Here’s a little something I shot last summer. A rainy start kept the crowd thin, but was naturally no hindrance for the mermaids and sea creatures on parade at Coney Island, Brooklyn, USA. The wet weather did however diminish the mortal human crowd size. Joe aka the “Brooklyn Yeti” observed the intimate environment fostered a vibe that felt closer to the Mermaid Parades of yore.
All the creativity, individuality and diversity on display made me feel pride in my city, my country, and left me wondering why can’t every day be like the Mermaid Parade?
