Shore Front Parkway, Rockaway Beach

Shore Front Parkway, Rockaway Beach

 

This is the last shot I took during my photowalk on the Rockaway Peninsula as I walked along Shore Parkway after I left the beach. There’s something about traffic lights and an empty road.

Last reminder that my first public gallery showing opens tomorrow.

Rockaway Beach Red Cross Field Units

Rockaway red Cross Mobile Units

 

think these are Red Cross offices, even though there’s no signage except for that white painted cross on the side of one of them.

I also do not know whether this section of boardwalk survived Sandy or was this one short section rebuilt first. As shown yesterday, boardwalk was completely swept away from nearly this entire, quite long section of the beach, and has not yet been rebuilt.

As a reminder,this Saturday my first public showing will be opening. Information is below. Also, a Polaroid of one of these structures taken from the side is also shown.

Rockaway Beach – Recovering From Sandy

Rockaway Beach - Missing Boardwalk February 2014

 

Day 3 of my week posting images from Rockaway Peninsula to announce that I will be showing different images from the peninsula in a showing at Harisch Galleries, starting this Saturday. This is a section of Rockaway Beach looking back towards land where a boardwalk once was and eventually will be again.

Jacob Riis Boardwalk and Beach House (Recovering from Sandy)

Jacob Riis Boardwalk and Beach House - February 2014

 

As I mentioned yesterday, some never-before-seen work of mine will be part of a show that opens this Saturday. The theme is to document, hopefully in a pleasingly artistic fashion, the damage and rebuilding on the Rockaway peninsula, which was slammed pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy. This week I am showing other photos from the peninsula that are not in the show.

This is the beach house at Jacob Riis park, which is beautiful building that still needs a fair amount of work.

Information on the show follows:

Jacob Riis Park (Recovering From Sandy) [And Hey - I'm In A Show!]

Jacob Riis Park (Recovering from Sandy)

All this week I will be featuring shots I took during a couple of outings to the Rockaway Peninsula last month. I went out there to get shots for a specific purpose. A frien who runs a photo studio has decided to run a gallery showing in the space, and invited me to participate:

The theme is to document, hopefully in a pleasingly artistic fashion, the damage and rebuilding on the peninsula, which was slammed pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy. I have already shown some shots I took while out on the peninsula during the past month, and this week will do the same. However, I have not shown and will not post any of the images from the gallery display here. If you want to see them you’ll have to go to the show, which opens this Saturday at 4pm.

Also, most of the images I have posted before today did not address the theme, but today’s image does. At the top of the post is a bench on the boardwalk at Jacob Riis Park, and you can see the sand and silt that has been deposited on the boardwalk but has not been removed yet.
