A day in Coney Island.
Prior to this visit, right at the end of my New York trip, I had never been to Coney Island.
No wonder Bruce Gilden fell in love with this place and creates a lot of his work right here. Coney Island is amazing. In a very weird nostalgic old-school way. It seems really out of place out of a different time entirely.
Vibrant colors, heat, yet something from another time.
I tried to capture it this way, really candid, on one hand with lots of saturation, on the other rather muted. A mix between old and new, crazy and odd.
I truly fell in love with this place just watching people.
Shot with my Leica M9 and 35mm Summilux ASPH wide open (ND Filter) and the S (006).
