Forever Summer

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
