The city of Asbury Park, New Jersey, hosts an event on the first Saturday night of each month where downtown shops, restaurants, and galleries stay open late. The Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a monthly postcard campaign to promote “First Saturday,” and two of my photographs were chosen for the July and December postcards.
Here’s the Chamber of Commerce’s press release on the opening event:
