LIFE’S A BEACH

On yet another chilly, rainy, grey day here in the northeastern United States, I remember beaches. Soft sand, sun, surf, andย hot dogs with just a hint of grit.

BEACH – THE DAILY POST

  1. Love that old “Nathan’s” signage — within the past few weeks I have discovered that I can buy “Nathan’s” hot dogs at our local grocery. Yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Based upon our recent weather, we, New Englanders, need to reach way back into the recesses of our memories to conjure up sun, heat, warmth, and hot sand. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you. They are easy … if you get up VERY early in the morning. Sunrise is the best time for shooting beaches because there are very few people around and with a little luck, the sunrise will greet you.

      • I agree. This one time when I was on a vacation, I and my friends woke up around 4am to go to the beach and catch the sunrise. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in my life. An incredible experience. I still look at all the amazing pictures we took that day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you. I often describe my photography as “postcard pictures.” Pretty pictures are easy for me. My challenge is always to try and step a bit away from merely pretty and try to say something more. But beaches and sunrises? Pretty. Just lovely.

  9. here in Napier or Hastings going to the beach normally means Ahuriri, where there is an ice cream shop, and a hot chicken & fries shop tacked on. The chicken is grilled over hot lava stones. Tastes devine and their fries are superb. Nothing like eating them watching beach life. Now it is only busy at the weekends and public holidays when the weather is good. Nice photos

    • Thanks! I think everything tastes better at the beach. Nathan’s has been THE place to eat at Coney Island for a hundred years. Now you can buy their stuff in grocery stores. But it tastes better there. Much better. Something about the salty air ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Lovely photos! This week has been warm and sunny here. Temperatures in the mid teens even!

    • We’ve got one more week of this, then it’ll probably go directly to summer. Which is not unusual around here. We have a long, wet mud season … then suddenly, everything blooms and the next day, you need the air conditioning. I think it’s going to be that kind of year.

  11. i can only remember them in black and white as the only photos I have from the english summer holidays by the sea are in black and white. You have some really wonderful shots here. I love those boardwalks, they are so American film style.

    • I spent a few months in England, Wales, and Cornwall … and some time in Ireland, too. I think the nicest of the beaches were in Cornwall. Most of your shoreline is kind of like New England. Rocky. One of the reasons Cape Cod is so popular is because it’s one of the few places in the region with soft sand beaches. But the water is still COLD. Very cold. By the time it warms up, the summer is over.

      That particular boardwalk in Coney Island. It is used in a lot of movies. It’s a classic, elegant — and wide (making it easy to use for shooting film) — boardwalk. Dates originally from the mid 1800s. It’s nice that it’s still there. Most of them are gone.
