Off-Season in Wildwood, New Jersey

To me, there’s nothing more fascinating than a seaside resort off-season. I find myself hopelessly attracted to these places—places I wouldn’t be seen dead in during the summer. A friend of mine recently described my work as “wistful.” He may be onto something. Here’s some photos I took yesterday during a walking tour of the beach and boardwalk at Wildwood, New Jersey.
