“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

This month every photo is from right here at the Jersey Shore. A medley of pics from every season ... with various styles and editing.  The photo at the top of the blog is a shot done on "Barnegat Bay". The photo above is "Sunrise in Toms River"  I've said it before it is a great part of my job, seeing a beautiful sunrise in the morning .... a perfect perk!

Downtown Barnegat and a place we grew up visiting as kids the "Hurricane House" an old fashioned ice cream parlor with wooden booths and a soda bar and fountain, oh and great egg creams!

Found this creek in Ocean County during an afternoon commute. I decided to use a touch of editing to give this photo some "grain" scratching it up a bit ... almost like if you were in a cabin looking thru a screen door during a camping trip ....

I was hiking when I snapped this shot. It just struck me how twisted the woods looked here. This was after Hurricane Sandy .... water, rain and wind just turned the woods upside down ....

A frozen Toms River .... If you look hard you might see Townsquare Towers ....

Believe it or not .... fungus makes a great subject. Over the years I've found numerous subjects in nature and all have different and distinct shapes and colors, this one had a "red" that jumped out ...

"Windows 2016" It's a photo I found inside a photo. Originally I took a pic of a fishing hut, but when I  looked closer I saw the window (sunset) inside the window .... enjoy the view.
