Long Island 3


Ooops!  I realized today that I had never actually posted the third set of photos from Long Island, taken on New Year’s Day, 2015. (You should see me with my red face on!!) At long last, and finally, here they are!

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.


It was terribly windy that day and this is the one shot that I got that actually captured the blowing sand.

  1. I’ve got a piece piped in through headphones from a group of folks called Hillsong, “Love is War”, and to glide through these priceless images brings a peace that does something wonderful for me, and the only word I can come up with, is … “medicinal”. And, I apologize because that seems like such a limited word, but my soul is blessed by your work, at the Book of Bokeh.

    • Thank you! When I first looked at the photos, I thought, what was causing all that grain in the photo? Did the ISO blow up? And that is when I remembered how windy it was then I realized that I had focused on the blowing sand, totally by accident. And then I claimed that that was what I was trying to do all along! 🙂

    • Thank you so much! Maybe it’s the winter, but this set sure has struck a chord with everyone and that first photograph in particular is everyone’s favorite> I’m blushing, honestly.

    • The universal choice it seems! 🙂 Honest truth: I now wish I had shot more. But it was getting late, I was cold (darn cold!) and very hungry by then. And if there is one thing more important to me than photography it is hunger!

    • Thank you so much! The one that is universally popular, it seems. Now I wish I had shot more there, but it was getting late, I was cold (darn cold!) and hungry by then. And if there is one thing more important than photography it is hunger! 🙂

    • You are very welcome! And thank you so much for dropping by! I cannot urge you enough to get out to Long Island…especially before the crowds hit! 🙂
