thought it was a tourist but it really was a fish

since the photo of mysfit & the moon seemed to tickle the tourists, i thought i'd post a few others from the same night, taken at the time with mysfit's digital camera. (besides, summer makes me nostalgic for the hometown, where i could go without shoes all summer, & swim in whatever i happened to be wearing.) er, the ones i'm in, mysfit took, & the ones she's in, i took. (most of them, if i remember correctly, involved trying to get that enormous wool scarf to billow in a fashion appropriate to the scene.) i originally posted this on the tourist, but it seemed to want to be here. so.

all photos march 2004, at the jetty on the Margate Beach, NJ.

i do so love that red scarf.

oldben hangs with the moon. (mysfit definitely caught this one.)

this particular pier/jetty in Margate, at about Essex Avenue, is for me one of those locations from your youth that you hang on to, that lingers. the ocean bit in mysfit's Faery Tales? here. the place to drink beer & (ugh) mad dog 20/20 at 16? here. where do i bring people when they first see the beach in my hometown? here. so i thought i'd share.

10 little fish:

nice shots, fishfolk.

did any of you get consumption and perish in white muslin, by chance? there's a kind of Victorian vibe to the overwrought sunset and waves and whatnot...

hmmm, livewire, i notice you're in ohio...Ohio? you poor creature...based on my driving experience you've got about 8 hours of highway between you & America's Playground (har har), but mysfit has commanded it, so shall it be done. at some point.

monkey: less Victorian that Romantic, i'd say. & in certain seasons a red wool scarf, if it's long enough, can play the role of white muslin. i meant to say that earlier but i forgot.
