To start with a look back…

I took these photos on March 22, 2012, my 30th birthday. It was an unseasonably warm day for March in NY, with highs in upper 70s. Its so rare that I have a warm birthday, that at the last minute I took the day off and decided to have a NYC beach adventure. I hoped to put my toes in the water, walk on the sand and enjoy a little sun.

When I arrived in Brighton Beach I was disappointed to find that it was shrouded in a thick fog. I thought that I would quickly put my toes in the water since I had come all that way, but as I started to walk on the beach I began to enjoy the magical other worldliness of the fog. It was so thick that when I was at the waterfront, I couldn’t see the boardwalk or any of its landmarks.
Through the gloom, I walked from Brighton Beach to Coney Island and discovered an eerie wonderland in the mist.  Enjoy!
