Thematic Photographic 87: "On The Road" v.6.0 - In Case You Forgot


"Boled Over -- Again"
Atlantic Beach, NC - October, 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Lest you think that my only coastal destination in the known universe is Topsail Island, I stepped into the Wayback Machine to October 2008 to bring you this shot from Atlantic Beach, an hour or so north of Topsail depending on your route of choice. May I recommend NC 58 for the journey? There are quicker ways, but that one will allow you to traverse the length of Emerald Isle from the southern end which (last time I was there at least) hadn't been quite so over developed as the Atlantic Beach end. And that route will also take you over the rather impressive Bonner Bridge, a high rise feat of engineering of considerable proportion. If you're into that kind of thing.

I'd like to compare that one to the original in color. Its almost scary!

(I haven't done a thematic for awhile)

Very dramatic in black and white. I'm getting a new appreciation for the depth and dimensions to be had in shades of grey.

Hey, that looks like my neck of the woods :).

That Bonner Bridge is something else, isn't it?
