I watched the sun rise twice in Coney Island this weekend, & I’ve decided it’s my favorite time to be there. Just a few swimmers, some people capping off a night of partying, lots of older ladies & gentlemen taking walks, the usual one or two people with metal detectors on the beach, & me. I was there to shoot, so I’d like to go back sans camera to just sit in the sand with a book.
Some links to peruse:
There’s something very relaxing about photographing a friend, especially when said friend is a natural in front of the camera.
These are a few favorites from my shoot with Sara.
"NYC, You Inspire Me…by allowing me to discover something new about you every day."
Sara is a friend whom I met years ago through Tumblr (yet another reason I’m indebted to the platform), so this shoot was extra fun.
Whenever I’m in Ireland, one day is always spent in Galway at my cousins place. They have a beautiful house right near Galway Bay with an enormous backyard facing west, so when it’s summertime & the sunset seems to last for 4 hours, the view out their back windows is spectacular. This particular day was a rainy one so after stuffing our faces with brown bread & smoked salmon we just hung around watching a hurling match. At one point the rain shower turned into a sun shower.
"Since the first time I stumbled into this place 13 years ago, I’ve always been inspired by the Music Inn in the West Village. This homey little shop, overstuffed with instruments from around the world inspires me to push beyond the familiar. NYC, You Inspire Me to keep searching for, and supporting, hidden gems like this."
