Historic East Point Lighthouse After the Storm

Recently here on the East Coast we had a huge winter storm that eroded the beaches, and exposed many treasures that were once hidden under the depths of the cold waters.  In the southern reaches of New Jersey, there sits an historic lighthouse which appears to be not more than a colonial home.

East Point Lighthouse in Heislerville, NJ sits quietly along the shores of the Delaware Bay.  The lighthouse has gained a little bit of attention lately due to some upgrades that are underway.

Unfortunately, I was unaware of the upgrades when I ventured there for a photo shoot.  Pair that with quickly changing weather and I did not have the experience that I envisioned.  Oh well, maybe next time.  It was still a very enjoyable experience.

I was able to make the best of it though.  Enjoy the images that I was able to capture.

Travel Photography – Washington, D.C – The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Police Week 2013

So, I have the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C this May and document a monumentous event!  The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund each year hosts numerous celebrations during Police Week, to honor Officers who lost their lives in the line of duty during the previous year.  They have a week of celebration and reflection, kicked off by the arrival of the Police Unity Tour riders.

The Police Unity Tour is a collection of active and reitred Law Enforcement Officers and Officer’s survivors, who ride their bicycles over a period of 3-4 days from various regional locations and ending in Washington, D.C.

Each year, on the eve the riders arrive in town, they hold a candle-light vigil to honor the lost, and remember the perils that Law Enforcement Officers face on a daily basis.

I hope to share some of my experiences when I return!
