Coney Island

On Sunday Eli and I went out to Coney Island to get some photos before the island gets Trump-erized. Honestly, I think most of the old Coney Island is gone already. There was a distressing lack of carney people and freaks.

I'll be interested to see Eli's photos (since he does things and not people)- I'm fairly certain it will look like we were on opposite ends of the earth.

The photo above is pretty representative of the kind of stuff I like to do- document the moments of people's lives. This ride consisted of a number of reproduction, miniature antique cars going in a circle on a pretty tame track for very small children. They were having a ball.

Interestingly, I stood there trying to catch cute children as they went by. Eli was waiting for them to get out of the way so he could photograph the track. Á chacun son gout.

Pretty much my approach to photography in a nutshell: Waiting for the people to move out of the way so I can shoot the *interesting* stuff.

I haven't even *started* processing yet...

I did a quick look see at everything last night.

Not too many problems.

BTW, the people *are* the interesting stuff. :-)

4LG: takes pictures of people and hangs out with them.

Eli: takes pictures of objects. hides from people. must be stopped.
