Chewin' at a rhythm on my bubble gum
The sun is out, I want some
It's not hard, not far to reach
We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach
The surf! The shore! The ocean breezes! The SUN! What’s not-to-love about a day-at-the-beach if that day on the beach is… a beach photo shoot!
Folks sometimes tend to over-romanticize the lure of photo shoots, but at 20/20 we always feel a jolt of excitement in anticipation AND participation. And a beach shoot is always special. But this one, celebrating the surf at Rockaway Beach in Queens, N.Y., is extra special. With a bare-bones crew on hand, we built an amazing cover and feature for the July 20/20 GenEYE issue.
Join 20/20 as we have a SPECtacular time creating “A Nation of Sun Worshippers,” with huge accolades going to Assistant Editor Jillian Urcelay and her remarkable parents, Susan and Steven, as they hosted the crew all day at their Belle Harbor home.
