Sand Blast Weekend in Asbury Park, New Jersey, concluded with the Riptide Pool Party at the Berkeley Hotel. What a pleasure it was to photograph this party! The heatwave had broken, and the weather was a perfect mix of sun and clouds. People splashed in the water and danced beside the pool to some terrific music. Early on I was able to sneak onto a second-story rooftop for some good views of entire scene. Later on when it was even more crowded, I tried again, but my access was denied, no doubt for liability issues. I feel lucky to have made it up there the first time.
