I took over 425 photos in five days while in Wildwood last week. Maybe that's not a lot, maybe that's outrageous. All I know is, it's taking me forever to go through them and edit so I thought I would post just my 'really likes' (aren't you lucky...LOL) in several installments. I think it's in my best interest to categorize them because, if I don't, I'll go nuts trying to determine what I did and did not post.
Hope I don't bore you and, if I do, wait for the next post and maybe you'll see something you like. As for me, I love the Jersey shore and only wish I had more time to shoot 425 more photos!
The Big Wheel...my favorite subject/ride on the pier. And this year it featured an entirely new light show. I tried shooting from as many different angles as possible but, with the crowds, it was impossible. The one big thing I was thrilled about was actually riding it. Last year I just watched but this year the line was a little 'forgiving' and the wait was bearable.
Come ride The Big Wheel with me! (click on the photos to enlarge)

The Carousel...Carousels are like works of arts. No two are alike. They can be done in primary colors or muted pastels. They can be Victorian or more modern and feature a variety of different themes. The one here is definitely in line with its surroundings...the ocean. Hope you enjoy some details...
Along with the crowds, the lighting conditions were a real challenge. I resorted to auto mode more than I care to admit and I cringe from the noise caused by high ISOs...I guess I'll just have to go back to practice! Well, until next time, be safe and happy and don't pass up a chance to ride the Big Wheel. I'll meet you at the entrance to the pier. Maybe we can win a big monkey!
