Clara- values LB’s future Arts District

photocrati gallery

Clara and her family are native Monmouth County Jersey folk. They moved away to Nebraska due to work four years ago. When they come back to visit it becomes a priority to get some senior images of Clara- RIGHT HERE IN BEAUTIFUL DOWNTOWN LONG BRANCH!

we also needed to visit the plush woods and the awesome beach at sunset.

But what could not be passed up were making part of our session at the fabulous walls of  the future downtown arts district on Lower Broadway.

The draw to this artwork and it’s possibilities is so strong that even as lower broadway remains in disarray awaiting it’s fate, ¬†family folk want pictures infront of these murals. Let’s face it, It’s vibrant, exciting and theres nowhere like it.

Again my plea goes out-Let’s keep our lower Broadway for the arts! Don’t fill it with expensive cllothing stores and more restaurants. If we build an amazing artistic center, they will come! It’s proof, these folks had no problem stepping over the broken glass, garbage and even worse items to have a picture taken in this enviornment to savior forever in their memories. Just think what it would be like if it was cleaned up a little but left this neighborhood to the creative community to develop.

Maybe give them some funding to make it great…It can be done! It would be great!
