Mermaid with Red Hair // Sereia do Cabelo Carmim

This mermaid with red hair came to watch the parade, rather than participate. She was sitting atop a police barrier, serenely (sirenly?) blowing bubbles as she waited for events to get underway... Vibrant deep red hair isn't common on mermaids, but I think it's a perfect shade for her, don't you agree? She had a matching deep red lobster-style tail as well.

Her punk companion (wearing a t-shirt with the logo of the Palace of Punk: CBGB's) doesn't seem thrilled to have his picture taken. But what can he do? It's the Mermaid Parade and he's with a mermaid!!! Isn't it cool the way the bubbles surround his face?

You can't plan that kind of thing...

Coney Island; Brooklyn, NY

 

Soundtrack: "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" (The song has an interesting history and has taken on a whole different life in England!)
