Daily Photo #134

This was taken at Coney Island.


I really thought Coney was a fantastic place to go. Even though it was cold on the day we went, the sunlight was utterly amazing. It was quite a peculiar place, not tacky in a Blackpool resort kind of way, it was very restrained and quite surreal and anachronistic in parts where the modern world would meet that of decades gone by. The eateries catering for the tourist or unpretentious pallate. Possibly because it was out of season, the sand was quite clean and devoid of people. The fairground attractions like the Wonderwheel looked old but well maintained.
