A life, pocket cameras, and a studio practice.
Posting twice a week and sometimes more!

As promised, here are some shots from the Easter Parade. Every year the photographers get more numerous and the hat wearers fewer but we persist. We think of it as a warm-up for our true love, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade(you'll have to check back in June). Some of the hats were amazing either thematic or just colorful and floral. My fave was the stylish dog with the Koolaid hair.
