Wouldn't you like to be here? Imagine the sights from atop this ferris wheel on the boardwalk pier in Ocean City. Just think how far out over the Atlantic Ocean you would be able to see. This just may be one of the most photographed structures at the beach - at any time of year.
The Jolly Roger Amusement Park owners took over the pier rides last year. Everything, however, is the same, only the name has been changed.
Bill Swartwout, Delaware Beaches Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement Welcome to one of my homes on the Web. Photography has fascinated me for 50+ years. I grew up in a small family that moved around the country a lot. I did wedding photography and aerial photography to work my way through college. Thus, my affinity for travel and pictures.
Today, our Internet business involves travel--and we do like to travel. So I have been accumulating imagery of places we have been and am selecting some of the more interesting shots to illustrate those places. My favorites, of course, are my of former home town Baltimore and where I now reside at the beach in Delaware, just north of Ocean City, MD. At the beach I enjoy photographing water and boardwalk scenes with varying light qualities. In the "big city" I enjoy the myriad styles of building architecture and, always, the touristy images. Bon Voyage...
