Museum Quality Coney Rides
The Brooklyn Museum's website has been running a fantastic blog series as a tie in to the 'Goodbye Coney Island?' photo exhibit. The most recent installment focuses on images of classic Coney rides culled from the public 'Goobye Coney Island' Flickr group .
We have all seen plenty of photographs of Coney Island rides, but some of the pictures here really stand out. Particularly striking are Chutney Bannister's sparse depiction of the Cyclone in which the ride's armature meshes with the branches of trees, and Egulvision's photo of the 2000 destruction of the Thunderbolt.
