I love photography as a hobby and I enjoy sharing my photos, many from right here at the Jersey Shore. I hope you enjoy taking some time to relax as I share my visions with you ~ Shawn Michaels
The Cape May Lighthouse was built in 1859 under the supervision of U.S. Army engineer William F. Raynolds, was automated in 1946, and continues operation to this day. It stands 157 feet tall.
Cape May Lighthouse …. Always a nice scenic ride south to exit 0 . If you get a chance make a stop off at the national park and spend a few hours, lots to see and perfect in the early morning or late afternoon.
At 171 feet it is the tallest lighthouse in the state of New Jersey and is the third-tallest masonry lighthouse in the United States. Construction began in 1854, with the light first lit on January 15, 1857.
If you travel to Atlantic City you must hit the north end and check out the Absecon Lighthouse.
Sunrise in Seaside Park. We have seen a variety of different looks, all breath taking. Sometimes we forget just how beautiful it is right here at home at the Jersey Shore, take a few minutes this Summer to soak it in.
During a recent trip to New York City I felt the need to snap a photo of the Ed Sullivan Theatre, home to the Late Show with David Letterman. Letterman was a big part of our late nights at College back in the 80’s and now that his run is coming to an end I wanted something to remind me of the days of Top 10, Stupid Human Tricks and Larry “Bud” Melman. Thanks Dave and Paul …

Pebbles have color and texture and may have traveled far to make just one picture come together … kinda neat.
