The Mermaid Parade Coney Island

I had a very busy weekend with a party in Connecticut on Saturday night and a wedding in Brooklyn on Sunday but it was the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island on Saturday and I didn't want to miss it. What are we going to do with all this rain! As usual it was pouring when I woke up so I got out my big umbrella and headed for the subway. I had planned everything down to the last minute so was lucky that for once the trains came quickly. I love Coney Island. It is not Manhattan. It is colourful and crowded and I always want to take photos when I am there. I feel like I am in a time warp and I pretend I am Diane Arbus. People are not afraid of my camera in Coney Island. They come to see and be seen. I am a little more adventurous and that always feels good.
