UPDATE 10/7, 10:34am: I am informed by the photographer that this is actually a sunrise, shot at 6:30am. Whoops. Sorry. It’s because I am directionally-impaired.

Throngs of Hasidim perform “Tashlich,” the ritual of casting their sins away, prior to Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), which begins this evening. Wishing all who observe an easy, meaningful fast.

Oh, wait… that’s from another horror movie. Here is a little Hitchcockian creepiness to start your day.

Shot (the photo, not the video) near East 14th Street and Emmons.

A lovely email from the photographer:

Keep in mind that ​this is​ Brooklyn, NYC where seeing even one hummingbird in your yard is a miracle​;​ to see two of them fighting over your hummingbird feeder is just beyond belief. And then for them to come to terms and both settle down on the feeder, AND to be able to get photos of it as it played out, well, what can I say.

These two hummingbirds were ​dueling for a couple of minutes before I went and got my camera. I still can’t believe that when I came back out they were still there going at it. It took about 6 minutes of them trying to chase each other away before they both just decided to tolerate each other and have some of that yummy sugar water.

I never win anything, ever, but somehow the Cosmic Forces of the Universe deemed me worthy of winning a couple of tickets to see the Jewish Elvis Neil Diamond perform a free concert at Erasmus Hall High School. Technically, that’s out of our coverage area, but he’s Brighton-born, so we’ll overlook the rules this one time.

After last night, my bucket list is considerably lighter. A truly electrifying performance. Not bad for a 73-year-old.

Chances are, “The Fishing Hole” is a song you’ve probably heard at some point in your life.
