Ocean Avenue

This picture was taken in Sea Isle City, NJ at 32nd Street Beach. The beach is one of my favorite places to be. Anyone that has grown up on the sand knows exactly why they love the romantics of the, “ocean that refusing to stop kissing the shoreline no matter how many times it’s sent away”. The beach brings a sense of calmness and clarity to your world. John Patterson once said, “bad things do happen sometime but remember we have to move on somehow, you just pick your head up and stare at something beautiful like the sky or the ocean and you move on”. Landscape can really provide a sense of relief and closure. Helmer’s said, “people express an interest in natural and built environments”. I definitely agree with that nothing can take the place of something that was created byy mother nature. For my example, the beach is one of the most beautiful landscapes mother nature has produced. The sand, the water, the birds and the atmosphere..I have yet to meet one person that truly does not find a sense of peacefulness at the beach. Chapter three gave us two examples on, “how the world around us evokes emotion and is persuasive”. I believe landscapes like the beach typically evoke sad emotions if you’ve ever seen the beach scene in My Sister’s Keeper or if you’ve ever scattered a relative’s ashes in the ocean..the beach does evoke sad feelings to me which relates back to my earlier statement that the beach brings a sense of calmness and clarity.




I love this picture. I was born and raised in an island, so I know what you mean when you say that the beach gives you a sense of peace. This is a perfect example of a beautiful natural landscape.
