  • The story behind the image:

    Coney Island is hyperrealism by definition. It is a magical alternate reality, and icons like Rocket Man are indeed nostalgic. Coney Island might get new rides from time to time, but the magic hasn't changed in all these years.

    And that might just be a good thing.
