Coney Island Couple…flying hairpiece

Coney Island Couple is one of my favorite photographs, sold a few of these over the years. Coming across this couple was a great joy. They talked for what seemed hours, enjoying each others company and the beautiful summer day. I only shot two prints – never want to interfere with people’s privacy. The funny thing about this photograph was not the black umbrella, or how they were sitting…the funny thing that I found was – his hair piece was flying in the harsh beach wind.
