:: What he meant was: Coney Island is actually a peninsula ::
Monday, July 17, 2006
I think the last Siren festival I attended was two summers ago, but lured by The Rogers Sisters, Man Man, and Coney Island's olde tyme amusement park atmosphere (fun fact: I did not know what funnel cake was until college) I made the trek out this Saturday. I took some photographs.
You will notice amongst them pictures of the Cyclone and Wonder Wheel, favorite objects of amateur photographers everywhere (Flickr: Cyclone, Wonder Wheel) mostly, I think, because it's hard to take a bad shot of bright red, white, and turquoise objects against a blue sky.
Incidentally, I can't see the Wonder Wheel without thinking about opening scene of The Warriors. A year ago this would have been one of those times where the two or three people who have seen the movie from start to finish (or played the recent video game) would snap their fingers and exclaim "Crikey! The Wonder Wheel! Neon-veined icon of sanctuary!" while everyone else would curse me for wasting their time, but nowadays through the miracle of YouTube, everyone may view the first ten minutes of the film (and/or a trailer, and/or a ten-second summary).
