261. PASSAGES. Cape May, New Jersey. There is something both sweet and sour about a resort town off-season–a vibe caught beautifully in the Merchant/Ivory film, “Remains of the Day.” The stillness and silence are a welcome respite from the collisions of midtown Manhattan. This photo was taken in late dusk, almost dark, and would not have been possible without HDR, Photoshop, and the insane light-sensitivity of digital (shooters from the analog world are surprised by how few lights they need nowadays, and have to adapt to the phenomenon of imaging devices being more, rather than less, light-sensitive than the human eye). The advances in photographic technology in the past 20 years are genuinely astonishing.
