Celebrating the New Year at Coney Island Beach in Brooklyn was a cold treat for me. Those fearless souls braved the FRIGID temperatures and waters to take the annual Polar Bear Plunge as I stood by on the beach being the photographer.
I think of the running in the freezing water ritual as a cleansing of mind and body to begin the New Year. Confronting the fears and doubts with the mantra – I can do whatever I set my mind to.
It’s a process I plan to apply towards my photography dreams and goals this year.
