Merry Christmas, which is also Shabbos.

Just a few shots from the walk home, after visiting Hells Gate. I saw a few teenagers walking by, so I hid behind a thing for a while, cowering in apprehension of their intention or attention.

Teenagers… no impulse control.

The Bosses renamed Mighty Triborough a few years back, rechristening it as the Robert F Kennedy Memorial Bridge, and this shot depicts the area “Down Under” its off ramp. That would make this “Down Under the Robert F Kennedy Bridge Onramp” or “DURFKBO.”

I don’t know what the deal is with that glowing portal on the Triborough. I’m scared of it, and I don’t know why. It has a sinister portent.

Merry Christmas, Lords and Ladies. Tomorrow is a good opportunity for having a Kwazy Kwanzaa, don’t miss out.

Note: I’m writing this and several of the posts you’re going to see for the next week at the beginning of the week of Monday, December 21st. My plan is to continue doing my solo photo walks around LIC and the Newtown Creek in the dead of night as long as that’s feasible. If you continue to see regular updates here, that means everything is kosher as far as health and well being. If the blog stops updating, it means that things have gone badly for a humble narrator.
