The Silent Island

Coney Island in the fall is far different from its summer self.

At least how I imagine it to be; I’ve never been at its peak. The boardwalk was empty. A man growled at me for taking pictures that weren’t even of him. A lone musician strummed his guitar, singing to no one. A lady stared at a bird that stared at her back.

Yet, it was exactly what I needed.

Tired from jumping for pictures, we headed back to the city.

That weekend, for me at least, Baltimore beckoned.

  1. I like these pics. It’s a nice comfortable silence, that’s calming and peaceful. Almost reminds me of the movie Zombieland haha. Maybe there are zombies that come out at night to play. I have to check this place out one day!

    1. You and your zombies. Was this the inspiration for your zombie doodles? If so, Coney Island zombies are pretty dang cute.

    1. It’s in the midst of rebuilding, isn’t it? We’ll see how it develops. It would be a shame if it were to disappear altogether.
