Coney Island is always a great place to photograph, having so many interesting people and things. Here are a few photo taken by your friendly Lightjacker. I will add more to this post as I make more available from that day. All in all, an enjoyable afternoon.
Walking along Surf Avenue in Coney Island you can find this wood pile, and a sale of carved wood items, some of which are being made on premises while observers watch. I was most taken by the artistic possibilities this created for photography, especially having the Thunderbolt roller-coaster in the background. Get out your cameras folks, crank up the creative parts of your brain, and bring your fun and art home to share. The full resolution print which comes with purchase of this image is awesome. What's that, you see something unusual in this photo... well it's a blog, so speak up.

I took a walk through the small Narrows Botanical Garden in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, and around the adjacent neighborhood. Here are a few photos from that afternoon. The Garden is very near the American Veteran's Pier, and just south of Owl's Head Park.
The Garden has some fish folks.
Here are the fish all excited at feeding time.

This park off of Shore Road made for some nice photography. Yes, parks can look fine in Black and White, and removal of distracting colors lets elements of composition shine through.
Little pond in the Garden.
Rust peaking through this old white painted iron fence, contrasted by a yard full of weeds and high grass. I like it! Yes I am crazy, but not because of this.
I found this old Caddy convertible parked near where my car was parked. All busted up, but pretty cool nevertheless.
I had the most eerie feeling that I was being watched through that viewer as I took this photo. Also, someone on the other side of the door was shouting "hey photo boy, beat it, now". Go figure, quite confusing.
STOP BED BUGS...yep, that should do it. Leave it to the good old bed bug king. Oh what the heck, I might as well give the guy some free press. 888-680-9191 www.bedbugking.com
