Hi there – so here (finally!) are all of my photos from the Siren Festival at Coney Island – Saturday July 17th, 2010. We had a really beautiful and hot day weather-wise…and I had so much fun shooting these and hanging out with friends! Siren is definitely one of the things that I always look forward to during the year…when we are stuck in the midst of winter. Once the day actually arrives however, it’s always a little bittersweet. Because Siren generally marks the peak of mid-summer for me…well, it’s sort of hard not to feel that summer is slipping away a bit afterwards. I’ve always tried to hold on to summer as long as possible – I think it goes back to being a kid and not wanting to return to school after summer break! While editing these I was listening to “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry (it seemed to fit my mood)…”We can dance until we die…you and I…we’ll be young forever”… xx Mr. Newton

You are seriously the best streetstyle photographer in the world! Your photos are great!!!
Angela27 Jul 2010
I agree with Emma. You’ve really got the touch that a photographer needs to be head and shoulders above most of the others.Wish I could be at Coney Island. The pup is cute.

I’m confused. Is this an Urban Outfitters catalog?
Mr. Newton16 Aug 2010
Hi Erin – just did a quick check of my bank account balance…and sadly I can confirm that this is not in fact an Urban Outfitters catalog.
