IS THE END NEAR??? For Summer???
August 30, 2018 • Leave a Comment
Yes, the calendar says August is almost over and September is near. The days are getting shorter and sunset is earlier every day. College kids are back in school, as are many high school students! Does this mean that Summer is over?? How can that be??
Fear not. By some measures, the summer 2018 is indeed nearing its end (See above). By other measures, such as the weather, it sure feels like the dog days of August.
For us residents of the Jersey Shore, however, our summer, or local's summer, is just about to begin. It starts the day after Labor Day and continues to about Columbus Day. The weather is nicer, there are no crowds at the beaches and restaurants, and quiet slowly returns to the area.
For photographers, this extended summer is a godsend. There is still plenty to shoot and for me, lots more sailboat races to shoot and enjoy. For the photographers who exhibit their work at shows, as do I, this is a busy time of the year--there are lots of shows and harvestfests and its not as hard to spend 8 hours standing in the sun.
Which reminds me--I will be participating in two outside shows in the coming weeks. The first will be the Downtown Toms River Art Stroll, on Thursday, September 6th, from 5 to 7 pm. The forecast is for nice weather and its a good opportunity to see my work and the work of many other talented artists in all media. The other event will be Sailfest, which will be held in historic Island Heights on Saturday, September 8th, from 10 to 5 PM. This is a day-long extravaganza of crafts, art and food, by the beautiful Toms River. I will be in space 23--right in front of the Island Heights Yacht Club. Please stop by and say hello!! If you do and mention that you read about it here, I will give you a 15% discount on any item of item you purchase. This discount is for return customers as well!
I will also be participating in several exciting gallery shows in the coming weeks as well. I will talk about them to the next blog!
PS: Allow me to thank everyone who stopped by and reviewed my revised website. It was a lot of work, but worth it, because it will permit me to show you more great images, at competitive prices!! You are totally awesome! If you have not done so, please specially check out the new galleries, including "Just Captured...," New York," and Trenton." It will be worth you time.
