Five hours, three hot dogs and five rolls of film later I headed back to Manhattan on the Q train from Stillwell Avenue. I had spent the day wandering up and down the Coney Island boardwalk enthralled with the diverse groups of people enjoying their Sunday afternoon at the beach.
The images I took at Coney Island all carried a timeless quality and atmosphere as this has been a major New York landmark since the early 1900s. The camera I carried around with me was a war time rangefinder which was a huge conversation starter with Island tourists. Perhaps my favourite imagery from that day was the countless smiling carefree people I observed.
