{the foto} missing coney island

18 Jul

i mean, seriously – nothing says summer in new york like a trip to coney island in brooklyn.  a dear friend and follower of the blog, anthony, took me to the coney island circus one time.  it was one of my only trips to coney island, since it was quite a hike from where i lived in manhattan. there’s such an old charm about that place.  the games, the “carnival” feel, the boardwalk, the old rides, etc.  so much history.  anthony is a superb tour-guide, he told me and showed me so many great little secrets hiding in that great city.

a few of my favourite captures from that day :


there are tons of these trash cans – all uniquely decorated – lining the coney island boardwalk.

a few characters, to say the least…

of course, plenty of performers.  these cats were AWESOME!

love the hazy lighting

bumper cars

THE classic.

seriously missing new york!
