I belong to a night photography group in New York City and last week we met to shoot the lights of Coney Island. The only other time I had been to Coney Island was when I was three years old and could not remember a thing about it. I have family roots in Coney Island, my maternal grandfather grew up there and my great, great grandfather owned a hotel right on the beach until the depression came and took it away. I had a lot of fun and played around with capturing the moving lights of the rides and the moodiness of the boardwalk.

This is a ride of gigantic size dinosaurs that spin around. Looks like a glob of multi-colored jello!

I love the Boardwalk on Coney Island with all the food and items crammed into these little concession stands.

They even have a beach at Coney Island. The moon was this great orange color that night and it hung just nicely over the pier and water.

I think of fiber optics when I look at this.  These are the balloons spinning with a very slow shutter speed.

  1. Karen, I really like the Coney Island photos. The Round and a Round photo tickled me because smack dab in the middle the moving ride clear as a bell is the ride operator. These photos are so cool and really fun to look at.
