I received this wonderful photo yesterday, after the Morning Mug had already been posted, but this was the sweet message we received from today’s featured photographer:

I would like to dedicate this photo of mine to my grandpa Abe Feinstein because I got the passion of photography from him. We still take photos together. Happy birthday to him he is 87 today.

A birthday wish for you, Grandpa Abe: A gezunteh leben ahf dein pupik (a healthy life on your belly button). And many, many more happy birthdays to you!

As of last year, the local Toys for Tots drive has collected 55,430 toys for needy children.

The 41st Assembly District Democratic Club has organized the largest Toys for Tots drive in New York City for eight years straight, and they’re aiming to make it nine this year.

Help keep the title in Southern Brooklyn by bringing new, unwrapped toys to the club tomorrow night, from 7:30pm to 9pm at 2952 Avenue R.

Sandy the Seagull will be in attendance, and there will be food, music and lots and lots of happy kids. Also, plenty of elected officials, if that’s what does it for you.

If you can’t make it but want to make a donation to purchase toys for needy children, send a check to the address listed in the flier above.

It’s not so easy to see, but this photo was shot a few months ago during a time of very low tide.

And if any of you out there are interested in why the sky turns these beautiful shades while the sun rises and sets (which, as you know, it doesn’t really do), read on:

At sunrise or sunset, sunlight takes a much longer path through the atmosphere than during the middle part of the day. Because this lengthened path results in an increased amount of violet and blue light being scattered out of the beam by the nearly infinite number of scattering “events” that occur along the way (a process collectively known as multiple scattering), the light that reaches an observer early or late in the day is noticeably reddened. Thus, it could be said that sunsets are red because the daytime sky is blue.

Some of my favorite photos of Brooklyn are the ones in which you cannot really tell that it’s Brooklyn at all. This is Gerritsen Beach, but for all I know, if the photographer told me it’s Warm River, Idaho (population: 3), I wouldn’t have any reason to doubt her.

Chances are, unless you are unusually precocious and aware of pop culture that pre-dated your existence on the planet, if you are 35 or younger, you don’t get the origin of that quote.
