When I attended the 2018 Coney Island Mermaid Parade there was one mermaid who stood out from the rest of the crowd. That mermaid was Terri Claire, an educator in the NYC School system who has just retired at the close of this school year. Little did I know we would meet again at another event later in the year and become friends. Since then we have done a few photoshoots, got published in Gothesque magazine and had a lot of laughs along the way. I couldn’t wait for this years Mermaid Parade to see what costume she would show up in. Oh did I mention Terri is also a model ? You can check out her website at www.ivyleagueink.com

Psst… Please no comments about her ears she is very sensitive about them ­čÖé

This is a casual portrait I took of the legendary street photographer Louis Mendes at the 2018 Coney Island Mermaid Parade. If you live in the NYC area you probably have met him.  Thank you Louis for being a gentleman.
