Wintertime at the Jersey Shore, 1982
There's a series of photos from Asbury Park on the New Yorker web site here. 'Evocative' doesn't seem to do the 1979 series justice. My shot of Wally, a Long Branch native, was taken on the coldest day I've ever experienced...and I lived in Chicago for 19 years. It was so cold, the OM-1 power winder, a cheap hair dresser's version of a motor drive, froze up. It's also why there's no one in the background.
