Ansel Adams, Georgia O’Keeffe and many other painters and photographers loved to go to Taos, New Mexico for one particular subject: the Rancho de Taos Church.

Andrew Wyeth painted about 1,000 studies of the farmhouse at Kuerner’s, his neighbor’s property in Pennsylvania.  Here is a link  we posted about that subject  Wyeth at Kuerners.  The Wyeth article continues to interest strangers  since many still visit BF to look at that piece.

Harry Callahan was famous for his nude photographs, but he photographed only one woman—–his  model and muse: wife Eleanor.

My point is that artists tend to revisit sites and subjects that fascinate and inspire them.

One place that often gets my attention is the Faith Baptist Church on Wickapecko Drive in Ocean Township near the A. Park border.  I drive by it almost daily, but for one year I did not photograph it because a Mercedes parked along the side of the church spoiled the inspiration.  But now it is very beautiful in autumn.  There is something moving  about that church, and I find it as inspirational in its own way as Chartres or Notre Dame.

In high school my friends and I went to Seaside Heights in the summer.  We knew that we could find girls and great music in Jersey Shore bars such as the Chatterbox and the place in my photo above.  But alas, we weren’t old enough.

However, 3 of us had a band, and we played in the Red Rail Restaurant/Bar in Lavalette.  We got a cabaret license to let us play at the Red Rail—but no alcohol for us. It was a very adult clientele who wanted fox trots and jittter-bugs.  They were like our parents.  And there were some folks sitting at the bar staring at us and requesting songs like “Fascination,” a waltz.

No hard-core rock and roll there, and all the girls in their summer clothes were elsewhere.

We had an apartment over a garage, and we sometimes met girls after work at about midnight on the Seaside boards where there were some who couldn’t get into the bars either.  When they heard that we were in a band, we……well, let’s say a little celebrity goes a long way.

Last year, walking our grandson on the boards in Seaside, the sight of this place brought back some of my own American Graffiti moments.
