- Hey everybody, we're back at Coney Island.…We had a great day yesterday.…Unfortunately, though, it was a little bit…cold and they decided to close up a little early,…and because we wanted to tell the whole story…here at Coney Island, there were some things…that were missing that we didn't get a chance to.…The silver lining is we get to come back…to Coney Island again.…So, today I'm going to put in those missing elements.…I'm going to focus on some details.…I think it's really important to kind of…look for details that could help tell the story.…And when I go in close for some detail shots,…be it the food or signs or whatever,…I want to make those pictures as strong…as any other picture that I'm going to be taking,…so details is one thing I'm going to be looking at,…the colors, etc., then I'm going to go in…and really try and find the people and the places…that are kind of inside the park itself.…
There are games, there's all kinds of rides,…there's all kinds of human drama,…people are scared, they're excited, they're fun.…
