They Call It Patina

They Call It Patina

There are many terms out there that beautify what many consider ugly or unwanted. But it is the same way with everything in language. So choose to transcribe your life with beautifying words and you may find that the outlook ahead is brighter.

But that's just me.

Edward Hopper's (Dairy) Bar

The Dairy Bar reminds me of Edward Hopper’s Paintings in that despite it’s colorful fa├žade, it can be very lonely and isolating when it is not shouting at the viewer.

The beauty is a broken one with two sides, a flashy outgoing one that shines when the lights are on, and a lonely desolate side that
that still yearns to shine even when the fluorescents are turned off for the night.

Clustered Custard


Clustered Custard

The information overload on the menu provides the viewer of this image with a deluge of information that couples the dairy bar’s screaming neon colors.

Dairy Bar

The Margate Dairy Bar offers a taste of a throwback to late night snacking offered by old soft serve ice cream shops, located in Margate New Jersey.

I had the chance to shoot this during a late night walk about the town of Margate outside of Atlantic City, New Jersey and found the appeal of the flamboyant colors strangely appealing, with cotton candy colors and treats just as sweet. Despite how corny that sounds, the Dairy Bar offers a great taste of quintessential summer: sitting out on a picnic bench, eating ice cream, and enjoying the cool summer night finally receiving a break from the humidity. It's one I had to partake of, whether I was hungry or not.
