I was also reorganizing some of the photos I've taken over the last 8 years. I found a bunch I had taken back in 2008. I got up early and drove to the ocean to get some sunrise shots. Revere Beach is maybe 6 or 7 miles east of here. We went there when we were kids. It used to be a hot place with amusements, bars, games, food, clubs. When I went in the 60's and the early 70's Revere Beach's heyday was long behind it. Still it was a fun place. I loved the dodgem's, the wild mouse but I never went on the Ferris wheel. It looked and was, old and rickety. It was. It's all condos and apartments now. The are a few restaurants and a club or two but that's it.
Then there is the airport in East Boston just up the road apiece. The planes fly low here.
There were quiet a few pictures so I made this video. The music is the same I used last week because it was still on my computer and it fit the length of the video. It's laid, back Latin tempo also fits the pace of the pictures. Though the song mentions sunsets, these are all sunrise pictures. Who cares? It's all about imagination anyway. Plus I really like this Jack Bruce tune.
And then there were the video clips. I was more or less alone with very few cars. Just me and the seagulls.
There are lot's of photos and it's neat looking back at some of the local areas I've visited. Revere Beach is hardly a popular tourist destination, though in it's day it was a hot spot for New Englanders and locals, not to mention sailors on leave. Until a few weeks ago there was horse racing and until a few years ago, a dog track. A casino may be built in the neighboring city so those gambling venues will be replaced with a different gambling venue. It's not a very glamorous place but it's still neat to have an ocean beach about 6 miles away.
There are more discs to reorganize and pictures to look at. It's fun and at the moment (until next week) I don't have much to do.
Well I've spent enough time on this post...
I'm outta here.
