Hopefully this makes up for the not nice stuff I said about our bay and its aquatic life last week.

This one, I am told, was on Bedford Avenue. From the photographer:

Those are the seed packets that hang from the branches. Usually they’re straight, but they curve as they dry or ripen I guess.

Judging from the photo, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible place to be. Like if you were on a sailboat, or something.

Has anyone ever actually eaten a fish caught in the waters of Sheepshead Bay and lived to tell about it? It’s probably not as bad as eating a fish from the Gowanus Canal (can anything even live in that water?), but I can’t imagine it would be much better either.

They are on the far side of Emmons Avenue, of course. Or at least that’s where this wild thing was hanging out last week.

I wanted to use this as a Morning Mug, but I suppose it works as a puzzle too, which is how the photographer actually intended the image to be used in the first place.

As Anne Frank aptly wrote, “Where there’s hope, there’s life. It fills us with fresh courage and makes us strong again.”

And, less depressingly, from the photographer himself:

This is a tree, cut down to the stump, bursting back to life. As Jeff Goldblum put it, “Life will, uh, uh, find a way.”
