People always make fun of New Jersey. Of how it’s crowded, dirty and dull. But, there are a number of locations in NJ that are stunningly beautiful and present an observant photographer wonderful opportunities. This image was made up around my school in Northwest NJ on a wonderful August evening, after class. I had a teacher who once worked with me for a number of years, who had hard fast rules about images she would critique. Two of them were ‘no flowers’ and ‘no sunsets.’ As you can see, I don’t have rules.
