I had a photography teacher who, in a course called “Finding Your Visual Voice,” told the class that if you look through your finder and see an image that you have done before, just walk away and find something else.   But he was wrong.  Many artists paint or photograph the same scene or model over and over again, because it is never the same.

There are certain places I like to photograph in all seasons, all year.  One is the Faith Baptist Church on Wickipecko Road.  For the last year there was a car parked in the lot, and it spoiled the view for me, but now the car is gone, and I look at that place every day to see if it feels just right for a photograph.

Another such  place is the Deal Lake branch, also on Wickipecko Road where Ocean Township and Asbury Park meet.  It is especially beautiful in the fall.  Here are two views from two days ago, one above and one below.

Magnolias in bloom.  Paul Goldfinger video.  Watch it carefully and play the music as you watch.  Hit the music button first and then hit the video button.

This Spring Lake home is on Morris Avenue, near that beautiful downtown.  Spring Lake is a real town, with no mega events, no parking issues, and a government that represents the citizens.

“Hi Paul…
Funny, I left the house at 5 a.m. to drive up to Sandy Hook to shoot the lighthouse today before the sun came up. I wanted the the lighthouse to be lit, so it had to be an early visit.

“Then later today I looked at the Blogfinger header photo, and if I am not mistaken, that would be the houses on the bay at Fort Hancock at the tip of Sandy Hook.

“Hopefully, that is the last vestiges of snow for us this year in the foreground! Enjoy.”

AMY WINEHOUSE:   (“Our Day Will Come” was a hit in 1963 with Ruby and the Romantics.  It is now part of the first Amy Winehouse posthumous album  Lioness: Hidden Treasures.)  

This song is a theme for Bob Bowné´s lovely interpretation of the Sandy Hook lighthouse.  Congratulations  Bob and thanks for sending us this gorgeous image.—-PG
