Long Island 2


More photos from my New Year’s Day trip to Long Island. The picture above (and several others in this post) is unique because of the way the waves were carving a small wall into the beach sand…something I had not ever seen before.

This post is from a multi-post series and the ‘Like’ button is turned off. If you want to like the series and have not done so yet, please do so at the first post.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • Gosh, I am not sure how to describe it…on the south side towards the east, but an hour or so before getting as far as Montauk. That make sense?

  1. I am really surprised that you found a phone booth, years ago i went through the same scenario on the Oregon coast in Newport. I never did find one but found an old wall phone in a bar.. I can’t imagine trying to find one nowadays… Great pics by the way! Love the very first pic if the sand and waves. Amazing!

    • For the phone booth, I commiserate! As to the photo, thank you so much! In fact, that is the sort of photo I love taking…one where at first glance you have to puzzle out what you are looking at, so that it resolves itself slowly…but that it does resolve itself. Thank you again, that means a lot to me!

  2. My favorite is the photo of the path climbing up the sand dune. When I was a kid there was less need for preservation (fewer people tramping the dune grasses on the weekends). Walking along the ocean’s shore is where I found out I was a Biologist. Thank you for triggering some very happy memories. Now don’t forget to put on your Clark Kent glasses and take care of your own.

    • That is wonderful! I enjoyed the Long Island trip in and of itself…but seeing how much you are enjoying the photos only makes me happier and happier that I took them! 🙂

    • That is the western part, closer in to Nee York City part. A fascinating place in its own right, but the rural eastern tip is far more beautiful!

    • Thank you! I’ve been busy, actually. Other than Long Island I have been busy jumping into phone booths (do you have ANY idea how hard they are to find these days?!) and switching from my mild mannered self into my alter ego to save the world. It needs a lot of saving these days! 😀
