Coney Island Photowalk

I’ve traveled to Coney Island several times, mostly to photograph the annual Mermaid Parade, held each June. The costumes (or body paint!) marchers display are hand-made, highly imaginative and very colorful.

The boardwalk area itself is a feast for the eyes. From the rides and the Wonder Wheel, the old Parachute Jump to the carnival games, the boardwalk restaurants (Nathan’s Famous–of course!) and the average characters, Coney Island is a great place to capture a unique side of New York City.

Photographer Rick Sammon hosted a photowalk on the Coney Island boardwalk yesterday and it definitely was worth the subway ride from Manhattan to join about 30 other photographers. There were also a couple of models to photograph as the sun was setting. Here are a few of the images I came back with:
