Stumbled across Mike Peters’ excellent Flickr this afternoon while trolling through a Hasselblad pool and I’m digging it, especially the Coney Island sets featured here.

On film and on a Hasselblad. I liiike. To quote Kristy Martino, “You CANNOT beat a square format, man.”
Matter of fact, I’m gonna dedicate this post to Kristy for a couple reasons: 1. She had a nice Hasselblad that she loved and had to pawn for gas money (buzzkill) and 2. As a recent NYC transplant, I know she’s missing Coney Island and all it’s weirdness, sadness and wonderousness.
