Sunset on the beach at Coney Island. Brooklyn, New York City.

While the last of summer’s sun pours itself onto the earth touching the ocean with its warmth, autumn waits with baited breath lingering above in the blue of the sky.

Coney Island beach at sunset. Brooklyn, New York City.

The sun whispers to the ocean in golden-voiced tones on evenings like these.

Summer’s warmth falls onto the bare skin of the earth as the air is punctuated by the sounds of distant laughter and birds.

And the city fades into the haze like a nostalgic thought carried away by an all too familiar melody.

I had a bit of a camera tragedy a few weeks back. My beloved Sony SLT-A55 stopped working.  It’s currently being looked at by Sony and I have had the pleasure of using a Sony SLT-A77 (the image in this post was taken with it) as a loaner camera until the end of the month which has been nothing short of magical. I plan on doing a write-up later this week regarding how the Sony SLT- A55 compares to the Sony SLT- A77.

Beautiful mermaid in front of the Coney Island Museum and Denny’s Ice Cream Shop. Coney Island, Brooklyn. New York City.

I just realized this photo has been featured by Google via Picasa and it has gone viral. It’s up to something like 23 million views! (wow!!) (you can view the stats here)

I adore this photo. It’s actually one of my favorite photos I took from the Mermaid Parade this past weekend. She was such a lovely person and it was one of those unforgettable moments. 

My whole set of Mermaid Parade photos are here (for the curious):

Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2012. Brooklyn, New York City

I attended the 30th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade yesterday. I was so excited about the set that I edited them already. How’s that for efficient? This year’s King Neptune was Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling and the Queen Mermaid was Annabella Sciorra and there were plenty of pirates, mermaids, mermen, jellyfish, and sea monsters parading around in their best parade attire as well as vintage cars.

I wrote all about the parade’s history a few days ago when I posted a set from 2011’s Mermaid Parade. The parade was a bit slow this year in that it didn’t seem to move as effortlessly as it usually does but other than that it delivered in terms of awesomeness and costumes.

I ended up standing on the sidelines (which I prefer over roaming around in the parade itself) with an absolutely awesome group of people who all knew each other from CouchSurfing, a website that connects travelers with local communities. I couldn’t have asked for better companions to stand with! One of the women had a sign promising “free hugs” and I think 80% of the parade ending up gravitating towards us for some hugs. I haven’t smiled so much in ages.

You can view the full set (with over 50 photos!) here in my Flickr set:
