Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot - Fences And What's Behind Them

I've never participated in Carly's Monday Photo Shoot before, but thought I'd give it a's my fence. It's located in one of my favorite places to shoot, so what lies beyond the fence is the wealth of nature and beauty that is Sandy Hook National Park.

Blogger Community Photo Challenge - CHANGE!

 complete the move to my new home, I've found some images that say change...but unlike our move here, the changes depicted in my images aren't least not from an aesthetic point of view.

First, here's the challenge: "Our first challenge on our new blog is CHANGE, it was suggested by Rob. Vicki & I thought it was perfect for our move here".

This is a postcard showing how the hotel looked when it was a popular destination for vacationers:

My 'Change' is the demise of a great hotel, the Metropolitan. In it's heyday, this wonderful hotel was a gem of the Jersey Shore in Asbury Park. The images I've captured show the decay that resulted from years of neglect. Sadly, even that is now gone, as the hotel was demolished early this year. Sometimes progress demands a steep price.

Moving in...

Hi, welcome to my new 'home'! Hope you like it yourself to some wine and cheese and find a nice comfy chair and, as my relatives down south say, set awhile! I'm glad to see you made the trip over the bridge to this new and, hopefully, wonderful home that we've all found here. Be sure to check out the Bloggers Community Photo Challenge and participate if you're so inclined. Marie went to a lot of effort to pack up all our winning entries from our old home, load the truck, and unpacked them in our brand new Bloggers Community Photo Gallery, so be sure to check that one out, as well. All future challenge winners will be posted there, so it will continue to be the Best of the Best! Glad to see you. Enjoy your stay!
