THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOS
"Old Barney" is an icon of the Jersey Shore. Originally commissioned in 1859, this historic lighthouse stands 172 feet tall. The lighthouse is really two towers in one: the exterior conical tower covers a cylindrical tower on the inside. The top of the lighthouse is accessible via its 217 steps and continues to attract in excess of half a million visitors year round. These photos are my take on this iconic beacon.
