We took advantage of the 50-degree weather (because compared to what it had been, 50 degrees is positively balmy) on Sunday and trekked off to the Jersey shore. We landed about an hour and 15 minutes from home in Ocean Grove, a Victorian beach town we’d visited once before. We spent time on the beach, […]Read More: My camera’s last hurrah?

These are some of my favorite shots from […]Read More: 730 Feet: a retrospective
I was struck yesterday by the small ways in which I’ve changed since I began blogging more regularly.
