Here are a few shots from the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, NY this past Saturday. It was a hot day as you can tell from these pictures. In case you’ve never heard of the Mermaid Parade, it’s where women dress up as mermaids, and men dress up as Neptune and parade along Surf Avenue and the boardwalk. It used to be a July 4th celebration, but now it marks the Summer Solstice. If you want to see all my shots on ofoto.com, just drop me an e-mail and I’ll send you the link.
