Morning Mug: Moon Over Manhattan Beach


From the photographer:

This was taken at about 6:00 AM sunday (Ed. — by which he means January 8) morning. The moon was setting over Sheepshead Bay. I was in M.B. (Ed. — Manhattan Beach) at about Shore Blvd. and Kensington St.

An alternative title for this post could have been “Egg Yolk Over Manhattan Beach.”

    If that’s an egg yolk over Manhattan Beach where’s the bacon?

    A very different moonshot that’s for sure. Well done Stan.

    So that would have to be a picture of Sheepshead Bay if he was standing in Manhattan Beach?

      You’re right — that’s my mistake since, obviously, the neon of El Greco is clearly visible in the distance. ¬†It’s just that… “Moon Over Manhattan Beach” sounds so much better, for alliterative purposes, than “Moon Over Sheepshead Bay.”

        So alternate would be…. egg yolk over Sheepshead Bay or yolk is on Sheepshead Bay?

          “Egg Yolk Over Emmons” has a ring to it.

            That was me, btw, for transparency’s sake. It was an anon. NDP I had used in the past — just ignore. I forgot to change it back to “ES.”
