after everything i’ve read and seen about jersey, finally. (ochie in new jersey)

I stayed at a cousin’s place in Freehold,NJ, and they made this amazing cake for my sister’s graduation. It’s a coffee ice-cream cake with a brownie base and chocolate ganache on top. It was absolutely wonderful and I had two slices of it.

most people brew tea in teapots, but my cousins keep all the necessary sugar and sweeteners in a teapot, which is an interesting way to use it.

the rest of the photos are from atlantic city. the sunset was beautiful and i’m so glad we were there.

shadows are lovely things to take photographs of.

atlantic city reminded me a lot of brighton, except the beach has sand and not pebbles.

always trying to get that photograph of the sun.

this felt like a well-composed photograph. i loved the sense of solitude of this lady watching the waves crash alone on this little stretch of beach at sunset. i enjoy the colouring of it as well.

district 4 felt like something out of The Hunger Games.

i was so pleased to see that they had strings of fairylights hung up along part of the boardwalk. it looked so good at night!

i’ve always admired black and white photographs of neon shop signs. i’m so glad i got the chance to try that out myself. the moment i took this photo in colour, i knew it would look good in black and white, so i reset my menu and took it again.

this lovely piece was post-processed using the creative filters setting on my canon 600D, and i like how it turned out.


do you have reasons!
