Damn Matt. This is great. One of your best, recently. What a funny coincidence, running across another photog! :)

I like the feeling of it. Almost as if it was taken 100 years ago. Great.

Really enjoying the series - what great potential this place has, no wonder the large-format guys are out there. I never realised Asbury Park was so run down, but then I only knew it from a Springsteen album. Was up the Jersey shore a few years back - but never made it here - damn!

asbury park was a trip. i would go back there in a second. about the only business in the area left is the stone pony... a little dive bar that was closed when i was there. springsteen drops in there all the time, and great musicians play it all the time.

the sopranos wacked out dream sequences were filmed on the boardwalk.

ian i've been using the c-41 kodak bw for several months and i REALLY like it. it's extremely practical - especially on the road - but beyond that it's just really nice film. i like it more than ilford xp2.

jim - yup it's a tamron 17-35 2.8-4.. GREAT deal if you're looking. tamron might not have the greatest rep for some reason - the build maybe is a little iffy - but i went through a LOT of lenses including canon pros before i ended up with two tamrons that are the best i've used - this one plus a 28-75 2.8 that kicks ass.

Great picture! I work in Asbury Park and I believe the picture that you took called "not Asbury Park" is of the little town next to Asbury Park called Ocean Grove, NJ. I hope you have more pictures of Asbury Park, these are great.

The Palace has already been torn down, but if you go down to the Sewer Authority you'll find Tilly being stored there.

wonderful shot, it's good to know the Tamron 28-75 is working out for you, I've been looking at that and the new sigma 24-70.
