Photography: Jersey Shore, Part 2

by Jamie Sanford on September 22, 2015

All images taken with the Sony NEX-6.

Our second weekend at the Jersey Shore was just as successful as the first one. As I mentioned in the last post, it is a shame that we haven’t gone to visit in a few years, I forgot just how charming and wonderful it is. Great options for where to stay, good food options, gorgeous beaches, multiple boardwalks, and if you live in the NJ/NY area, it is a short drive or train ride away.

Here’s the house we stayed in, 15 East Shore Way. The unfortunate website doesn’t have a link to the listing for the house, but it was rented through Ocean Beach rentals.

Look at how close to the beach! That turquoise house at the end is on the sand! I certainly understand wanting the house ON the beach, but the cost difference is really insane, and walking a few hundred feet was not a big deal.

There are lots of local businesses in the shore towns. Lots of great signage and I am a sucker for good design and fonts.

They have more than just pancakes.

It’s the end of the shore season now, but we will definitely be back in the future. I highly recommend a visit.

iRetrofone Classic iPhone Dock

by Jamie Sanford on November 2, 2010

Fabulous iPhone item today, definitely something I will want when Verizon gets the iPhone and then I get one.


Hand-Sculpted iRetrofone Base By Artist Scott Freeland Fuses Art With Function. The iRetrofone Base is a fully-functional, stationary iPhone dock with working handset and complete compatibility with USB cable. Each individual iRetrofone is hand-sculpted and hand-cast in urethane resin. The iRetrofone base is made of heavy-duty, half-inch thick urethane resin creating a stable, functional work station that routes voice communications through the included handset. Designed to be compatible with all iPhones (3G, 3GS & 4G, it accommodates sync and charge functions via a USB cable (not included). The iRetrofone base also helps eliminate concerns about radiation.

I love this. The iRetrofone Classic from Etsy seller freelandstudios is available for $195.

Helpful and Chic Kitchen Conversions Print

by Jamie Sanford on November 1, 2010

Today’s item is a good combination of chic and helpful.  A kitchen conversions print that would be very cute in a frame on the wall but also a quick reference for cooking and baking.

Chic, right?  I told you!

This is the 8.5 x 11 version, but other sizes are available.  The price might seem high at $24, but it is printed on high-quality paper.

Printed on Epson Fine Art Velvet Paper with archival inks and packaged in a protective cellophane sleeve inside a rigid mailer. Fine Art Velvet Paper is an archival, acid free, 100% cotton rag with a matte coating.

The kitchen conversions print from Etsy seller SweetFineDay is available for $24.

Gorgeous vintage upcycled iPod dock

by Jamie Sanford on October 29, 2010

This is recycling at its best.

A 1958 Arvin Radio recycled as a 2010 iPod dock. Unfortunately GrahamTronic on Etsy doesn’t give more information than that, but I imagine that he would, if you were an interested buyer.  This item is such a good balance of pairing old-school sensibilities with new-school electronic accessories.

This awesome item is listed for $750 on Etsy.
