Soft Vanilla, Dipped In Chocolate, Please
“When this over, and I do have faith that it is going to be over, I want to do the simple things again. I want to get an ice cream cone at the Jersey Freeze, be able to walk inside, step up to the counter and say ‘Soft vanilla, dipped in chocolate please.‘ ” ~ Bruce Springsteen, on Sirius XM yesterday.
Shot this on a rainy August 2019 evening. That’s Olivia there on the left side of the frame by my truck.
With all due respect to Bruce, I had a wonderful black raspberry in a waffle cone myself.
Jersey Freeze, like the sign says, has been around 1952. It’s a Freehold institution part of our landscape in that part of the state. And Bruce has been going there a long time – he often mentions it on stage in his story telling parts.
And I was definitely thinking about the wonderful New Jersey photographer George Tice when I shot this.
