Monochrome Mondays

Well today is May 1st and spring is well and truly here. Which of course means that summer is not too far behind. Which also means it will soon be time to go to places like the one shown in this photo-Coney Island. Though much has changed there over the years, for a lot of people, those two words signal the start of yet another summer of the beach, boardwalk, amusements the Cyclone (and for baseball fans, the Cyclones), Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, freak shows, and lots of people watching. There is something so unique about Coney Island. When you get off the usually long subway ride out there, you just get a feeling of letting it all go,  and all the worries and problems disappear. Pictured is the famous Parachute Jump ride, which has sadly been long shut down to the public. But the unique structure still stands towering above the area, a reminder that whenever you see it in the distance, good times are near.

A heads up for everyone, due to a business trip to Las Vegas next week, Monochrome Mondays will return on May 15th!

    1. Thank you! I wish I had a monochrome photo from England that could have more appropriately matched the day, but instead its Coney Island! Oh well, at least I played some of those types of songs on my way to work this morning!

      1. I like them too. A friend and fellow blogger here in NY and I have talked about doing a music of NYC collaboration. Photos of the key spots of NY music, and the Ramones would 100% be one of the most pivotal ones. Someday we hope to actually do it. In the meantime, I’m thinking about it. I have another post in mind for later this week before I head out to Las Vegas for work next week.

    1. I’ll have to get back there. I took this one years ago on my film camera. If my memory is correct, it was getting close to sunset. I believe this is also one of the first black and white photos I ever took
