    I was recently in Wildwood NJ for a Family wedding. The morning of the wedding I took a walk on it's famous boardwalk carrying my NEX-7 and a few lenses. The wide shots are with the Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8 and the others with the Olympus Zuiko 100mm 2.8. I just purchased the Olympus from a fellow board member here and am very much enjoying it.

    Although much of the boardwalk (and town) is shut down for the winter, some shops opened up and activity appeared as the morning became later.

    The photo is not crooked - the pole is from the wind off the ocean.

    I had fun with the 100mm lens and found the focal length great for shots on the wide open boardwalk. It nicely fills the gap in my primes I had from 50mm to 200mm and the size and weight make it discreet.
    I even used it later at the wedding which caught the attention of the wedding photographer. His comments I'll share in another thread.

    A wonderful series of images! The Fall setting is quite interesting. My childhood memories of trips to the Jersey shore are of Summer, and always crowded.
