New York State of Mind: Forever Young in Coney Island, New York

If you want to escape from the crowds and the giant buildings of Manhattan without leaving New York, jump in the subway and go to Coney Island !

The first time I went there, it was because I was bored and wanted to see what the last stop of my subway line looked like. And I was not disappointed!

When you exit the station, just go straight and the street will lead you to the beach. Take off your shoes, feel the sand under your feet and grab your camera. Pictures of the sea are a classic — they always look great because they capture what we love the most about this kind of places: the calm atmosphere and peaceful feeling coming from the endless waves.

After photographing seagulls and collecting shells, head to Luna Park, the amusement park facing the sea. The first time I came here, it was closed and it looked like a Zombie movie set. But thanks to that, my pictures look super creepy and I love them.

Later, I came back with my Lomographers friends llablaude and Elodie and we had a lot of fun! It was just like when we were 7 years old and I think you get this feeling when you see our pictures.

That’s what I really like about Coney Island: less than an hour away from the city, you get to go to the beach, have fun in Luna Park and take plenty of colorful pictures. Show me yours!
