    What a weird title!
    No, it's true. I went to the beach in late august with my Pentax Spotmatic, Nikon F, and D50. The Spotmatic came with me to the beach almost 100% of the time; the meter's great, and it's a tiny camera. I hadn't touched it since I got the F, but now I can't put it down! Such a joy to shoot.

    Anyways, here are two of the results:

    Pentax Spotmatic F, 55mm f/1.8 takumar, 100 ilford. All I have is a very cheap flatbed scanner for these so they don't look like they're of ideal quality, but...hopefully good enough for such resolutions : )
     
  2. I was down the Jersey shore in the beginning of August. I noticed a lot of Jellyfish then also.
     
  3. I've seen in this in Coney Island Beach. It's because the heavy waves push the jellyfish to the shore and it usually happens around 5pm EST.
     
  4. I have been told that the various storms plus warm water have pushed more jellyfish north this year.
