The original inspiration came from a scorching summer afternoon on Coney Island when all the adventures started. I can still picture the astonishment in my eyes when I saw the vibrant beach and wild amusement park. All my memories about the summer of Coney Island seem condensed in that simple sizzling Saturday which filled with salty sea breeze, pleasing children laughter, scary roller coaster, tasty fries and ice cream, and games I would never win.
When I went back to Coney Island in the winter, the whole beach was totally a different story. All the amusement park was shut down and the beach was empty. It happens just like my fading summer memories. What still left there was the grey world with my fear and regrets.
Therefore this collection was based on my process of recollecting my memories of summertime in Coney Island.
