The Coney Island Mermaid Parade - on 35mm

As is no secret, there's nothing I've grown to love more these past few months than analogue photography. So as Hannah & Toni were in the city, we bustled our way through subway cars full of metallic painted mermaids, sea creatures, pirates and er some zombies and stuff which was a pretty niche take on the concept, down to the seaside theme park of New York City, Coney Island with our film cameras for the 34th Annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade.

It turned out to be perhaps the most bizarre day of my entire life, concluding in epic fashion with a profusely-bleeding man screaming through the crowds claiming everyone was going to die and punching random citizens in the face, before being taken down by approximately 450 NYPD cops, which almost got us busted when we audibly protested at the excessive use of force.

Ahh, nothing like a joyful day at the seaside.

But we drowned our sorrows in shitty sangria, theme park rides and incredible vegan pizza and all was well with the world again.

So enjoy this little snapshot of madness captured on 35mm film - although unlike my usual blogging style, I'm going to be doing a series of photodiaries, as I have tons of photos already from this trip I can't wait to share with y'all, but don't always have the time to write along with them all.

So bombard you I shall!

Much love,


  1. Hi Katie I'm such a huge fan of your photos dear, do you use a specific photoshop action on them to get the vintage type style?

    1. Thank you - I do not! These effects are all completely natural from being taken on a 35mm film camera instead of a digital - just one of the many reasons why shooting film is THE BEST x

  2. Beautiful photos, it looks like you had a good time.

  3. Beautiful pictures and words as always!!


  4. It wouldn't hurt if you keep up that kind of blogging style. Words and photographs are the best tandem. Love your post! Looks like you're having a good time. :)


  5. You really cannot beat 35mm film.

  6. Retro sunglasses are way cool! For some reason, they about scream “Beach!” at me. It’s
    probably because of
    breitling replica some hidden adolescence memory. The alien sunglasses are conceivably
    the a lot of accepted in this category, and for a acceptable reason. Wayfarers are classics. They accept a distinctive appearance with clean, simple lines, and they never assume to go out of style.Our bounded affair supply store, The Affair Station, aswell has some air-conditioned awakening sunglasses. I’ve aswell begin some at louis vuitton replica Claire’s, a alternation abundance for accessories. You ability aswell acquisition some “groovy” bargain sunglasses at flea markets, austerity stores, and backyard sales. I’ve had a harder time award bargain mens sunglasses
    online. My best antecedent for replica Oakley’s, accept it or not, is a bounded accessibility store. I’ve also begin some at ample flea markets that advertise new goods. I assumption there’s just not as big a demand for hermes replica mens sunglasses.One of the a lot of accepted sunglasses for men, as far as appearance is concerned, is aviator sunglasses. Sure, women abrasion them, too, but they attending “tough” on a guy,in my claimed opinion. Of rolex replica course, I anticipate alien sunglasses attending acceptable on everybody!My admired online antecedent for bargain sunglasses has some mens sunglasses, but they accept a larger alternative for women. Amazon aswell has some abatement sunglasses for replica watches men, including shades from Timberland, Skechers, Christian Dior, Carrera, Ray Ban, Oakley, and more. These aren’t knockoffs – they’re the absolute thing. They are, however, abatement sunglasses. I haven’t apparent them in food this cheap.
