So this past July I went to Rockaway Beach in Queens, which I had never been to before. The waves are crazy, it’s easy to get thrashed in the surf, and the sand goes for miles. It’s surprisingly “undeveloped” in terms of auxiliary businesses, and all that beach gives everyone lots of room. It’s a very relaxing experience, so different from the eccentricity of Coney Island. (Although no Nathan’s Hot Dogs!) I brought along my Kodak Zi8 and shot lots of bits of footage. I like the collage format…you can see the progression of the day lined up on the page, even just from the increasingly duskiness of the blue sky. This summer’s been great for all the beach time so far; I’m hoping to be able to capture a few more before the summer ends.
