The OG summer tents are sought after by painters, photographers, tourists, renters, historians, strollers, bikers,  and others. Our tents are unique.   From a photographer’s point of view, we look for new ways of seeing the tents;  we try to be creative with lighting and composition.  It’s not easy to come up with something different, but that is what we require at this Ocean Grove website where photography is used more than words to describe our town.

When I submitted a “plain vanilla” portrait of the tents for the book “New Jersey 24/7” I was surprised that the image was one of the winners, but then I realized that those of us who live here are a bit jaded, like New Yorkers who take the Empire State Building for granted.

But for you OG photographers, Blogfinger will continue looking for fresh ways of seeing our historic and beautiful tents.

BLOSSOM DEARIE  “It Might as well be Spring”  (performed in French)

 

“I’m as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
I’m as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven’t seen a crocus or a rosebud
Or a robin on the wing”

These tents are the most photographed of any structures in town.  They captivate visitors who love to hear the story of the tents. They are amazed that the tents are still in use and that you have to wait for years to rent one.

Photographing them is a challenge if you want something unique other than the tired snapshots that people acquire with their phones.  Nevertheless, those photos are the ones that get disseminated all over the world.  They are patriotic images because so many tenters fly the American flag.
