A day at the shore in late August. It’s been a helluva year.
Bucky Pizzarelli turned 90 this past January. Here he is with his Quartet at this year’s Morristown (NJ) Jazz and Blues Fest in the midst of a two hour gig on a hot and humid afternoon. Nothing was lost in the process as he and his mates put on their usual excellent presentation of the American Song Book. We’re all looking forward to next year for another masterful performance Bucky!

Taken on June 21, 2013, this is a shot of Aquatic Park Pier with the Marin County highlands across San Francisco Bay in the background. I reprocessed the original image with the relatively new Dehaze feature and tweeked Highlights to bring out the definition and color of the highlands.

Happy Fourth to all.
The Casino, at the south end of the Asbury Park Boardwalk, was built in the 1920’s when the city was at the peak of its popularity as a tourist destination. During this era the Convention Center, Paramount Theatre, several Bath Houses and the Heating Plant were also built in the same Beaux Arts style. The area went through a significant downturn over the years since, but a major redevelopment is underway to rebuild the city and its fabulous beachfront. Here’s a small sample of work in process.
