The last time I wrote, it was right during Hurricane Sandy. Since then, the Long Island landscape has forever changed. I sort of feel that I should be out there documenting it, but access to the beaches are limited, and gas around here, if you haven’t heard, is scarce. So driving around just to take photos is sort of not an option right now.
What I do have for you all, though, is a photo of Captree State Park a few weeks before the storm hit. It is home to the biggest fishing fleet on Long Island. But I prefer to turn right at the roundabout and go towards the more remote areas near the shore, away from the holiday trippers. The park is located on the easternmost end of Jones Beach Island, and overlooks the Fire Island Inlet and the westernmost section of Fire Island, partly in the Town of Babylon.
I just like to go there and unwind when I can. Yet I often forget about Captree since just down the road is Robert Moses, offering the real Ocean experience. Here is a 6×15 panoramic I shot using my Zero Image pinhole. It was shot with Kodak Ektar Color Negative film, and the exposure was 3 seconds long.
As always, thanks for reading and checking out my pinhole works!
