Those things!

I have no idea what these things are called! They’re too small for cattails, they’re too heady for grass, but they’re all over the place in the summer! And they make a pretty photo. That’s what REALLY matters.



I took this yesterday! That’s a lie, it’s totally January in New Jersey. But remember when…?


This one time, in December 2008, I almost skated over a snake. It looked like a twig!

Luckily, my camera turned on quickly enough for me to snap a photo of it. Gotcha!

Mad seagull!

I don’t live in Monmouth County anymore, but my parents do, and I visit them, and sometimes there are nifty things around here to photograph. So I’m going to add a couple unofficial not-updates (since MCDP is very clearly “no longer updating”). 🙂

After my last post (August 17, 2008), I moved to Chicago for two years, and then back to north Jersey. I’m still there, and I’ve been running New Providence Daily Photo for a year and a half (welllll… a little over a year). It’s sort of the bastard stepsister of Monmouth County Daily Photo.

There’s nothing like NOT living on the shore to make you appreciate it!

Is MCDP still on your RSS feed? Do you still even have an RSS feed? If so, how are you doing?


Wild raspberries in Allaire State Park.

Unless they’re mulberries.

But I’m pretty sure they’re closer to raspberries.


Another unidentified flower! I really don’t know my wildflowers, do I?

Edit: Careful reader USelaine has identified it as a Gaillardia, or Blanket Flower. Thanks!

(Found in Thompson Park, Lincroft, NJ)


Why did the geese cross the road?

…well, wouldn’t you want to hang out with your friends?
