The Polar Bear Gathering... NY Style!!





Here are some recent shots from the Long Beach Polar Bear Gathering that apparently broke the World Polar Bear gathering record. Probably 5000 or so very psyched people took part. Such a wild scene- everyone was so stoked to have a momentary imaginary summer swim. It was great to do this kind of shooting again, it reminded me of how much I used to enjoy doing street photography. The spontaniety, quick composing and mindfulness required all make for an extremely flowy experience. All and all i am quite stoked on these shots, hope ya dig...

Great set. Looks like a fun event. Used to watch a similar one in Point Pleasant NJ. The after party gets crazy :)
