Photographer's Note

Coney Island ... the "Cyclone" ... the old wooden roller coaster that was built in 1927 and is now classified as' National Historic Landmark. " A special atmosphere pervades the place in Coney Island. These outdated attractions against a backdrop of old buildings have a special cachet, somewhat forgotten by the world, a little ghostly. The park which runs the attraction is called 'Astroland' ... a name like that is already something, right? No wonder we can see this place in lots of movies. Add an overcast sky as the one we had that day and few people and the picture is complete!
I'm not sure but it looked as if a renovation project was underway, with more modern attractions ... I wonder what will happen to those attractions...
For the photo, I had to use filters because the luminosity was so strong but had I had more time, I would gladly have stayed a little longer as there definitely was more photo potential here...
