Early to Rise

Early morning on the beach in Ocean City, NJ.

A fellow photography instructor friend of mine always says there are way more sunset photos than sunrise photos because nobody wants to get up early enough to capture the sunrise.  This isn’t exactly a sunrise photo, but I did have to get up and out early enough to capture this beach scene in Ocean City, NJ before the crowds and the lifeguards took to the beach.

I spent 4 years of my youth growing up in Ocean City and it has special meaning to me.  I’ve been to many seaside towns on both coasts and love many of them, but Ocean City still serves as the town that re-invigorates me.  It’s known as America’s favorite family resort and for good reason!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
