It begins in ones and twos, growing as others join, until the sky is dark with the swarm and trees bow with their weight.

Coney Island NY
December 12, 2015

Nothing says home like a hot dog. A Nathan’s hot dog. I swear, even though I’m a vegetarian I might take a bite of one if I was back there. I never made it to Coney Island when growing up but there was a Nathan’s on Long Beach Road that we would go to every once in awhile. A huge cavernous building which was never very crowded, as I remember.

Can you guess where I took this shot?  If you said the Brooklyn Bridge you are correct!   I saw the rivets and played with the light of the sunset and a shallow depth of field to create bokeh and blur out the skyscrapers. I hope you enjoy…
