I’m so happy to have my blog up and running! The timing seems perfect; just moved into the new studio, it’s the first day of summer, my wife Cill and I are celebrating our 3rd anniversary today and the first photos I’m posting are from this weekend’s Mermaid Parade in Coney Island.
I honestly don’t know if I’d be where I am today if it weren’t for Coney Island and my love for documenting it. I’m sure I’ll tell the story behind it sometime but for now, here are some images of things that caught my eye Saturday at Coney Island.
I have very little interest in photographing the actual parade. What truly interests me are the individuals when it almost seems as if they’ve forgotten that they are in some sort of costume or outlandish makeup.
This might just be one of my favorite moments of the day. Seems like just another day at the office for the guy behind the counter.
