coney island, march 2007. it was really cold and really windy.

don't even ask what happened to the film... this camera (Pentax 645) didn't last too long.

Looks like sand got in the camera or something. I doesn't detract to badly from the photo, which is a great shot.

@Scott Collins: actually, sand didn't get in the camera. this camera scratched every roll of film i put through it - all six of them - long before i took it on the beach, so yea... it got sent back. glad you like the photo regardless!

I like the shot and I actually think the stripes in the film add to the grungyness (is that a word?) of the shot. Well done!

@Tracey: however you spell it - grungyness, grunginess - i believe it is indeed a word :) thanks for your comment!

@danthro: thanks for stopping in. the storm clouds made it look like the apocalypse that day.
