1896 - People on Razzle Dazzle ride, at Coney Island, New York City

Coney Island has so far upgraded this ride 16 times and it’s now known as the Rizzle Fashizzle.  It’s kinda scary, and if you look closely, you can see a guy standing in the center of the ride.  Wonder how fast it went… I did quite a bit of restoration to this image, and because it’s so grainy I decided on no heavy coloring, seems like it would obscure the details.

Photographing New York City - on a slender support 18 stories above pavement of Fifth Avenue

This one had a very drastic angle which was making it too busy for an animation. I put some effects over it and, though it isn’t as genuine, I thought the end result was a big improvement over the raw animation.
