Photograph of a man with a tattoed arm at the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, 2016
The Mermaid Parade, Coney Island, Brooklyn
I liked the tattoo on this man’s arm, and I got close enough to him to catch the details.
I made this image beyond the finish line. The marchers get out of the parade and gather together on the boardwalk. Some offer to pose; others chat, eat, and drink. Yes, drinking is permitted today.
Last year was the first time to the event. I had no idea of what to expect there. I walked for hours trying to catch “the best spot” for making great photographs.
