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.

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.)


Who said nobody goes to the Jersey shore in January? That’s when the locals can finally enjoy an uncrowded beach!

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?


A lifeboat. With teeth.

I know when I’m drowning, flailing my arms in the water and terrified for my life, that’s EXACTLY what I want to see coming my way–SHARP POINTY TEETH.

I am (still) in North Carolina for a few days, so I will A) be relying on “automatic posting,” and B) will be unavailable for comments.


I’m probably ripping off John Maslowski, but y’know, he’s not the only person who can photograph the underside of a pier. Take that.

I live maybe 2 miles–as the crow flies–from the Jersey shore, and it takes about 20 minutes to drive to Ocean Grove, which is a little further south. (About 8 of those minutes are spent toodling along at 25-30 MPH ‘cos that’s the speed limit in touristy areas, and there are speed traps set up all over the place). So really, I ought to feature the beach more often.

Not that I will, but I should.
