After reading Scott Kelby’s Understanding Exposure months ago, I’ve been patiently counting down the days until Summer arrives so I could go down to the boardwalk and take pictures of all the amusement rides lit up. I guess Phriend had the same thought in mind because when she realized she had a few free hours last night, taking pictures on the boardwalk was the first thing that came to her mind. We got to the boardwalk just as the sun was setting, and to our disappointment, the rides were not operational yet. Not to worry- we always joke we could always find something to take a picture of- so we walked the boards, “interacted” with the colorful locals (that’s just my nice way of saying “avoided the drunken teenagers”…), practiced “panning” on the carousel and walked around the arcades.
As we were leaving, I was drawn to the dark, desolate, closed amusement area and took a bunch of pictures- a stark contrast to what it’ll look like in a few weeks!
