Category Archives: Side Street Sunday

After Jonas

Sundays is usually the day that I take a drive to a new place or down a street that I have never been down before to see what I can see.  I would then post a Side Street Sunday.  Well the storm hinder that from happening this weekend so I did the next best thing.  Took a stroll in the woods in almost knee-high snow.

This was an adventure to say the least.  I have not done something like this since I was a kid.

I love looking at the snow resting on the branches and leaves and how it just glistens in the morning sun creating areas of brightness and shadows everywhere.  It was refreshing!

 

This is the last of the snow pictures until the next storm hits.

As always thanks for visiting it is very much appreciated!

Open Invitation to Roam

How many of you photographers out there view a “private property no trespassing” sign as an open invite to cross that imaginary line just a bit?

Open invitation

I don’t usually break the law but when I see something that I want to photography and I have viewed this sign as an invitation to proceed.

As a result of todays “invitation” I was able to capture these 2 rusty old tractors. It felt as if they were calling my name “….Robin, Robin over here…” LOL

Side Street Sunday: The Halfwit

Today on my journey to find something new I stumbled on something old on a stretch of route 73 that I have no traveled in a while.  Mr. Bills Coney Island restaurant.

As kids back in the 1970’s it was a treat to go to Mr. Bills for breakfast on a saturday morning or some ice cream after a hot day of playing with friends.

Mr. Bills is now closed but the famous landmark still remains.  Mr.s Bills famous landmark has been around for approximately 50 years and it has a very strong likeness to the face of Alfred E. Neuman from Mad Magazine.  He is officially know as the Happy Halfwit

Side Street Sunday – Stuck

at times i’m stuck
my shackles tight
yet self-imposed
they keep me here
away from you
my only light
can’t save me from myself

Side Street Sunday – Fallen

My son and I went to Cooper River yesterday for a little photo session for my Side Street Sunday post.  He was my willing but unwilling assistant.  Mind you he is 23 and last thing he wants to do is hang with mom.  We had a good afternoon.

Side Street Sunday

Taking my Side Street Sunday drive I came across Rowand Pond in Clementon New Jersey.  I have driven past this road many times but never ventured to see what was there.  I am glad I decided to take a minor detour.  Although the first picture makes te pond look big it is actually kinda small.

Hope you like it!

After they leave

Clementon Park is located in Clementon, New Jersey and has been around since 1907. It is not big like the Six Flags amusement parks but it is great for the local community.

There is a different feel to the park when there are no children running around and having the time of their lives.

Side Street Sunday: Liberty Park – Statue of Liberty

The Lady herself the Statue of Liberty.

It was a beautiful scene watching the ships pass by the statue as we cruised along the ferry to meet the impressive Lady of Justice.

Due to the time of day we had a choice to go to Ellis Island or go to Liberty Island, we chose Liberty Island.

Added to the WP Photo Challenge: Change as people came from all over the world to Ellis Island to make a change in their lives.

We are planning on going back soon to tour Ellis Island.

Side Street Sunday: Liberty Park

It has been a while since I made a Side Street Sunday post.

My sister-in-law Traci and cousin Misty joined in on my venture today.  First we went to the Lamp Post Diner and had a very good breakfast.

Here is what I had to eat:

BREAKFAST!

BREAKFAST!

After breakfast we headed up the New Jersey Turnpike to Liberty Park.  I have lived in New Jersey for 46 of my almost 50 years and never went to see the Lady of Liberty and Justice (Statue of Liberty).  I felt that it was long over due.

After arriving at the park we purchased the ferry tickets for $18.  Immediately after the ticket window there is this structure that is a photographers dream.  The CRRNJ Terminal (Central Railroad of New Jersey).  I wish we were allowed in, as I could have stayed there for some time just photographing the structure and with all of its shadows and light.

So much history and lives passed through this terminal.

The terminal has been closed since 2012 after hurricane Sandy hit the east coast.
