Today I met up on the Asbury Park Boardwalk with a group of photogs. Some are work friends and the rest were strangers. The walk was organized by Scott Wynden Kivowitz – who until today I’ve only “known” on-line and Daryl Meek. My friend and I drove down together. We got lost and ended up in Rumson but we enjoyed the scenic route – lined with expensive shore homes – to Asbury Avenue.

The windy air was crisp but cool. We caught up with the larger group about a quarter of the way down the boardwalk.

As we walked along I saw this elderly woman sitting with her aide. I was reluctant at first but my desire to get the shot over came my anxiety. I walked over, introduced myself and asked her permission to take her photograph. She had an interesting story to tell. She was born in Jersey City but moved to Asbury Park with her family when she was just two years old. She’s now 94 years old. She’s becoming to this very boardwalk almost her entire life. Imagine the stories she could tell about what the boardwalk was like long ago and how much it has changed. I regret I forgot her name.

My friend Chris, Prasanna and I had a great time chatting out our photography wish list. We added a fourth person, [John Carig](John Craig) to our smaller group. We talked about our families – we all have kids are varying age groups – before heading into the mall for a bite.

The iPhone Camera+ (with Clarity filter applied) can produce some very good images. The key is good light. We had a cloudy early morning sky but the sun was shining through.

Before we left we stopped at Sully’s for a hot latte. They have an extensive menu and many items are named after local landmarks. I liked the description of “The Boss” sandwich but our hostess let me know that he eats mostly vegetarian these days.
