Take an hour long train ride and you're in a different world, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Sandy beaches, carnival rides and cotton candy are a few of the sights and smells of Coney Island; a little escape for the people of New York. I met a few men who were photographing the area with their beautiful film cameras, one with a Hassleblad, the other with an 8x10 camera. They saw my Yashica and insisted I geek out for a minute. It's so cool to feel like part of a community solely because of my love for film.
Today my partner in crime for the next 7 weeks arrived in New York as well. I can't wait to share this adventure with another human.
