ACCIDENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER

aphotographer2

Spotted by redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer at Garden State Auto Repair on Branch Avenue in Little Silver, this 1963 Rambler Classic seems to be saying something to passersby. But what?

With a blue tarp draped over its open hood creating the illusion of eternal blue skies ahead, and the blow-up globe in the back window — not to mention its name — this old jalopy seems to embody a wandering, open and hopeful spirit.

Or maybe that’s just us, feeling a little TGIF-y. What’s your take on it?

Have a great weekend, folks.

ACCIDENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER: WEED WHACKER

mohawkwayne_ir3

Just north of Point Road Elementary School on Seven Bridges Road in Little Silver, the weeds needed a trim. Enter Wayne Elsbree (aka Mohawk Wayne), who struck a pose for redbankgreen’s Accidental Photographer Friday morning as he tamed the roadside overgrowth.

Could Monmouth County have sent a more apt stylist for the job?

SAYING ‘CHEESE’ IN THE STREET

redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer came upon Dan Campbell (in black suit) and the men of his wedding party beaming in the sunshine on Madison Avenue in Red Bank Saturday. (Click to enlarge)

The weather outlook for the next few days, with the frequent use of the phrases “mostly cloudy” and “chance of showers,” is less sunny.

A CHANCE MEETING ON THE STREET

accidentalphoto_121211

redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer stumbled upon this busted-frame portrait just as you see it on River Road in Red Bank Saturday evening: on the ground, leaning against a pole, all by its lonesome.

What could it mean that it was out there? (Click to enlarge)

SPLITTING THE PROFITS, TOO?

aphotographer_111410Spotted by redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer on Oceanport Avenue in Little Silver on Sunday, this sign… well, wow. Perhaps a reminder to the folks who took part in Saturday’s Wedding Walk in Red Bank to choose well? Click to enlarge.

FANCY FOOTWORK AND A FLOORSHOW

perry_487_ir

Meet Perry Jo. When he’s not busy tending to the toes and (ahem) other parts of customers at his pedicure and waxing salon, Estella Nails, on Broad Street in Shrewsbury, the athletic Jo takes it to the hoop.

The hula-hoop, that is.

ON ICE

It’s beginning to look like winter out on the Shrewsbury River.

redbankgreen‘s accidental photographer captured this northward view of a dredge Thursday from the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge, where a bridgetender told us the river has not frozen solid since 1996.

Is it likely to freeze soon?

THE NEW LAWN ORNAMENT

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind…

OK, so discarded sugar substitute packets were not what English romantic poet William Wordsworth had in mind when he wrote the ode Intimations of Immortality from Reflections of Early Childhood in 1807.

But our Accidental Photographer came upon this vignette on River Road in Fair Haven earlier this week, and suddenly, we were back in English Lit 101.

A QUIET LUNCH INTERRUPTED BY FAME

What’s the story here? There is none, really.

redbankgreen‘s accidental photographer came across this crew of Tinton Falls public works employees having lunch recently at the Mid-Monmouth Industrial Park, and we decided to make them famous just for the hell of it.

Hey, they keep the streets clean, right?

UM, HEY, WAIT…

redbankgreen‘s accidental photographer came across this little fella, apparently calling out to the kid who left it behind, at the corner of Broad Street (Route 35) and Monroe Avenue in Shrewsbury yesterday.

WEATHER ONLY A MUSHROOM COULD LOVE

wildart_062909

It’s got to be among the leading candidates for the official symbol of this damp summer: the literally lowly mushroom.

redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer found this one Sunday on Eastview Avenue in Little Silver. Do we have a mycologist among our readers who might identify it for us?

It’s not that the sun hasn’t been out so much as that it doesn’t seem to stay out for long. Today, and for the next few days, the weather forecast calls for a return to conditions associated with proliferating fungi. Which is to say cloudy with a chance of rain or even thunderstorms.
