Photo of the day

Last week I took a little boat trip around the pristine waters of Newark and New York. It didn’t always smell the best but there were some good photo opportunities. It’s easy to forget just how ginormous these cargo ships are and you can get a little dizzy thinking about all the stuff packed in their containers.

I for example, couldn’t help wondering how many containers filled with cheap novelty items (fake dog doo, anyone? how about Mardi Gras beads? curly straws?) cross the globe only to be tossed away after a brief moment of lame amusement.

Except for the Mardi Gras beads…THOSE are a necessity.
