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.
