Coney Island Memorial Day 2014

I had a great day photographing the strange and the fun.

Coney Island is a residential neighborhood, peninsula and beach on the Atlantic Ocean in southwestern Brooklyn, New York City. The site was formerly an outer barrier island, but became partially connected to the mainland by landfill. Coney Island is a neighborhood that features an amusement area that includes 50 or more separate rides and attractions.

The Master Goldsmith Stamford, Connecticut 

"When customers take a seat at Russ Hollander Master Goldsmith to discuss reworking or designing something from scratch, there is no mystery as to where the work will take place: not in the workshop of a caster or in the studio of a stone-setter across town, but right before their eyes.” 

Original and always Handmade!

Lorca

Located in downtown Stamford, CT this charming Cafe has more than just great coffee to serve up. Thanks to owner Leyla Dam for the access and to Joe for helping out. The concept for Lorca came about when an architect with a love for food and coffee found herself unemployed in Brooklyn, New York. Having grown up in Spain getting chubby off of churros and drinking cortados at a young age, she developed an unhealthy obsession with both. In 2010, she traveled to Sevilla to learn the art of making churros at a small local shop. In 2011, she began working at an artisan coffee bar in Darien, Connecticut to learn the craft of coffee. In the winter of 2012, Lorca opened to deliver a taste of both experiences to the heart of Stamford, Connecticut.
