    This photo was taken in Asbury Park, New Jersey. It's another representation of a time and place I will never experience when it was at its height. It's still a tourist attraction, but for different reasons... the woman at the far left is my friend, who is taking a picture with a modern camera built into a contemporary device known as a smartphone. I would have liked to get closer with a toy camera with more capabilities, but I love the soft focus effect on everything except the word "CASINO." Asbury Park has an aesthetic that is truly unique, and I love the capture which creates softness and a dreamlike quality to this hardened shell of a building that has weathered so much throughout its life.
