Shadow Shot Sunday 114 - Coney Island

One of the hottest days of the summer spent down on the boardwalk at Coney Island, New York. The sun was sizzling, the fairground rides were whirling, the boardwalks were hopping - and the shadows were strong. I am still in transit and arrive on the French Riviera next week. For more fun with shadows check out Shadow Shot Sunday by clicking here....

Reminds me of the book of poetry by Ferlinghetti, "A Coney Island of the Mind."
Bon voyage, bonne arrivée!

The French Riviera? You lead such a tough life.
You remind me of my aunt. After WWII she worked for the army in Austria, later in Japan and Hawaii. In between she worked for Columbia Pictures and went on location to Africa. Like you, she used these home bases to explore the world.
I look forward to seeing what new sights you will find for us.

The Coney Island shadows are frenzied and joyful! After your move, are you going to change the name of your blog? Just curious...


If shadows could jump,
How high would they go?
As high as the moon?
Does anyone know?

If shadows could weep,
How long would they cry?
As long as it takes
To climb to the sky?

If shadows could laugh
And tell funny jokes
Would you take them home
And say, “Get this, folks!”?

If shadows could wed,
Would they prefer you
Or somebody else
To promise, “I do”?

Nothing more iconic than the Coney Island boardwalk on a hot summer day! Great shot.

The classic entertainment emporium located in Brooklyn. Or wherever fun, sun and water converge. A fun place for shadows and perhaps hotdogs too :)
