Brighton Beach Baptism 12

    Newer Older

    Any church that honors the beach is a church I can admire.

    A colorful Russian Orthodox Church ceremony and baptism sprang up yesterday amidst the guys selling cold Coronas, the Brazilian waxes and all the flashy umbrellas at Brighton Beach.

    Here's a taste....
