Grove in June.

(Same view as the one I posted last week, actually. I can’t help it; if I’m on the Ocean Grove pier, and I have my camera, I need to take a photo.)

Asbury Park Casino, fall 2011

Every time I go back to Asbury Park, the casino looks different. Above is how the Ocean Grove side of the casino looked in 2011…

Asbury Park Casino, summer 2007

…but THIS is how it looked four years ago, in 2007.

I originally posted that bottom photo here, and mentioned that there were some plans to recreate the beach side of the Casino.

Thus far, this has not happened.

Here’s what the ocean-side of the Casino looked like in early 2007 (click the photo for a link to its original post):

…and here’s what it looked like in late 2011:

It’s interesting to watch this stuff happen over time.
