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.

Product Review & Recommendation: Deer Head Wall Decals

by Jamie Sanford on June 26, 2010

I own this product, so I can provide an honest opinion about it.  I paid for it myself, no disclosing needs to be done.

Feast your eyes on these 3 massive deer head wall decals!


I have these incredibly large deer heads over my entertainment center.  For me, it was a nod to the real deer heads that adorn the walls in the “game” room at my parents’ house.

I was a bit worried about the application process – we had never done any sort of application like this before and so it was a learning experience.  However, the fine people of Decor Designs do provide a link to this video, which helped a lot.

My advice to anyone doing this is to take it very slow and be meticulous about rubbing the decal onto the wall.  If it is done properly, it is easy to peel off the backing and end up with a spectacular result.

Decor Designs has a big selection of wall decals available in their Etsy shop, and the deer head decals are available for $44.99.
