Mermaids in Brooklyn: An Urban Kingdom by the Sea

"I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea."

-Edgar Allen Poe

This year has been an insanely busy year. Many of the adventures have been magical and wonderful... Sometimes exhausting. I ventured into my year by spending the latter part of January and most of February in freezing cold NYC. I still have a few shoots from that trip I am just getting to share. 

One of my favorite shoots was this mermaid meets punk rock inspired shoot I did with a few of my favorite ladies in Brooklyn. All of these chicks where just tough as nails, modeling in mid February 15 degree celsius temps. We took the train out to Coney Island and you could feel the icy wind cutting the metal shell of the train. But a mermaid in Brooklyn knows how to be a tough badass bitch, even on Siberian cold days. I would say that my time living in Brooklyn is one of the biggest contributing factors of my mermaid edge. I've still got a clan of beautiful mermaid babes there to visit too, and here are the pics to prove it...
