    Cape May NJ is know for it's Victorian homes and Bed & Breakfasts as well as other Hotels/homes from the turn of the century. Here are a few photos I took while visiting.

    These large hotels sit a block away from the beach.

    The promenade lies between the beach and the first line of homes/hotels.

    Further in town you see more of the "gingerbread" Victorian homes & B&B's.

    One could make a career as a skilled house painter.

    Some of the resort hotels are massive. I can only image the upkeep required.

    Cape May NJ is one of the most charming towns I've visited. There are many small streets that make you feel like you've gone back in time 100 years.


    All of these were shot with either SEL 50mm 1.8 or Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8.
